OPSEC - Navy Operations Security

Always keep Navy Operations Security in mind.  In the Navy, it's essential to remember that "loose lips sink ships."  OPSEC is everyone's responsibility. 

DON'T post critical information including future destinations or ports of call; future operations, exercises or missions; deployment or homecoming dates.  

DO be smart, use your head, always think OPSEC when using texts, email, phone, and social media, and watch this video: "Importance of Navy OPSEC."

Please note! Changes to this guide happened in October 2017. There are now tickets issued, and there are no longer parking passes for PIR.

Please see changes to attending PIR in the PAGES column. The PAGES are located under the member icons on the right side.

No it’s not just you. I’m there with you. I received my first phone call on December 9th. We talked for 30 minutes but he began to cry when it was time to hang up. Just broke my heart. Thank God his PIR is January 19th. Division 063.

I hope this has been straightened out for you.  My daughter also left Nov 27.  Form letter stated Jan 26th would be graduation.  Made all the arrangements and then received notice it was actually Jan 19th.  Now having trouble making arrangements in one hotel.  I will just be happy to see my girl!
