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.

My son shipped out to boot camp on 2 October 2018.  I know he is busy busy busy.  Just waiting on my first letter so I can send him the letters I've already written.

Anyone else have a recruit who shipped out on 2 October 2018?

My recruit shipped out on the 2nd also.  I can't wait to hear from him.  Or at least get an address.

Micah, I put info on your My Page to help you get started. 

The Form Letter now arrives 9 to 14 business days after the recruit's arrival at the RTC in most cases. It will give you his address and PIR date.

Thank you

You are very welcome. I hope to see you in Boot Camp Moms (and loved ones). 

Did you get an "I'm here call?"

He called his aunt so I know he made it. Just waiting on the address.

Did you get an "I'm here call?"
