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.

I just left my daughter/only child at MEPS in Columbus, OH after watching her swear in. I hugged her, prayed with her, and told her “see you soon never good bye”. Her recruiter and I have an open door of communication and he has been a HUGE help and person of support through this new chapter. So I’ll probably be going to visit them at the office soon. He’s also the person who started calling me “master chief”. Hahaha. Anyone else have a daughter or son heading to Great Lakes today? My thoughts and prayers are with you all.

Good Morning MasdterChief welcome to Navy Moms, Know that you will be in good hands here as your Daughter will also. That is good that you have a good relation with her Recruiter, I also did to he was an amazing recruiter to my Son. My Son has been in there July 5th a year coming up. and doing Great things. I help out on Boot Camp Moms so if there is anything that I can do to ease this trasition please let me know. and welcome again.

no i don't my daughter left a few weeks ago and close to graduating. i just wanted to reach out and say hi and welcome! it aint gonna be easy but it'll be worth it! start writing letters now, once you get her form letter with her address, you'll have one letter to mail every day! letters mean everything to them! i will be praying for ya! 

My son is set to graduate July 13. Expect to get one phone call and hopefully letters every week. I have written my son almost everyday. We have suffered a death in the family and a lot of other things such as my sons high school graduation and my other sons college graduation. We miss him terrible but every where I teach or show houses people thank him and thank me for raising such a good and honorable son. Be proud you raised your child right bless
