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.

Hello, my first time posting. My son has not even signed the official documents yet but I'm wondering if he will be able to take retainers with him when he leaves for BC? We have the option of getting permanent ones or ones that are removable. Has any one else had to deal with this, if so I would appreciate any info you have. Thank you so much!

Permanent retainers would be disqualifying.  I have heard of people keeping their retainers to wear at night only, but only a recruiter can say 100% what the current policy is.

He will definitely be able to have a removable retainer. My son just left yesterday for BC and he took his. He was not permitted to have any brackets on his teeth. When he signed a year ago we had to get a letter from his orthodontist stating his treatment would be completed before his ship date.
Thank you so much for the response. Yes, I also have to get a letter from his ortho. I was just hoping he would be able to take the retainers. Thank you!
And Congrats by the way! How exciting for you and him!!
