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.

Happy 8th Navy Anniversary to my sailor! She reenlisted for six more. She must like it. Thank you to all my Navy Mom friends who comfort me in the hard times and rejoice with me in the good times. I guess you all are stuck with me for a few more years.

Ouch!!  Sorry to hear that Kathy.  But falling down a ladder and only breaking her finger is pretty good!!  Glad it wasn't more serious!!  But I hope they are able to help her so her finger heals completely and properly!!!

Hi Anna
Thank you she went thru hell during chief season but she made it we are so Proud of her. I hope your son gets it this next time. My daughter is at sea and fell down the ladder well a few weeks ago and broke her finger they may have to do surgery on her because she had a spiral break and it's not healing right so waiting to here if that will happen or not. She's one tough cookie though.

Congratulations to your daughter!!!!  My son passed the Chief's test but did not get selected.  We'll see how this next board goes!!!

Hi tpadul, welcome to our Navy family!! My daughter is my 1 and only, so I know exactly what you are going through. Hang on because it's like a roller coaster, your emotions will go up and down. I know with my daughter for the first week that she was gone every time someone mentioned her name I cried. Once you get that first letter you will feel better just knowing she's OK. Make sure you save those letters they are the best. I can remember when my daughter would write she would say how she did something and then she'd say I'm so proud of myself!! That made me feel so good. On March 29th my daughter will have been in the navy for 11 years, she just made Chief this past Sept. She is on a ship now and on deployment been gone since Oct. I'm looking forward to Spring when she comes back. Your daughters PIR will be here before you know it. I hope you are going there's nothing like seeing them in that uniform for the very first time!! Hang in there once those letters start coming you will feel better!! They make them write every Sunday. Let me know if I can answer any questions you may have OK

Hi There! I just joined this group, my only child, my daughter is now in Boot Camp and arrived there on Feb 21st. She is going to a QM. Her PIR date is set for 4-21-17. I'm still waiting for her initial form letter with all her information but I was able to get her Ship and Division number last Friday from her recruiter because so far I still have not received her form letter.  I'm so excited but I miss my daughter terribly. We are very close and I have never gone this long without any kind of communication with her.

Said goodbye to my sweet girl today, as she heads out to her first command. Bootcamp was hard, A school was a little easier, but after having her home for 2 weeks, after 5 months gone including christmas, her birthday, easter... it was so nice to have her loud fun self home. Her boyfriend proposed while she was home, he leaves for the army in June. The journey my little gal faces will be tough, but everyday is a gift, and I'm thankful for our faith in God to get us through each day. Please 3 years go fast!

My daughter is in GC, studying for NUKE, ET.  She is in A school.  Anyone else with daughters in GC for A school?

This is the first year mine won't be home during Christmas or New year's too. Not happy about it but i have to deal. It's so hard to get in the spirit for the Holidays!
