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.

HDragonfly 42. My son went through BC a year ago and than went to Pensacola for Air Traffic Controller school. He is now stationed in NJ.  If you have any questions feel free to ask.

My son leaves for BC in about a week.  Then after he will be headed to Pensacola for Air Traffic Controller.  I am sure I am driving my son nuts telling him all I am researching and what to expect, but helps put me at ease knowing.  Excited, proud and of course worried that all you teach has sunk in...LOL.

There was not a limit when my son graduated from there last July.

My Sailor will be graduating A school in Pensacola next month.  Does anyone know if there's a limit on the number of people who may attend graduation?

 TrueBlue Amber There are several ships (barracks) at NAS Pensacola.  There are some for the Marines, Air Force, and Navy.  My son was in one for several weeks, then the whole barracks were moved to another one as the barracks changed from Navy to one of the other military branches.  The sailors are in a room with three bunks and share a bathroom with another room.  My son has only had one roommate and one headmate.

Amber 3, he is in DEP currently and I'll be leaving for BC in August. A School in October, so a ways behind you.

What do you mean about housing? I thought that would be assigned to them at A school.
