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."

Events

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.

Goodnight Theresa, goodnight all.....
Comment by Vee, Michael's Proud Grandmother on March 31, 2009 at 10:20pm
I'm here, Theresa...did you see my comment just before your last one????

Yes, Gary T, we ladies get kinda chatty once in awhile....but bear with us.
Comment by Vee, Michael's Proud Grandmother on March 31, 2009 at 10:18pm
Theresa, that seems to be the progression of ships with our GM sailors; i.e., the Franklin, then the Enterprise. I wonder if that is just that way with GMs or other rates?? Not an important question, just a thought in my mind. I'm going to close down tonight and I'll catch you tomorrow. HAGN

Will...thanks, that is exactly what I wanted to hear. Now I can keep track of how he is doing!!! Sounds just like a "grandma" doesn't it? I was pretty sure it was somewhat self-paced. THANKS AGAIN our fearless leader....

Karen, you are so very welcome! We are glad you joined us. I am still learning all about the Navy life, also. I am learning a lot by just reading the Qs& As on here.

Awe...Theresa...aren't you just the lucky one! Way to go and what a neat and considerate son you have....Vee
Comment by Vee, Michael's Proud Grandmother on March 31, 2009 at 9:53pm
Will or anyone who knows...approximately how long is ATT School for GM? I am sure this has been posted many times before, but I am curious.
Comment by Vee, Michael's Proud Grandmother on March 31, 2009 at 8:19pm
Will....lol...it's ok to break that sweat running 6 miles, but we are still trying to get you to sweat on here....HAGN
Comment by Vee, Michael's Proud Grandmother on March 31, 2009 at 8:11pm
HI again, Karen...I'm glad you posted your question for Will on here. I kinda have a question for you, and maybe for Will, also. It took my grandson 76 days from his PIR on 01-09-09 to get to ATT school last Thursday for GM. Are you sure Corey is starting A-School so soon after his PIR??? Okay, Will, are you sweating a little bit on this one??? Thanks, Vee
Comment by Vee, Michael's Proud Grandmother on March 31, 2009 at 7:45pm
Here you go, Theresa....I just looked it up myself about 10 minutes ago...
http://usmilitary.about.com/od/enlistedjob1/a/gm.htm I hope this helps until Will gets back. I'm interested in his answer, too....Vee
