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! I have a question I was hoping someone may be able to answer. I know that the first letter you receive from your future sailor containing the graduation date, address, etc.. comes a week or two after they arrive. However, I was wondering if they can only initially send one letter to one person? Or are they going to be able to send this letter to more than one person? Thank you and wish you all the best!
