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.

My son left for boot camp tuesday the 10th

Welcome Ladies, the scripted calls are usually really short, just like if they call staing they are sick, they are injured, or being pushed back yes those calls are very short and scripted. if they get priveledged calls you may speak for a few min. 15-30 it all depends. The scripted are the worse. if there is anything that I can do please reach out Ladies and Know that you are not alone.

Thank you so much. I will probably take you up on that.
Yes thank you. I just recieved his address from his recruiter yesterday and already mailed out a group of cards everyone from his party had wrote him. I can't wait to get that first letter back! Still waiting on "the box" also.
My son arrived at boot camp last night the 11th. I’ll be happy when he can finally go to bed at 8 pm after being up 40 hours!
Yes, I am glad too! Sure wish I could see him with no hair!
My recruite left also 7/10!
Finally a letter after almost 3 weeks, nothing since than, have you heard d from him?
