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."

Anyone have/had their SR's in FIT this week or this month?

Thank you lemon for the information!

joshsmom, the recruit calls once the decision has been made to move the recruit to FIT on the day of the failed PFA. It is unusual for a recruit who has not been injured to fail the push-ups. Typically recruits who are in FIT are there for failing the run and/or part of the swim test. See the info in Battle Stations-21 (BST). (Check your My Page.)

I have a question about the fit program. How long after the SR fails the PFA are they moved to the fit program and make the dreaded call? My SR will be taking the final PFA soon and I'm worried about him passing the push-ups.

No, there is no Liberty until the recruit passes BST and is then a Sailor and moved to the THU. Your  recruit cannot have visitors. Only Sailors can have visitors after leaving the RTC.

Hi talorns-my daughter did not have any liberty while she was in FIT. I am not sure if others did. Once you complete a battle stations she was moved over to the temporary holding unit awaiting orders for her a school. She has liberty now under certain conditions .
Comment by talorns on February 13, 2017 at 9:16pm

I have a question, if they are in FIT, they have liberties so that means we can visit them fro few hours?

Congrats Navyblessedmom.... delay indeed is not denial. I'm happy for us all. This is the beginning of much greater things to come. Let's continue to pray for all of them through school and beyond.

Navyblessedmom-so happy!!!!! Although I wish none of our loved ones or us had to go through this challenging obstacle, I am grateful for the prayers and the support we were able to provide each other ! I also want to thank all others who were praying and supporting us as well!
