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."

You're Welcome Downtoearth 123456.  We will continue to send up many prayers for all the young men and women that are on this journey that are trying to pass.

Hello RJNavyMom, Awww that is awesome. Thank you so much for the information, advise and word of encouragement! It's heartbreaking to have to go through this with him but your right we can only encourge him to never give up, listen and do what to his instructors tell him to do but most importantly to rely on God for Everything. I can't wait to hug him. Good Luck and God Bless you and your Sailor. Prayers for our SRs and Families.

Hello Downtoearth 123456 My Son was placed in the FIT Division for his swim about eight days before his scheduled graduation date. Although he was devastated we all encouraged him not to give up. He had to take swim lessons twice a day. They are allowed to test after they show that they have corrected and improved in the areas that they are having trouble in. Encourage your SR to take what they are telling to do and just do it. They are there to help them pass. My Son didn’t have to do any other training while in FIT because he had passed everything but the swim. On the day of his PIR he finally passed!!!! He missed his graduation date but it was ok because today he is still a Sailor who is now in “A” School. I pray that your SR will keep swimming!!! Blessings to you both.

Hi All, Does anyone know what happens to SR when in the Fit division due to failing swim test? Do they just have him learn how to swim everyday or does he have to train the same as everyone else? Thanks.

It’s 4:30 Chicago time and I haven’t heard from my SR — so either he didn’t pass or he hasn’t been allowed to call yet...gosh, this waiting game is tough!
Comment by Navmom on October 10, 2017 at 3:24pm


I will be praying for your son, 20 seconds is nothing. HE CAN DO THIS!!  When I finally got to talk to my son this past Friday, he said his RDC ran with him- They will help him pass and he will become a sailor- keep the faith and light up a blue candle if possible for him- I believe their tests are at around 4:00 AM.

Keep us posted!

Phew! heard from my SR today and got the whole story from him. His spirits are good and he will retest the run in Wednesday - he only needs to shave 20 seconds off his time and he said he’s been working on it everyday and is confident he will pass. Puts this momma’s heart at ease to hear from him ❤️
Comment by MomOf4 on October 7, 2017 at 6:29pm
His graduation date has already passed :-( so he will just be passing the PFA, doing battlestations, then going to A school. We haven’t heard from him since the call on tues 10/3....
Comment by GranmaFaye on October 7, 2017 at 1:45pm


don't change your travel plans yet. He will be given a chance to try to get with his regular division. That is a heat-breaking call that stuns you at first...but fight back. The devil is a liar. He didn't come this far not to make it. His run will be successful.
