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."

Angela, no, she will not have PIR if she does not pass in time to have PIR with her division. See the info in the link I left on your My Page.

@Mgam125....Thank you so much for sharing your experience....I am just a mess right now....When she called to tell me that she had not passed, she sounded so devastated and it just broke my heart....And now not being able to talk to her, to give her encouragement and rebuild her confidence is tearing me apart.  I was looking so forward to seeing her @ PIR this Friday and now it does not seem that this will happen. 

And I am ok, if it is just a few weeks later that she will go through PIR...I just want her to graduate!  What worries me is that she is going to just give up and I don't want her too....She has been planning to join the Navy since her freshman year of high school....She was in ROTC for all 4 years of H.S and even received a leadership award last year from the Military Officer Association of America.  I know she wants to be a sailor and I am so extremely worried that she might feel so discouraged right now!

Thank you for the prayers!  :-)

@ Angela.  I was in the same situation.  It’s terrible not being there for them. But do not despair.  It took my son 8 tries to pass.  They want them to pass. I was picturing him sitting in a corner getting yelled at etc, etc. Thankfully I was wrong.  My son said they were very positive and encouraging…literally every step of the way.  They run MWF.  One week we didn’t hear from him so we assumed he failed 3x’s but when he did speak with him he had run only twice that week.  Keep your phone very close. During my son's time in FIT he would call for a few minutes on Saturday or Sunday.  He didn't want us to send any mail because by the time he would've got it he would have be gone.  You NEVER know when you’ll get the "I'm a Sailor" call. She WILL pass!  You WILL have a Sailor!  Praying for you and her!

Hi....My daughter called me on Monday (devastated) that she did not pass the running portion of her final PFA.  It was so heart breaking to here this news from her....I have been counting down the days until we were going to see her @ PIR and now I don't know what is going to happen. I feel so bad for her because this is the only thing that is holding her back....It is killing me because I can't even talk to her to give her some encouragement.  Can anybody fill me in on the process of a SR being in FIT?  Is she going to be sent home?  How long do they stay in FIT? Can I write her?  Can she call me?

My son was supposed to graduated 1/27/17, my family flew to Chicago from Florida for his graduation and found out that he did not pass the retake on the run portion of his PFA the morning of graduation. He was moved to FIT and later passed and shipped off to A  school 3/3/17. Prayer and Hope was everything for me during this season.  Connecting with other moms here helped tremendously.  I just want to encourage you all to stay hopeful, keep your sailors encouraged, moms are a part of their motivation.  They want to make us proud. I will pray for each of you and your sailors.  Be sure to keep us posted once your sailors pass so we can celebrate with you.

Tomorrow will be my daughters 5th try, I am praying she makes it. I miss her so much, and I know this has been very hard for her.

My son was supposed to PIR 3/17. Failed the run by 15 seconds. He passed on 4/5... on the 8th try. Now he's headed to Nuke school!
Comment by Cookie93 on April 11, 2017 at 9:08pm

As soon as my daughter gets to Florida we are heading that way. I can't wait to give her the biggest hug. I just hope it is soon. Will be praying for everyone tomorrow!

Cookie93: I'm sorry that you did not get to see your daughter. I hope you'll see her soon. Thanks for the prayers!
Comment by Cookie93 on April 11, 2017 at 8:36pm

My daughter was supposed to graduate 4/7. I hated that she had to miss graduation,and not see her family. I told her I am still very proud of her, and that she will pass. But I miss her a lot. I pray your daughter passes tomorrow, 18 seconds is not that much.
