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.

I have a question.

My son called home yesterday and told me that he was meeting with the review board to see if he would be moved to SEPS. I am wondering since he has not been allowed the assistance of the FIT program yet if that will be something they will consider in the review?

I know he does not want to be separated. but he has also not been given much help with building up for the run. I also know he missed a bit of training because a virus that put him and others in bed for about a week went through RTC during his original time there.

I just don't understand why he could be separated before he was given every opportunity offered by the Navy. and by that I mean FIT.

donna, if your recruit fails the PFA that is closer to the new PIR date, then he will be ASMO'd (moved) to FIT where he will have ten chances to pass or be separated and sent home. See the info in Physical Fitness Assessment (PFA) and Fitness Improvement Training ....

Comment by Cdolldonna on February 10, 2018 at 10:29pm

Ok,  I have a question.If they fail PFA and are moved back to another unit, and still don't pass what next> Is that when they send them to ASMO for fir training?

Comment by lemonelephant on February 8, 2018 at 4:53am

Donna, if your recruit has been moved to another division with a later PIR date, then he is expected to be able to pass and have PIR on the new date. See Physical Fitness Assessment (PFA) and Fitness Improvement Training ....

If your recruit is pushed back and given another graduation date, does hat mean we can see them graduate or they are just sent directly to A school?

Sending Love and Prayers to all Recruits and their families who need a word of encouragement right now. A few months ago I was in the same spot asking for Prayers for my Recruit. Just keep the Faith!!!! God Bless you all! Happy Holidays to each of you.
Comment by Navmom on November 6, 2017 at 10:59pm
Prayers to all sailors recruits and their moms. Give them strength and let them believe in themselves. They can make this happen. To all moms, we all have been there, keep the faith as we continue to pray for them all.
Comment by GranmaFaye on November 4, 2017 at 3:17pm

Praying for the recruits who need to pass so that they can move on. Father, give them strength and bring peace and calmness to them. Please allow them to realize their dreams. In Jesus's name. Amen.

Comment by RJNavyMom on October 14, 2017 at 8:44pm

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.
