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.

Hello my name is Keisha and i am the creator of this group. Thanks for joining and i hope that all the advice this group gives is helpful

Location: From Atlanta, GA all the way to Cali-forn-i-a now in Washington State
Members: 3801
Latest Activity: yesterday

I'm a Navy Wife and I created this group back when I was a girlfriend and my now husband had gone to bootcamp. Its funny because i joined this website when they had under 50 members. This website has been sooooo helpful and I met so many people on here that gave great advice. I made this group so that we could all come together and give eachother advice and share ideas. I see that this group is growing more and more by the day, Im happy to see that because so many wives/fiances/and girlfriends are clueless when it comes the military lifestyle. Not knowing what to expect and not knowing about deployments, bootcamp, duty stations, etc. I want this to be the place you all recommend because so many people on this site are knowledgeable and very helpful. Once again thanks for joining my group and i hope you get all the information you need. I dont get to log on as much as i used to but i try my best to get on here. So if u have any questions feel free to make a discussion topic and Im positive that it will get answered if not, inbox me :-) Take Care ♥

When reserving hotel online, does it have to be reserved under the sailor’s name?

Comment by Anti M on June 22, 2018 at 9:07am

That is not too far if you have a car.  Their curfew tends to be 2000 or 2100, and they need to be there early as they need to be signed in and to walk back to the barracks.  The Boot Camp Moms group has more detailed information, so join that group, it is very, very active and you'll find all your answers.  There are smaller PIR groups there too, one for each graduating training group.

Thanks Anti!

Does anyone have an experience at the Embassy Suites in Deerfield, IL? I’m looking to book our stay there. It’s about 20min (15miles) away from the base. Any opinions? Is this too far? Also what’s their curfew like? When can they get picked up and when do they need to be at the gates?

Comment by Anti M on June 17, 2018 at 9:53am

What kind of food does he like?  A nice big meal is usually one thing they like.  Some want to go shopping for new underwear. Some want to see the newest movie!

Going to Chicago, use the train.  Be hyper-aware of curfews,  

Others just like to relax in the room, catch up online, and take long showers all by themselves.

Hi all, does anyone have any suggestions for great places to take my recruit the weekend after PIR? 

Comment by Leslie on June 15, 2018 at 7:58pm

Awesome! Thanks so much Diesel

Comment by DieselLady on June 15, 2018 at 7:57pm

Leslie-  yup! That’s exactly what I did, she won’t be able to stay with you overnight but you’ll be able to hang out almost all day Saturday and Sunday. 

Comment by Leslie on June 15, 2018 at 7:55pm

Thank you so much! I will get on that in the next couple of days. I’m planning to arrive the afternoon before graduation and leaving Monday morning since they’ll have liberty for the weekend. Did anyone else do this?

Comment by DieselLady on June 15, 2018 at 7:38pm
Leslie— reserve the room now! Navy lodge fills up super fast and they are flexible so if her fate changes you can cancel/alter your reservation without any fees. So it’s bettee to have one and change it than not have one if it doesn’t change. Also, you can book your flight but make sure it’s refundable or exchangeable. This is why I like southwest- they don’t charge you to change flights.
