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.

Hi.  My son started OCS on 9/1, and I got the call last night that he was rolled to H Class, because he didn't meet his PT requirements.  It is what it is, just looking to make some friends and find some support.

Thank you Quilter!

Melissa, I just saw your post. I’m very sorry to hear about your son. Just remember to be there for him and listen when he wants to talk. Reassure him that he is still the best version of himself no matter what!!! Both of you stay strong, tomorrow is another day and more adventures!! Encourage your son to keep his chin up!! Something may still work out.

Thank you navymom1304! I'm anxious to hear from him! Praying he is ok.

Melissa - I just saw your post and my heart goes out to you!  In 2015, my son was accepted into the NUPOC (nuclear) program as a sub-nuke, a career he had always wanted. The day before graduation at OCS (right before the Hi-Moms reception) he was npq'd from sub-nuke because of a head injury suffered years before. He graduated OCS but was not commissioned because he had no designation and he really didn't want to do anything else but nuclear. They kept him back at Newport in something called student pool (where the DOR kids end up) until they cleared him from NUPOC and he either re-designated or left the Navy. While he was back in student pool, he checked out the CEC (engineering corps) and thought it sounded pretty interesting. Something will work out for your LO and in the long run, it might even be better. All the best.

I missed a call from my son. The message he left was devasting. He was disqualified from flight because of minor scoliosis. They knew about this before he was accepted. They may have also discovered a previously unknown medical condition.. It is killing me that I can't hug him. So now he is in H Class until he is medically cleared.

Hello! While in H-Class, do our LOs have any sort of phone or email privileges? Thanks!

Comment by Quilter on January 19, 2016 at 11:27pm

Just wanted to check in and say hello to everyone. I hope your LO's are doing fine and moving forward.

Remember to write often should your LO end up in H-Class. I know my LO enjoyed getting letters from home and pictures of some of his family and friends encouraging him to stay focus and that "he's got this"!!

Be creative, I just download photos onto plain white paper and placed it inside his written letters from home. The photos made him smile!! 

Hang in there!! Believe it or not, H-class was the best thing for my LO.... He became a leader of his class once he rejoined and classed up.

Good Luck everyone!!

If anyone has any questions about H-Class, ask away!! We are here for you!! Just remember, write your LO's everyday and encourage them.  My LO had visitors from his buddies and one asked him.."If you knew this program would be 15 weeks instead of 12 weeks, would you still have come?"  That saved my LO!!! My LO said that those extra 3 weeks flew by!!! :)
