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.

@TxMom  my daughter graduated the same day Div 280, she graduated A School August 3rd, she was in   Pensacola.

Yeah, we didn’t hear much from her in BC, but I kept the letters going. It sure made us feel better and I know she felt all the LOVE. I wrote encouraging words, printed out news articles and keep positive energy going.

Now each morning I send a brief good morning text and have a good day. Best part she can respond back and rather quickly.

Comment by TxMom on Wednesday

@Lulubugg Your post made me tear up at how exciting it will be to see our daughter in a month or so.  I'm so happy you got to have a visit. That is exciting your sailor got to come home last week for a visit.  Our daughter graduated BC on July 13 and is in OS A School in GL we are so excited she finally started school and looking forward to her coming home for a short visit around the end of Sept.

I know during BC our daughter did not write much but each time she called she would ask to continue sending encouraging letters.  They did make her home sick but she also said they helped.

 Good morning ladies, 

 My sailor daughter graduated last month, but we made handmade cards as a family, even my husband  participate  and it made the time go by a lot faster. I even made handmade cards for the recruits that weren’t getting any mail and they were very appreciative. 

 Since then my Sailor  girl  came home a week ago and walk to  through the front door and yell “surprise.”  She left last Sunday to her new navy home and start her navy  career. I miss her all over again but I am a proud maybe mom and now she had her phone ....

Sounds just like Jenn had to go through.


Same cruise line but he just did the cruise up and then turned around and came back.  We cruised up to just below Anchorage, got off the ship and went by train and bus up to Denali.  Then the last day was in Fairbanks and then had to fly out of there.  We spent several days in Whidbey Island with daughter in law and granddaughter and then flew back to Oklahoma!!!!

Comment by JayDee659 on Tuesday

Welcome back Anna! Sounds like you had a wonderful time! 

My daughter had to pt in the sand at ROTC officer training. They were tokd to report for exfoliation! 

Comment by Oleander on Tuesday

Anna's back! Yay!!!! I'm so glad you loved the cruise. We had such a good time last year I want to go again, maybe go higher up into Alaska next time and incorporate a land tour. Did you go on the same cruise line as your son did last year?

Comment by JayDee659 on Tuesday

Jennifer you are fortunate indeed! I actually got lots of visit time in during my daughters 2 years of school. She's back from deployment but they are underway quite a bit.

Comment by Jennifer on Tuesday

JayDee659, oh my I would and will most likely have withdrawals in that length of time. I am thankful her A School is at Great Lakes and it is not too far for a visit when she has Liberty.

Comment by Anna on Tuesday

Hello Navy Seasters!!!!  I'm back from vacation and attempting to catch up on everything.  I'm afraid I won't be able to comment back on individual posts cause I can't remember what I read!!!  LOL, took me two days to catch up on the posts - but I love reading each and every one!!  We got many new Moms while I was gone and hopefully got a personal welcome message to each one.  I hope I didn't miss anyone!!  I'm so glad to see many of you commenting on here and sharing of information.  JayDee and Oleander, thank you especially for filling in for me while I was gone!!  

I've got to say - - - the Alaskan cruise was WONDERFUL!!!  I could seriously live on a cruise ship!!!  However, it is a floating restaurant and you could really overdo the eating!!!  Gotta get back to the gym and work off that vacation!!!!  Alaska is awesome and I did get in lots of walking so that helped!!

I will say one comment about the sandbox - - when I first read the question about it all I could think of was the extra PT officer candidates at OCS would get and they were usually always conducted in an actual sand pit.  My daughter would complain all the time about having to do PT in the sand, and it would get in their uniforms and they had to stay in those clothes until the end of the day when they could finally shake the sand out.  I was hoping they weren't doing that in basic training now and was happy to hear that it is an app!!!!!!  And yes, it can also refer to being in Afghanistan, Iraq, and Dubai.  Now I have to research on sandbox with 2 xs!!!

I'll have to fill you all in on some sailor news later on!!  Stay tuned!!!
