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 am new to all of this.  This little bit of time that we have left together is like a whirl wind.  She is the first in our family to be in the military so I have no clue as to what to expect.  Any information would be greatly appreciated!Continue

Yes I did receive my box last week, there was nothing, not a note tucked anywhere,  and believe me I looked for something.

Brenda, so glad that you got a letter!  Did you get your box also?  I've heard that some kids will leave a vm on their phone for their mom or tuck a note in a pocket or in their shoe.  Mine did not but some do.

Comment by Brenda on June 19, 2018 at 6:55am

Just an ET as far as I know. 

Comment by JayDee659 on June 13, 2018 at 10:48am

KSMOM will she be an ET or a Nuclear ET?  Just curious as my daughter is a Nuke.

Comment by KSMOM on June 13, 2018 at 10:28am

Thank you.   My daughter is currently in boot camp. She left May 23.  She will be an ET when She finishes.   I'm doing fine, she's 21, and was living on her own when she decided to join the Navy, so I think that makes it easier on us  My husband is retried Navy as well so we knows the drill :)  i just worry a little about how she's handling such a drastic change.   I know she can do it,  I'm just afraid she doesn't know it. 

Comment by JayDee659 on June 13, 2018 at 10:11am

KSMOM, Welcome! We're glad to have you here!  Tell us about your daughter, is she at boot camp now?  What will she be doing after boot camp?  How are you doing?
