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.

All the emotions

My recruit left 12/18 and I have had mixed emotions since the departure. I’m so proud and I know logically my recruit has everything they need. I’m just missing my recruit so much. We are extremely close and it’s the patiently waiting for letters…Continue

I'd be careful with the tweezers cause if you just put them in an envelope they won't go through the postal system, even wrapped. I'd use the smallest padded envelope, even if she has to open it in front of others it would just be those items and they are ok.

LL mom I got away with sending my daughter ace bandages, i just put them in a standard envelope and unrolled them so they were flat. So I'd think anything in a standard envelope could work. 

Comment by LL MOM on July 6, 2018 at 1:52pm

In my daughters letter yesterday she requested notecards, tweezers and stamps.  Am I allowed to send those?  Also her church wants to send her a bible, is there a size maximum?  I did tell that that they had to write Bible on the outside and that they could not include anything else and that it would be opened in front of her division.

Happy 4th of July everyone! 

Congrats to everyone too! -- Mom's who got letters (Yay!), Anna's son's re-enlistment and JayDee's daughter's anniversary! 

Somehow I'm not getting all these posts. Sorry for missing all this great stuff!
