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've been trying to read the posts, but haven't had much time to comment, but CO-TwinSalorsMom, I had to pop on to say I feel your pain! One of mine is currently deployed on a sub, and the deployment has been extended 4 times already! Very hard. At least they did have a couple mail drops early on, but they are completely silent now, with no scheduled mail drops.

PattiP, I saw earlier that you had posted that your son was still getting those toll road bills despite paying the tolls. The same thing is happening to my son!! When he first arrived, he had a charge and immediately paid the charge and also set up a toll tag with auto-payment. Two months later, he got another bill, with a $30+ fee added to the $4.95 toll fee. He called, paid it again (though he doubted he owed it.)  He thought he had it taken care of again, and then, a month later another bill came with another $25 fee added?!! At this point, I am thinking there needs to be some legal action taken, because this seems to be happening to a lot of sailors. My son talked to one sailor who came back from deployment and had a bill over $1000, even though he had paid his bill before leaving on deployment. I'm not sure what can be done, but whoever is running the toll road is  as crooked as the day is long or seriously incompetent....or both. My son mentioned that there is a legal department in the Navy, but he was going to try once again to take care of it himself.

SailorsLImom I can tell you that there is the possibility of communication on a carrier. They are sometimes restricted due to where they are or what their mission is but not for as long as a sub. They can call from the carrier and they will have a ships email. Of course they have mail drop so you can send and receive packages. My SIL is on a sub but he's not been out yet so I'm still learning about them.

I'm so sad for you!  Do you mean--bec our daughter is still in Power School--that there is no communication when they're deployed on a sub?  (seems logical but still...)  And when they're on a carrier--can they contact families then, conditions permitting?  Hard to imagine the loneliness of Basic continuing for months and months...sending you strength vibes!

Thanks Ladies. Sub service is hard not only for sailors but families as it is the silent service.
