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.

Just to add my two cents, my son, who is a MMN in Power School, has one female instructor.

Comment by FLmom 4 hours ago
Jana- there are 5 girls in my son’s class, two of which are married in the military.( Which means they have the option of not living in the barracks.) She will have other women in different classes come through A school at the same-ish time. I am unclear as to whether there are ANY instructors that are female. I don’t know the specific percentages, but hope this info helps

Jana-I can tell you that in my son’s MM A-school class there are two females and one is the assistant class leader and can do more pushups than any of the men! And my son is, shall we say, “very good friends” with the lone female in the ET class, who also happens to be their class leader. So these young ladies may be outnumbered but they are small but mighty! And I asked my son’s friend if she is respected and feels safe by the men in her class and she said absolutely!

Jana, if you want a % I think it is about 10% from what my son told me, because his ET A school class was slightly unusual since they had 3 females in it.  - You might also try checking in the Moms of Daughters group - but JayDee659 is great, your best support,  and  I believe the most active Nukette Mom on here.

SubMom - Thanks!! Yes, the 3-D was neat, especially since it looked like it was showing where the Greenhouse had been and I have been trying to picture how that was laid out, remembering it from a childhood visit. They had dismantled it and gotten rid of all of their orchids by the time we moved to the same town in the mid '90s.

Jana, your daughter will be outnumbered by males. I never found a mom of any female in my daughter's classes. I'm happy to help you in any way I can

How many girls actually go to Nuke School? I am having a hard time finding anyone who might be going with my Daughter. 

Comment by SubMom 20 hours ago

The Hammer - that is wonderful news! 

Chipmunk - hoping everything continues to go smooth. The 3-D model sounds really cool!

Tracie- Thanks for sharing, I'm sorry to hear about your son, but glad to know it's not as rare as I thought. I found out yesterday he starts back next month. I thought that was a bit soon, but at least this way he doesn't have the chance to forget much of it. Maybe they'll be in the same section :)

Comment by Chipmunk yesterday

The Hammer - great news!!! Yea!!

Re: PS graduation - my son said the other day it is unofficially moved to the 26th, they are waiting on official approval. I realized I need to make new motel reservations. I hadn't made any flights yet, due to hurricane coming, so waiting longer now. Personally, I hope that it is moved back, I really need the extra week just for myself.

Thoughts for me this week as we do final preps for the estate sale the end of the week. Hopefully, the rain holds off today, so we can get the rest of my married kids moved out of the house, especially their mattress. We finally got the water turned on at their place the other day. (that was a hassle with the landlord's responsibility.) But they found a cute place and will actually be closer to us. It is going to be as hard to say good-by to my aunt and uncle's house as it was to my parent's. This is a really nice neighborhood in the older section of our city. Last night, I uncovered a 3-D paper model of the house that my uncle had done!! The things we find.
