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.

"NBRob, does this mean your son is shipping out soon? But has another chance at an "A" school after a year or so? How does this process work?  Also, I think at some point your son's initiative and intelligence will be rewarded,…"

I do not have 351 but may be able to find out. Doing the math I would expect 351 to go Monday night. Let me see what I can get confirmed.

There have been rumors of extended BC for some time, but so far every recruit has 6 weeks of actual training with about a week of P-days and then a few extra days before or after so that the average time at BC is 9 Fridays. Some may have 8 Fridays and some 10 Fridays depending on when they arrive and what division they are put in.

Junogirl thank you for sharing your story. Reading what other Moms and Dads have to say has made this easier for me. After reading many of the comments I sent my daughter a package yesterday full of things she has not asked for but other recruits have. She has been there since August 29th and I have not heard from her other that her first formal letter home. I am hoping when she opens her package she will be pleasantly surprised to find a phone card, icy hot, moleskin, bobby pins, hair ties and a little makeup. I imagine she will have a good laugh but then hopefully think I am a mind reader.

I see you have joined Engineers; you may also want to check out GL A-school moms. You can also check out the Training Support Center (TSC) Great Lakes Facebook Page.

You will be able to enjoy extra time with your Sailor following PIR. Plan to leave late Sunday or on Monday if you are able to do that. (See PIR Day and Liberty during PIR Weekend.)

The Page, 800 and 900 Divisions, within Boot Camp Moms (and loved ones) will be of interest to you since you have a recruit in a performing division. I believe that Division 950 is Triple Threat.

Write to your recruit and ask when Battle Stations-21 (BST) will be to know when to expect the "I'm a Sailor!" call.

Welcome to Boot Camp Moms (and loved ones). I look forward to sharing this journey with you. Be sure to check out the Pages (found under the pictures of the Members) for information on what to expect and to help you prepare for PIR. Start with OPSEC and PERSEC (Making Changes to Your Profile) and Arrival and What Happens at the RTC and read 1 or 2 pages a day and then go back to them as you need the info.

Take care and blessings to you and yours.
