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."

"Colton'sMom, recruits cannot keep clothing items. He may have decided that the cost for shipping was more than he was willing to pay, so he trashed or donated them."

"Kris, the divisions for the 05/05/2017 PIR date are posted at http://www.bootcamp.navy.mil/upcoming_grads.html. DIV 147 is in the 05/12/2017 TG and that will not change. Hopefully you will be able to see the Livestream or at least watch the DVD…"

Kris: I was able to attend.  I live about a hour south of The United Center. 
I wouldn't tell him you can't make it until we are real close to that date.  Are you on Facebook?  I am thinking of trying the Live Stream so my sisters can see the ceremony.  Does anyone know if that is allowed?  My son is James. I wonder if they know each other? If you want to send me a friend request, message me here.  I have some pictures from the wearing in and maybe you can catch see him.

Make at least change 3 at the bottom of OPSEC and PERSEC (Making Changes to Your Profile) (clickable link).

There may be other changes you need to make as well, so read and consider each of the changes.

Another change that I recommend that is mentioned in change 1 is to change the ZIP Code to one that is not easily associated with you or your recruit.

The Page, What does ??? mean? (A Guide to Navy Abbreviations and Terminology), will help you with many of the new terms you will come across.

Arrival and What Happens at the RTC within Boot Camp Moms (and loved ones) will let you know what will soon be happening and what to expect.

At 5:49pm on March 15, 2017, lemonelephant said…

Since your recruit has a contract for Air Traffic Controller (AC), join Air Traffic Controller Moms, Pensacola, FL A School: NAS and Corry Station, and Parents of A School Sailors in Pensacola and check out Airman Family and Friends.

The Rating Information Card for AC can be found at https://www.cool.navy.mil/usn/enlisted/rating_info_cards/ac.pdf. (If you get the security warning, it is safe to go there.)

Your Sailor will most likely fly out to "A" School the day after PIR, but may fly out on Sunday due to flight availability issues. Plan to leave on Sunday if you are able. See PIR Day and Liberty during PIR Weekend to help you know how to plan your weekend. 

(Air Traffic Controller was originally known as Air Controlman.)

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.

What is your recruit’s rating (job/occupational specialty) or field going to be? There are groups for most specialties and/or "A" Schools and knowing that will help you to better plan for PIR weekend.

Take care and blessings to you and yours.

Welcome! Be sure to join the Boot Camp Moms group. You'll find lots of good info there and eventually they post a page for your specific PIR (graduation date).  Here's the link:
