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."

Don't forget to make at least change 3.

What is your Sailor’s rating (job/occupational specialty) or field going to be? There are groups for most specialties and/or "A" Schools.

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.

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 Navy Occupational Specialty (NOS) 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 to NAVYForMoms!

Members are looking forward to meeting you and answering your questions! 

Make sure to read our Community Guidelines, and recommendations 1 - 7 at this OPSEC/PERSEC page.  We ask that you not use your last name in your Username (even if it differs from your Sailor's) and not post photos with names visible on uniforms, for OPSEC reasons and the privacy of both you and our Sailors.  Go to “Settings” on the main page to set your Username, add a profile image and complete your Profile.

Jump right in!  Browse around the site and check out the groups and their Discussion Forums.  You can search groups for your PIR date, your Sailor's occupational specialty and "A" school, homeport and ship, and also your home state and/or city and interests from getting ready for deployment to care package ideas.  

Be sure to introduce yourself when you join a group, and feel free to ask questions - we were all new to this once  :)  We look forward to reading more about you and your Sailor!

If you have a Sailor in the fleet, what is your Sailor's Navy Occupational Specialty (NOS) and/or where is he stationed (what vessel, if one)? There may be groups I can direct you to.

If you have a recruit, I invite you to join Boot Camp Moms (and loved ones) and to check out the Pages (found under the pictures of the Members) there. Arrival and What Happens at the RTC will let you know what is happening and what to expect.
