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."

Since your recruit has a contract for Machinist's Mate (Submarines) (MMS), join Sub Moms and GROTON, CT. SUBSCHOOL & "A" SCHOOL MOMS and check out the group, Machinest Mates, and Naval Submarine Base New London Facebook Page.

The Rating Information Card for MMS can be found at https://www.cool.navy.mil/usn/enlisted/rating_info_cards/mmss.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. Plan to leave late Saturday or on Sunday. See PIR Day and Liberty during PIR Weekend to help you know how to plan your weekend.

Your Sailor can be assigned to either MM-AUX (Machinist Mate for maintenance and repair of auxiliary equipment), which is also called Machinist's Mate Engineering (MME), or MM-WEP (Machinist Mate for submarine weapons), which is also called Machinist's Mate Weapons (MMW), during the training pipeline. The assignment can be made prior to boot camp or during "A" School.
