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.

Travel on USS Theodore Roosevelt - Parent of Officer

My son said there was a possibility that a family member could travel on the aircraft carrier from Hawaii to California (at the end of deployment).  He didn't know if this opportunity was limited to the family members of the enlisted sailors.  Does anyone have any info on this OR can you direct me to where I can get additional information on this opportunity??See More

For the right individual the Navy may present some wonderful opportunities. My son has excelled because he is smart and goal-oriented and loyal: traits that will make a fine Officer. He enlisted in 2004 as a sailor and in 2013 he will graduate, with honors, from college and receive his commission as an Officer. Thank you NAVY!!
Our Navy experience so far...
It was positive and maturing. Our relationship has grown stronger.
