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.

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 (changes 1 and 2???), 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.

Check out Parents whose Sailors are stationed at FT. Meade (it has not been active in some time). You will also want to check out Fort George G. Meade, Md Facebook Page.

The Rating Information Card for MC can be found at (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. See PIR Day and Liberty during PIR Weekend within Boot Camp Moms (and loved ones) to help you know how to plan your 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.

900 divisions usually go through Battle Stations-21 (BST) on the Monday night before PIR. Write to your recruit and ask when BST is to know for sure.

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.

Hi.  I just wanted you to know that I was in the same situation as you are.  My daughters letter didn't arrive for many days after.  I got the box... but the letter was delayed for some reason.  I promise, it will come and you will feel so much better.  Then, you will live for the next letter.  Then, the first call will come from Waukegan, IL and your heart will stop.  My daughter graduates next week.  I am a veteran...and I know what she is going through, so that makes it hard and easy, at times.  But, when you get the letter, you will have an outlet (address) to write letters now.  That will make you feel better.  The letters are few and far between at first, but they will get Sundays off from 0700-1300 for personal time and letters typically arrive around Thursday or Friday.  Then more calls if they get rewarded.  Keep the faith...there is a process and in 8 weeks, it will be over!
