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.

Did you get a letter or call from your son last week? We got everything on the same day! It seems like it takes 6 days for their letters to get here! I hope you heard from him.

I got to talk to him for a few minutes on Tuesday. He said the letters are on their way. I assume that means he mailed them last Sunday. I thought they might get here today, but still nothing. Maybe tomorrow? Hang in there!

Click on OPSEC and PERSEC (Making Changes to Your Profile) and the Page will open in a new window. Read the Page and follow the directions at the bottom to make change 3 (see the words in bold) to change "Anyone" to "Members" so that this page is no longer visible to EVERYONE (Anyone) with access to the web. Don’t forget to click the “Save” button at the bottom.

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

Since you have a recruit at the RTC, you can change "Waiting to leave for Boot Camp" above to “Enlisted” or “At Boot Camp now.” Either is appropriate, but if you make the change to “Enlisted” now, then you will not have to change it again.

You may also want to update your "A little about me:" section.

Your Son will be fine...So Many of the Ladies have reached out to me because I had been feeling the same way. Me and My Son are extremely close and of course him being the Baby of the Family, I pray a lot and to me I feel that comforts me and I Know my son will be just fine. As Your Son will be also. It is ok to cry.....Just think of how proud you will be when you get that call! I am so looking forward to that first call first letter. we all are beside you!

Since your future Sailor has contracted within the PACT program, the information within Professional Apprenticeship Career Tracks (PACT) Program will be of interest to you.

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 a61nd then go back to them as you need the info.

Take care and blessings to you and yours.
