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.

My son has been well cared for by his extended Navy family, every step of his career. The Navy has insured that he has the training, education and experience he needs to do his job well. He has become a responsible, squared away sailor and we are very, very proud of his accomplishments.

It was positive and maturing. Our relationship has grown stronger.

Congratulations to you as well! Wasn't it all great. I thought about you, realizing that you were celebrating everything three hours before we were. We had a grand time.

The Reaper is long steep hill that is climbed at the end of the Crucible. It is pretty tough, thus the nickname. If you haven't read it, get "Into the Crucible." While it is about the SD Crucible it is interesting in terms of the underlying philosophy. At SD, it seems phone calls are kept to a minimum. It also varies by platoon. All the other platoons, except my grandson's, were allowed power bars and/or cookies.

Bryce's platoon earned Honor Platoon!

What time is your son scheduled to finish?

Sue, Golf Company should be approaching the Reaper about then. They are scheduled to finish around 8:00 a.m. I will be saying some prayers for Kilo Company. We're getting close ... OOH RAH!
