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.

The majority of those in the RCU will eventually become Sailors. It doesn't matter how long it takes, no one will care that it took her longer to get there once she is in the fleet, just that she does what she is trained to do.

What is your Sailor's rating (job/specialty) going to be? There are groups for most ratings and/or "A" Schools.

Join SHIP 04 DIV 2341 for more information on the RCU. I also invite you to join Boot Camp Moms (and loved ones) and to check out the Pages (found under the pictures of the Members) there. There is some info on the RCU in What does ??? mean?  (A Guide to Navy Abbreviations and Terminology). Take care and blessings to you and yours.
