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."

Events

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.

Your Questions Answered

Any questions regarding DEP, boot camp, A school or in between can hopefully be answered here. I myself was in boot camp from June-August of '09 and am now stationed in Norfolk, Va. This site helped my mother so much, its my time to return the favor.

Hi zachsmom94, I asked my son today if he knew anyone in his division named Zach from Florida, but he didn't.  Sorry, I can't help.  I so hope you get a call soon.

Lol, you are so right, who has time for Facebook any more.  We need our navy mom updates every day now.

I'm soooo glad you got your form letter and a personal letter.  I'm always happy to help.

So glad you got your form letter and a personal letter as well.  It really does provide a lot of details and I think we are all so excited about any information we can get our hands on.  Happy Day!!

Hi Zachsmom94- That's odd you didn't get a form letter.  You will have to get a password from your soon for the parking pass, it's on that letter.  Also, he said there is 94 people in his div. which is a lot of people for a division. My daughter only had about 71 in hers.  They had a chance to take the DEP test.  They did their physical test on Tuesday.   They did their financial stuff,direct deposit, life insurance, GI Bill.  Got eyes and ears checked.  My son said a lot of people needed to get glasses.  They got all their shots.  Cut their nails.  The first day processing was very slow, no sleep for about 48-50 hours.  Doing a lot of marching in hot weather.  Also, the div. is very talkative so they have to do a lot of PTing.  A lot of teary, red eyed SR on Saturday on the phones. :(  Hope this helps you a little.

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. What is your SR's rating (job/specialty) going to be? There are groups for most ratings and/or "A" Schools and knowing that will help you to better plan for PIR weekend. Take care and blessings to you and yours.
