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.

New to this and wanting info

My son arrived at the Great Lakes boot camp on 1-25-16. We received his box but no letter with info regarding the address to send letters to him and the date of PIR.  Just wanting to know what to expect.  Thanks for anyone that answers.

He is off...

My son left Tuesday for Boot Camp.  I got to talk to him several times before he arrived at the training center, and then I got my last call at 11:30 that night.  I sure do miss him.  The countdown has begun in our household for his graduation.  I can't wait to see him again.  I am so stinkin' proud of that boy I could just burst.

Transfer within a ship

I was wondering if a sailor can transfer within a ship to a different area.  My son went to school for one thing and was placed in area of the ship he was never trained in.  He is getting picked on badly because he doesn't know what he is doing.  He is afraid to speak up due to retaliation.  He said he doesn't know how much more he can take and has talked about others committing suicide due to this issue.  Is there anyone that has knowledge of what he can do to get out of this situation?

PIR 01-22-16

My daughter graduates boot camp Friday. She is asking me to bring several items when I come up for PIR. The directions say she can't return to base with anything extra. However, her A school is on base. She will move buildings right after graduation, before she leaves on Liberty. Some insight on what she can take back on base after Liberty would be greatly appreciated! Of course, her phone tops the list of items to bring!

Ship date moved up

My son was supposed to leave on April 12 but has now been moved to leave February 12. I thought I had more time to prepare. I feel like I am not ready at all.

Airman Apprentice

Hello everyone I recently enlisted into the Navy and accepted the Navy Airman Apprentice job title. I am wondering if anyone here has a sailor that also enlisted as an airman apprentice and how their experience went. Did they like it? Any input is helpful thank you.

Finally - the phone call

My phone has been with me and the ringer on since I missed the week 3 phone call and it payed off tonight.  I got to talk to my daughter and she is doing well, as she has passed her swim test, the timed mile run and is the Recruit Mail Petty Officer.  Mom is happy and proud. Earlier this evening I also found her picture on the U.S. Navy Recruit Training Command Facebook page making it a wonderful day.…
