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 flew out to boot camp in Great Lakes 2 weeks ago tomorrow. I received his box last week, very excited, and his form letter yesterday. Never been so happy to see his crusty old work boots and to read his hen scratch on an envelope!

My poor son would be the gpa of his division at the ripest of allowed age! But I guess so good so far! I miss him so much!

My son leaves on April 4.  I am now trying to make sure that he has everything he needs.  One of the items listed is a "skinny" wallet.  Is there dimensions anywhere that I should be following,  or is any thin bifold o.k.?  Thanks in advance for your help.

Ship 06 Div 108

My son did his swear in on January 30. I received his box February 3rd. Just got his form letter today, he's in Ship 06 Div 108. His PIR is March 31st. Does anyone else have loved ones on this ship and or division? I'm not sure if I'm doing this right, I'm not good with technology! Can someone help me make sure I'm in the right group?
