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 recruit is in RCU (Recruit Convalescent Unit) or on hold to pass a fitness test (FIT). Are we authorized a visit?
A. A recruit who is in RCU or FIT is still in training, therefore are not authorized visits. If you received a phone call from your recruit stating they have transferred to RCU/FIT, please note you will not receive another phone call from your recruit until they complete their training requirements. Recruits are only granted phone calls when they have a change in status, meaning they are going to graduate. You should not plan on attending the graduation if you have not received a phone call from your recruit stating they have met the requirements and will be graduating.

Q. My recruit failed their physical fitness test. When will he/she graduate or what is their status?
A. While recruits are listed in this status; they are not scheduled to graduate. They will not get another phone call until they have passed their test. When the status of a recruit changes for failing their fitness test, the recruit will know how their training is going to be affected. Some could be placed in our Fitness Improvement Team (FIT); others could be set back in training THREE or FOUR weeks. Again, your recruit will know into which category they are placed. 

Q. My recruit failed their swim qualification. When will he/she graduate or what is their status?
A. While recruits are listed in this status; they are not scheduled to graduate. They will not get another phone call until they have passed their test. If they pass before their original graduation date, they will participate in their final graded evolution, Battle Stations 21. If they pass their test after their original division has graduated, they will then go directly on to “A” School. They will not participate in a graduation ceremony as their original division would have already graduated and we do not wish to delay their training any further.

Phoenixmom, I will read the sites, thank you.  We got his box on March the 5th, does this mean that he did not get pushed back?  We did find out that we have not gotten a form letter because he does not have an address yet, instead the recruiter said it states he is in M1-James-A-Lovell which the recruiter said he had never seen before.  When we looked it up it said that this was a hospital.  I will hold tight to the no news is good news.
