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.

E4 thru E6 advancement quotas are out....

E4 thru E6 advancement quota's are out....

Just click on the picture to make it bigger...


I keep forgetting that most of you don't understand this.  So let me explain....

You want high numbers. It means they need to fill those slots. Suppose you have 100 people taking the test, and the quote is only 1. Then that means you have a 99% chance of not making it. 

However, lets say for MA for E4, you have 731 quotas, if only 700 people took the test you have 100% chance of making it. If 1462 (732 x 2) took the test, then you only have a 50% chance of making it. Make sense?

The higher the numbers, the better.

btw: You will notice like CTI only has one quote for E4, the reason is you automatically get E4 (push button E4) out of school. That one quota is for the guy that went to Captains Mast and was busted down a paygrade.

These numbers are actually really, really good for the majority of the ratings.
