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.

Bless both of you! Just remember he needs you to be strong and needs your support! He can always train & try again & pass it! Faith & determination can get him there! Just do what all us Mom’s do & be his biggest cheerleader! He needs you!

Hang in there Donna and keep encouraging him.  They want him to pass too and will do what they can to help him. He has to believe in himself!

This is just a minor setback ~ praying for wings on his feet!

Hold on Chang will son failed too and yes I am sad and wish I can hear his voice just to tell him he is okay and he will make it! I am so thankful for this group, they will continue to encourage us and pray with and for us and our future SAILOR. Keep your head up. I know it's hard but we can do it! Be blessed!!

Encourage him to not give up. Even though it's not an easy task to continue when you feel defeated, we can do all things through Christ who gives us strength. I pray that it will all work out for your Recruit.
