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.

That is great news!! Really glad to learn about informed delivery.  Never heard of it before joining this group.  We received 1 letter so far but not a form letter.

I went home during lunch to check my mailbox, but my postal service lady is running late. Its okay I'll check it again when I get home from work. I'm assuming its the form letter since they say that arrives first. You mentioned you received a letter first though, interesting! I shall see when I get home later.

wow that's great! i tried to sign up for informed postal delivery but it's not yet available in my area. but guess what! my son called a few minuted ago! it was scripted... he's been transferred to a new division and his PIR date is 7/27, so disregard the information that's on the letter i'll be getting... i didn't even get his new div # i was so nervous, so i may have to call his recruiter. i couldn't ask why he was transferred, there was no time, but i assume all is good since he does have a PIR date, and it's the same date that i thought it was gonna be as he left on 5/30. now i'm really curious as to if the original PIR date was earlier or later that 7/27... guess i'll find out in a day or so when i get the letter...
