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.

Div 248 - I have a sailor! Everyone in that division passed!  I am too excited to type!!

I am better now. My Sailor will be a MMN and going to Goose Creek. I thought it was for about 1 1/2 years but found out today it is more like 2 years. So I have 2 years before I worry about not hearing anything for months to years. I can't wait for him to get to use his phone. Texting and emailing will be a blessing. I know the hard stuff isn't over but boot camp was physical and my son never did physical things until a few years ago. Coming up is all mind. I hope to much time hasn't passed and he still has the ability to hear or see and it sticks. That is why school was so boring for him.

BZ to your son and you for being his cheerleader through this experience--he will be the better for it! My son had extra time at BC too and though it was the hardest time of his life I think it helped him really mature and realize that he would have to work hard to get where he wants to end up. Your sailor will have to keep up his fitness as the PFAs continue at Nuke school. My son is an MMN3 currently in Power School. Enjoy your time this weekend!!
