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.

This is the reason we keep saying No news is good news. I got a call. He has been set back 3 weeks, it was his run time. My heart hurts for him. He wants to so bad.  I hope the 3 weeks does him good because I don't know what will happen if he can't do it. All I can do is pray and change my travel plans.

Kbpoohbear - I have not been following BC Moms for a couple of weeks. I just saw your notes about your son. I echo mmrm  completely. I can't imagine all the emotions you are dealing with, but I am praying for you and your son. And sometimes all we can do is just pray for our children.

N4M Hugs!!! - Also, I know it is hard to not receive mail and news from them, but my son said he only had about 20 min or so on a Sunday to write, because he had other responsibilities to get done and I also found out later, that he was actually doing some tasks for his bunkmate, so that he could make it to chapel. The lack of letters or information in no way means he doesn't want to share with you. He just may not have the time.  Hang in there as you have been doing.

I feel your pain as well.  My son was set to graduate on Friday but yesterday I received the voicemail saying he had been set back three weeks and his new graduation date is June 15th. I don't have his new ship/division information yet so I cant write any letters at this time. My heart breaks for him. I know he is disappointed in himself. I really wish I could talk to him and tell him how proud I am of him.
