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.

My son left last Thursday, April 27. Feeling lost. Probably because he's our youngest and last one out of the house.

Lorri, I understand totally.  My youngest son left on April 25, we received his box and his form letter yesterday, he is in Ship 14, DIV 191 and his PIR date is June 16.

We're from Ohio too. If your son left 2 days before mine, could they possibly be in the same DIV?
I have no idea how that works.....

My son left Wednesday, April 26 (CA) missing him so much! (Even though I still have two at home.) I have been researching this site and Navydep? a bit to see what he's doing each day- P days should be over for him today- unless he is on P-hold. Wake up praying for him each day and go to bed praying for him as well. I check the weather in Great Lakes daily to see what he is marching in- rain yesterday. We should know our boys DIV soon! We received two phone calls from him on the 26th- One from the airport to let us know he arrived and another just before midnight- he was clearly reading a script. (Did either of you experience this? )We got his box today. No letter yet, but anxiously awaiting

My son left on 4/27 - and honestly don't know how I will get through the next 7 weeks!  Although he was away at school, we spoke or texted almost everyday.  I go nowhere without my phone and rush home to check the mailbox.  I wake up thinking about him and go to sleep praying for him.
