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 daughter graduates boot camp Friday. She is asking me to bring several items when I come up for PIR. The directions say she can't return to base with anything extra. However, her A school is on base. She will move buildings right after graduation, before she leaves on Liberty. Some insight on what she can take back on base after Liberty would be greatly appreciated! Of course, her phone tops the list of items to bring!

Yes, it is true that she can't take anything back to the RTC, but when you give her her things she will have moved to the TSC side on the main part of the base across the street and can have things there. See the info in PIR Day and Liberty during PIR Weekend to help you know how to plan your weekend and how that works when she moves from the RTC side across the street to the TSC side.

She will only have so much space. Laptop, phone. I am taking my son some of his own boxer briefs, and some long johns to wear under uniform. They won't be able to wear their own clothes for a while til they earn it.

She has asked for her phone, socks, sports bras, icy hot, art paper and colored pencils and some candy... I'm going to pack what I can. After that I can ship what she can have, when she can have it, and if she has space. I'm just so excited to see her, I hope I don't forget anything!

My daughter is PIR on the 22nd too.  She asked for her undies too!  Can't wait to see her!
