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.

where do i get the form to adopt for Christmas

Ok, lemonelephant told me to look for a form and I noticed that another person said the SR has to fill it out and send it to us, but we are so far away I am thinking my daughter is not sending to us because she knows we will be up within 2 weeks for the PIR. So am I to understand that Adopt a sailor is for her own family is to do this otherwise she will be available to another family close by to have the opportunity to be adopted? And does the family come get them and take them off base? Can they designate a specific family to do so? If so I have family close by that I can come get her for that. Hope she does send me the letter or form but if she doesn't is there anything we can do?

Glad you found the does have most of the info you need. The rest of the details come in the Adopt a Sailor form that the Recruit sends home.
