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.

Every time the pictures come out from the Navy Recruit Training Command I frantacially look over each picture zooming in and out to see if I find our son. Last night after we had opened presents, eaten a delcious meal and were all settling down I started my routine of looking through the pictures. (I had looked earlier in the morning but my husband had said there were knew ones.) As I went through them one by one seeing some of the recruits smiling, some very serious and others looking like they weren't sure what was going saw it! I SAW HIM!! I started screaming "that's him!" Everyone rushed to the computer to verify. It was him! We were all so excited, relieved, happy to name a few. He looked good! He probably hates that we all saw him with his bald head and glasses...especially his brothers. We are now even more excited to see him at PIR!

I didn't even recognize my own child at first.. Me and my daughter searched every fface of all 600 pics... I was so disappointed Xmas day, two days later, this pic of a young man kind of off to the side with his hat pulled over his eyes caught my attention because of the way he stood, when I zoomed in on him I couldn't contain my scream and my sobs of pure relief and joy seeing my baby boy, now looking so grown up in uniform..the best gift any mom could wish for, even if it was two days late...

Many of us have stories of not recognizing our Sailor or identifying another Sailor as our own. They really do look alike when in uniform.

Love the stories of when we see our children. They do all look alike!
