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."

Join the group, PIR 05/25/2012 TG 28 — 7 Divisions (157–162 & 928), to connect with others with loved ones training with your SR. You may also want to join, or at least check out, Girlfriends, Fiances,and Wives of Sailors, Boot Camp Mom's, PIR Reference Information, and New Members Stop Here. Most Sailors go home after A School Graduation for a couple of weeks. What rating (job) is your boyfriend going to have? Go to Ratings, A School Locations, and Links to Groups and click on the Attachment and locate the rating and then you can see if there is a group for it and join the one/s that best seem to meet your needs. Those in those groups can give you more info on what to expect after BC. Knowing his rating will also help you to plan for his Liberty on PIR weekend. Those staying at GL for A School check in and then have Liberty the rest of the day and have daytime Liberty all weekend. Those flying out to A School have Liberty from about 10:35 until evening and then usually fly out the next day, but you can meet your Sailor at the airport and spend time with him there until flight time.
