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."

Follow this link for OPSEC Guidelines:



**UPDATE 4/26/2022** Effective with the May 6, 2022 PIR 4 guests will be allowed.  Still must be fully vaccinated to attend.

In light of observed changes and impact of the Coronavirus Delta Variant and out of an abundance of caution for our recruits, Sailors, staff, and guests, Recruit Training Command is restricting Pass-in-Review (recruit graduation) to ONLY fully immunized guests (14-days post final COVID vaccination dose).  

Specific information on this policy change will be provided in the coming days and weeks.

We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience and appreciate your support.

Comment by Susan mom to Niko on November 30, 2012 at 5:31pm

Hey all hate to do this but I am canceling my attendance tomorrow...  I have been sick for the last week with a cold~ flu that is just hanging on...  half my office is out with it.  I really do not want to pass it on to any of you!!  Feel free to meet if you want otherwise how about meeting next week??  Anyone??

Comment by Susan mom to Niko on November 30, 2012 at 5:30pm

Hey there...  we try to meet in a central location to give those from the north and south equal distance to drive...  last time was in Southcenter...  next time probably back toward the north in Alderwood??

Comment by GFTatter on November 30, 2012 at 1:28am

Well, too many things to do before she leaves, so I won't be there. But I look forward to meeting you all some other time. Do you ever do a north end lunch?

Comment by Susan mom to Niko on November 28, 2012 at 3:08pm

T'was just weeks until Christmas and all thru the land, 

navy moms, dads and others were planning to band,

together for lunch to visit and chat,

support one another with hugs, this and that!

The table was set for as many as would

make the trip out from their part of the 'hood'!

They each brought a picture of their sailor love

so we could all see who they are so proud of!

Along with that they brought a small gift

less than $10 to trade for a lift!

Can't wait to see all that will gather

No other place that day would i rather!

I take my daughter to Bremerton the next day, but I would LOVE to meet you all. Are Dads welcome too? Maybe my DD will spend that day with her boyfriend. Gotta call work now and beg off! Thanks for organizing this Susan.
