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.

I have a question regarding Battle Stations. There are so many people with different opinions it gets frustrating reading it all. I don’t want specific dates BUT want to know - will ANY of the divisions that are graduating on 01 Nov start BS before Sunday? I am sure that I saw a post that said they would start on either Sun or Mon. I’m not expecting my I’m a Sailor call until at least Wed but some are setting their hopes on receiving them this week. This week the calls would be from the SRs in PIR for this Friday, correct?

I'm not an expert but I would expect the I'm a Sailor calls THIS week for the PIR on this Friday - the following week is when I would expect the calls for the following Friday.

Basing this on my experience when my sailor had PIR back in 2016 - we were already on the road to Chicago when we got the call - Wednesday, I think for a Friday PIR

That’s what I thought too. Some days I have to stop reading posts on fb because I get so frustrated with incorrect info and false hopes. I’m leaving Thursday morning so I’m hoping to get my son’s call on Wed lol

Will you be able to attend Sarge's Meet N Greet?  It's on Thursday night - definitely worth attending if you are able.  You do need to RSVP for it.

NavyMom9519 Yes those will have PIR this Friday will receive calls this week, they can start calling the Friday before but usually the week of PIR.

Hi NavyMom9519 - the best place to get answers regarding BS for your group is in your PIR group.  And you should have the call by Wednesday of your PIR week.  Here's the link:
