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. Tickets are now issued for all guests, and all guests must have a ticket to enter base. A separate parking pass is no longer needed to drive on to base for parking.

Please see changes to attending PIR in the PAGES column. The PAGES are located under the member icons on the right side.

My daughter was due to graduate this Friday 2/2/18 I received a call from her last night that she failed her final PFA and was moved to another 900 division and was set back 4 weeks now with a graduation of 3/2/18. She was devastated and crying so hard. I tried my best to assure her everything will work out. I felt helpless. What does this entail for her? Will she still be in the ceremony on March 2. I have read conflicting info and am looking for guidance. We already rescheduled all are reservations. Any info would be appreciated. Thank you

Since she has been ASMO'd to a division in a later TG with a PIR date, then she is expected to be able to have PIR on that date.

There is info in Physical Fitness Assessment (PFA) and Fitness Improvement Training (FIT) for you. 

I left info for you on your My Page.

My son was due to graduate on 1/26 but called a week prior to his graduation to say that he did not pass PRT and was set back to graduate on 3/2. He was very upset as well. I immediately started sending him cards and letters of encouragement. I heard from my son on last night and he stated that he had bronchitis and that was the reason he did not pass. He has been given antibiotics and he is doing so much better. He is working out and he stated that his running is so much better now. A word of encouragement, she will be fine. Just a minor set back...I hope this info helps.   

JayBNavyMom, I left info for you on your My Page.

Maureen I am so sorry to here this, There are times us as Mothers will feel helpless because we want to be able to pick up Our Sons/Daughters and make things right. Know that she will be fine and they will work with her to pass, please let her know we are all beside her and routing for her. To continue to stay focused and determined, let her know the Lord is right beside her every step of the way. when you speak to her next time find a prayer to pray over the phone to her or scriptures. She will be fine and she will make her way. Praying for you also.

For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans to prosper you and not harm you, plans to give you hope and future. Jeremiah 29:11 Amen

Thank you ladies for your info and words of encouragement and prayers!
