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."

Help!  Looking for a hotel during PIR early February. 

Would like to be close by the Naval Station, comfy, clean, free breakfast and possibly walking distance to restaurants.

Any suggestions?

The discussion, Recommended Places to Stay, within PIR Reference Information may give you some ideas.

I see you have joined the group for your PIR date; you may also want to join, or at least check out, Boot Camp Moms (and loved ones) and New Members Stop Here. There will be a lot of great information and support for you in those groups as well as in the PIR group. Be sure to check out the Pages (found under the pictures of the Members) and Discussions within all of the groups.

(Group names and the name of the discussion within this reply are clickable links.) 

Still looking for a hotel recommendation from someone who has been.  Want to find a Hotel walking distance to restaurants as we are not renting a car.  any suggestions?

 

 

You might get a better response in the PIR forum instead of General Discussion.  Also check the blogs, there's some PIR stuff posted there.

 We stayed at Americas best value inn in waukegan they have shuttle to PIR and back a continentle breakfeat..about a 5- 10 min walk to gojo's 24 hr place it was good, white castle DD and a pizza place across the street(they deliver too) we got a room for 48 a night. it was clean quiet and friendly..it has a small fridge, microwave etc. its about 4 miles from the navy base we had no problems at all and no complaints about the place.

We are staying at the Ramada in Waukegan

If you don't have a rental car, you need to check out one of the places with a shuttle. That knocks out the Navy Lodge. I believe Waukegan was close to some places to eat. Book early.

We stayed at Residence Inn back in May for PIR and loved it. They have a shuttle for graduation also.
