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."

here is the link to your PIR group, that is where you'll find everyone who PIR's on 12/22
My boyfriend too! Ship 04 Div 801 I'm so excited!!! I can't wait to see him again. I've gotten 3 phone calls. He's leading his division so I know they earn those base on performance so
He pushes the guys! He will be transferred to Pensacola right after but he is taking leave time so we can spend the holidays together. He'll have to report on Jan. 04th. This is such a big thing! 
Lots of missing him and not being able to talk to him everyday is the worst part. I write letters everyday!!! He asked me to and said not to stop even if it was a tint note or a picture! They die to get
the mail everyday! He said it's very cold and his last letter he said it snowed. They got their uniforms already! I'm sorry I'm just so excited I can actually share all this with someone from the same 
date. I hope your son/daughter is doing great too
Hi my son is Ship o3 Div 031 can't wait. Did you get a confirmation email on travel route. We are driving & had to email map quest so far I've had to do it two times. My son called this past Sat & said they haven't received it, don't know what to do.
Why don't you send it to him on a letter? I send my boyfriend letters everyday and if you put it as PRIORITY MAIL $4.90 he'll get it the 2nd day. Enclose an envelope with one of thisPostage too and you'll receive his letter faster as well
