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."

You may want to join, or at least check out, Boot Camp Moms, PIR Reference Information, and New Members Stop Here.

Hello, my son also left on the 4th and I just received a letter from him (he actually wrote)......a week ago I received the one that gave me all the info about the graduation. Have you received the official one with all the imp. info?? The one that gives you the address you will need to write to her? If you have not received anything, than I would suggest calling her recruiter (at least he/she will give you some info).

Dm, Since you know the PIR date, please join the group for his TG.  It should either be PIR 02/01/2013 TG 12 - 15 Divisions (077-088, 804, 805 and 912) or PIR 01/25/2013 TG 11 - 9 Divisions (069-076 and 911), but if it is something else, usse the link above to find the group.  Do join the groups I mentioned above for there will be lots of great info and support for you.

Thank you lemonelephant for the recommendation, I did join them and it has been very helpful!!
It sure has answered many of my questions and eased most of my worries. Thanks

You are very welcome.

Hi, I'm sorry that I am now just getting back to you on this. Yes I have been writing to my daughter. I don't think that she will be graduating with her division. She is having problems with swimming. I think that they will hold her back :(
