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."

Will my sailors sibling be allowed at Graduation if he has a warrant for an old traffic ticket

Will my sailors brother be allowed at her Graduation if he has a warrant for an old traffic ticket?  We just found out about it and are not able to take care of it before her graduation.  It will break her heart if he isn't allowed.

Hi Sarah - based on 1a on the visitor access form it does state that:"SR can not knowingly request a visitor that has an outstanding warrant". Here is the form for you to look at: 

Visitor Access Form

Worst case your son can go to Chicago but won't be able to get on base for the PIR.  Your daughter could see him afterwards.  I know that's not what you want but that might be how it works.

Post your question in the boot camp group - I left the link in the welcome message on your page - and maybe someone will have a more definitive answer.  Also try posting in your PIR group.

Good luck.

Thank you so much.  I wasn't sure where to post my question.  I already sent the form before we knew.  Maybe they will notify me or my sailor before then. But yes, you're right, at least they would get to see each other, even if he can't attend PIR. 

Thanks again!

Hopefully it works out and maybe for some reason a traffic warrant won't count towards this.  We'll keep our fingers crossed - and keep us posted!

What is her scheduled PIR date?

Yes!  That would be great!   

Her PIR date is March 6th.  I am sooooooooo proud of her.  She is RCPO of her unit! She is just 18.  <3

Sorry, I think it is her division, not unit.  I'm new to all of this.  I have only received a couple of letters because she is so busy.  She is also in a 900 division so they have to learn something for the graduation ceremony.   (If I understood her correctly)  

Here's the link to her PIR group - click on it and request to join.  My son was also in a 900 division.  They will perform at 2 PIR's prior to theirs too.

PIR March 6, 2020

And here's the link to the 900's Division group - it will give you a little more info about what they do in this division:

I have all kinds of groups for you to join!  Here's the Moms of Daughters group:

Great!!!  Thank you so much!
