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."

Follow this link for OPSEC Guidelines:



**UPDATE 4/26/2022** Effective with the May 6, 2022 PIR 4 guests will be allowed.  Still must be fully vaccinated to attend.

**UPDATE 7/29/2021** You now must be fully vaccinated in order to attend PIR:

In light of observed changes and impact of the Coronavirus Delta Variant and out of an abundance of caution for our recruits, Sailors, staff, and guests, Recruit Training Command is restricting Pass-in-Review (recruit graduation) to ONLY fully immunized guests (14-days post final COVID vaccination dose).  

Specific information on this policy change will be provided in the coming days and weeks.

We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience and appreciate your support.


RTC Graduation

**UPDATE 6/23/2022 - MASK MANDATE IS LIFTED -  Vaccinations still required

Sunday Feb. 10th 6:30 Navy Mom gathering.  PM me if you are interested, I will send you the address in Gilbert.  We are meeting at my house vs. AJ's for now.  

Hope to see some new Moms!

Our monthly gatherings are social.  Blue Star Mothers chapter was mostly business (fund raising to purchase items to send care package, help a Sailor or his family with financial problems etc.) but we did have a good time working together.

I will send you a friend request then we can talk more openly on Private Messaging.

So your monthly get togethers are in place of this Blue Star. I want to go but Sunday's are not good for me, someday. 

Comment by Navy Mom (J) on January 22, 2019 at 11:12pm

Kbpoohbear, no there is not a chapter in those areas.  The 2 I know of is the one in Maricopa, President is Tracy.  Also, the Southwest Valley Chapter meets in Glendale and their President is Theresa Koontz.  Both great ladies.  We had the east valley chapter but suspended it due to lack of membership, sadly.  That is why we meet for a coffee gathering the 1st Sunday of the month unless it is a special Sunday.  Such as this year Feb. 3 is Superbowl so we are meeting the following Sunday the 10th.  

Comment by Kbpoohbear on January 22, 2019 at 5:33pm

I was looking into the Blue Star group but I can't find a chapter in the Mesa Arizona Area. Does anyone know if there is one  in Mesa or Apache Junction?

Comment by Navy Mom (J) on January 4, 2019 at 7:52pm

We will be meeting at my house Sunday evening due to predicted rain and cooler temps.  Please send me a private message if you would like my address in Gilbert.  Would love to have any of you come join the group!  We meet at 6:30pm.

Comment by Navy Mom (J) on January 3, 2019 at 3:37pm

Well the luncheon did not get off the ground.  But we did do a Challege Coin Craft making day at my house.  AZ Navy moms join the "Proud Navy Moms of AZ, just like any Navy Moms only a lot Cooler" group and you will see all the events there.  It is managed by Sarah Clyne and Marcy Tankersly Scott.  Lots of fun!  This Sunday is the monthly Navy Mom coffee at AJ's Fine Foods at 6:30 on the patio.  If you are in the area and want to meet other Navy moms please come!

Comment by Navy Mom (J) on November 12, 2018 at 3:36pm

An Arizona Navy Mom luncheon for all is being planned for mid December.  I will send more info when the exact details are confirmed.  Hope all moms from all over the state can come and  meet!!
