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."

Please note! Changes to this guide happened in October 2017. There are now tickets issued, and there are no longer parking passes for PIR.

Please see changes to attending PIR in the PAGES column. The PAGES are located under the member icons on the right side.

Phone call was 2 seconds. I know she had to stay up for a very long time. They did not get there until midnight. Thinking in distress, how long did she have to go without sleep, and wondering what was happening. I YouTube boot camp and said to myself, thank God she was in the ROTC Program in high school. She went in as an E3. Can't wait to get the mailing address and counting the weeks to go see her graduation. Miss her so very much!

It’s the slowest...fastest 10 weeks I’ve ever been through lol..he graduates on Friday and I’m like dang that was fast!

Hello and congratulations to your daughter and your family, my son left for RTC the same day as your daughter  I sent him a few letters on Sandboxx, not sure if he’s receiving it but I’m sending it anyways .

You might be looking at a 9/13/19 PIR date.  Although it could go a week either way!  Your form letter should be arriving anywhere from 9-14 business days after she got there.  Keep your phone handy, but remember, no news is good news!

Hang in there!

I think her graduation date is 9-20 because she does not turn 18 until 9-14. I'm still trying to figure this site out. Where to go, where to post, and hopefully find mom's that have same boot camp date.
