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.

Thanks Tenn Navy Mom!

RN Mom there use to be a official FMTB East Facebook page. The Military did away with that page. On Navy For Moms this is the official group.
There is a closed FMTB East Sailors and Friends Facebook page.

Here is the link

My Corpsman was at FMTB East in 2011.My Son is still stationed at Camp Lejeune with the Marines. If you have questions I can try and answer them.

Hello! I'm trying to find an active group. My son was just picked up for FMTB, and I can't find a group that actively engages on a regular basis. Anybody have tips? Thanks! And thanks to all the Veterans out there  who have served our nation.

Today I pay tribute to the 2 Navy Corpsman and 7 Marines that were KIA during my Son's deployment to Afghanistan in 2011.Remebering all Men and Women that have given their lives serving in the Military so that we may enjoy the freedom we have in our Country. Never forgetting these Fallen Heroes.

Welcome Matthewsmom!  That’s great to hear.  Good for him! 

Comment by Matthewsmom on April 18, 2018 at 12:57am
My son just arrived last Tuesday from San Antonio! He is loving it! This is most relaxed and happy I have heard him. I can't wait to have him home after his 8 weeks!!
Comment by Marcy ~ Corpsman Mom on April 11, 2018 at 1:47pm

Welcome Susie!  My son is like many corpsmen I know - they enjoyed FMTB and would do it again.  Even though it’s tough!  As long as he’s in shape, which I assume he is since he’s coming from SA, he’ll do great.  You can see what he will be studying and follow along at the official FMTB-E site.  Where will his first duty station be after Field Med?

Hello~ my son just arrived on Monday from San Antonio. Looking forward to learning about his trading and experience and connecting with other parents

Happy Thanksgiving Ladies. I know so many of us will not be with our Sailors this Thanksgiving. It never gets easier being a Navy Mom....you just become stronger.
Hugs and prayers across the miles for those Navy Moms that need them.
