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.

God bless our sailors, God bless ALL Navy families.  Merry Christmas to all and Happy New Year!  Our sailors may or may not be home for Christmas, but they are always in our hearts!

Dec 7, 2013, USS Nimitz Tiger Cruise....what a show!

Comment by Christine-OS2 proud mom on December 8, 2013 at 12:53pm

Looking at the forecast, looks like they'll have a lot of rain on the trip up. :-(  But I'm sure they'll have plenty of things to do for the experience.  Fair winds and following seas.  Days away!

My Eagle Scout is also on that ship headed to San Diego along with his Tiger - another Eagle Scout. His Tiger recently enlisted and goes to boot camp in February. This will be an eye-opening experience. Wish them all safe travels, thank God they're almost home.

He's on his way......they left Hawaii today!  Getting very excited for homecoming!

Comment by Christine-OS2 proud mom on December 1, 2013 at 1:19pm

Since we went to friends for Thanksgiving we don't have any "left overs"  I got lucky and just had to make deserts.  So while I made a couple extra pies for around our house my family made the comment that they wanted turkey sandwiches, enchiladas, noodle soup, etc.  Today instead of making my usual southern fried chicken dinner, you got it, I'm making turkey dinner with all the trimmings.  My youngest son and his girlfriend have to work later this afternoon, so we're going to have early dinner.  Now we'll have turkey day left overs.

My sailor will be back stateside in time for his first wedding anniversary!  YEAH, these kids have been separated almost 10 of their first 12 months together!  Now they can start their marriage.

Got my flights booked for homecoming!
