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. Tickets are now issued for all guests, and all guests must have a ticket to enter base. A separate parking pass is no longer needed to drive on to base for parking.

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

Hi. I just joined last night. I wanted to introduce myself. I’m linda. My boyfriend is in Great Lakes now for basic training ship 02 Div 950. Then after graduation he immediately ships off to A school in SC. This is all extremely new to me and his mother. I’m likely going to have a lot of questions in the future so bear with me.

If he's going to SC, there's only one program there.  My nephew went through it and is currently an instructor up in New York.  

Do you know if your boyfriend has volunteered for subs or not?

Hi Linda, my boyfriend is also on ship 2 div 950, after BC he is going to A school also on SC. This website has been really helpfull, the sisters of my boyfriend and myself are just so lost on the whole process. Did you already got the Form letter?

Are you both in the bootcamp moms group?  It is very active and informative, and is for all loved ones, not just moms.
