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 as of 11/10/2022 PIR vaccination is no longer required.

**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).

Comment by Cody'smom on October 17, 2013 at 1:47pm
Is he at Belle Chasse? I'm not that far. Let me know if I can help.
Comment by TJCsMom on October 16, 2013 at 4:20pm
I am in Baton Rouge....about 70 miles from New Orleans. Is he in need of something? What base is he on?
Comment by belovedbyHim on October 15, 2013 at 10:12pm

Navy Moms-- I'm posting this on all the pages I'm a part of.  A Navy mom on FB needs our help.  Her son is stationed in New Orleans. Due to the Shut Down he is largely alone since his base is mostly reservists.  I'm hoping to connect her with some Navy mom's in the New Orleans area.  Please message me and I'll pass on your info to her.

Comment by AnnfromLouisiana on September 16, 2013 at 4:08pm
So true. It really hits close to home. Had to send a text to my son even though he's 150 miles away from there just to say I was thinking about him. Prayers to everyone involved.
