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.

Hi Pat, Nukes get their orders during the end of Prototype, not Power School.  My daughter got her soft orders (meaning they could change) about a month out.  Her hard orders were issued maybe 2 weeks before expected graduation (about the time she got her last sign off if I remember correctly).  On the other hand, her husband, also a Nuke didn't get his until much later.  Fortunately her orders told them where they were going :)  LOVE the Navy's sense of order...

I think I received my answers about COMPS and BOARDS. Any suggestions on Power School graduation gifts or where to shop online? Thank you so much for getting back with me. This is my granddaughter.
Comment by Pat on Monday
I do have another question. Someone said after graduation they get their orders... is that after Power School graduation? How could it be? They haven’t graduated Prototype yet!!!
Comment by JayDee659 on Monday

Pat, I have your answer, please PM me.  I've sent you a friend request.

In case anyone could use a little laugh my daughter told me that some of the boys in her brother division at RTC lake some common sense.

Comment by Molly's Proud Mom on Monday

Kari! That's wonderful news. I'm so happy for her. What a nice start to her next adventure. :))
