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 Katski - Our daughter was not injured or delayed, but she spent a lot of time in Great Lakes with boot camp and then lots of schooling. She had many similar struggles with your sailor in that she was the youngest, all her friends went out drinking, and she's had quite a few frustrating roommates. I say all this just to give you and your daughter some hope - this stage she is in won't last forever, even if it feels like it already been forever. Our daughter took advantage of the music rooms, and would even head over there to read a book. Visiting her next month will be wonderful for both of you! I'm sure you can find less mobile activities in and around Chicago. Don't forget all the discounts and freebies she gets on some museums and activities. Praying for you guys!

Hey ... heading to see my girl first weekend in April... she has been down  waiting still to get clear for her hip...says it still hurts and worrying quite a bit... someone mentioned that they will maybe just send home but she does not want that at was caused at basic and she wants to stay... her roommate is okay she says but almost 10 yr age diff, told her she can't turn on fan, kinda rules over her my girl is younger and can't hang with others as she says lots of them go drinking.. she seems sad when we talk..which of course worries me..

Can't imagine the pain she was going through on a hip fracture!!  I know she looks upon this as a set back but let her know it really isn't!!!  She just needs to take the time to get this healed up so she doesn't have problems with it 20 years down the road!!!!  She should not have to worry about loosing her job or her spot in school.  As long as this wasn't some pre-existing condition, she won't get sent home.  This was caused by her time in the Navy so they will let her heal and then continue on her career path!!  Tell her to keep her spirits up!!!!

My girl had started class only in for  couple of days and on a 30 day hold as she had been in some pain right before her final pft at basic and pushed thru and passed and was able to graduate 2/8...we had notice a little limp at graduation and figured since her feet were so bad and they thought she pulled a groin muscle..but no one really checked it out til a week ago and she has hip fracture... .. no surgery and to get checked out at the end of this month to see if she can re start classes... not sure since she pushed thru pft and been marching, pt, walking on it for almost 4 1/2 was that only a few weeks to see if healed it gonna clear her...she is really scared and unsure of what will happen..could they reassign her job?   To go thru basic push thru this she does not want sent home... she is getting a little down...and doesn't help not made too many friends as she can't do everything, but yet she has been doing watch duty... just concerned for her, she is bummed

Azula I watched my daughter over and over on 4 graduations. She was set back due to failing the final run but still performed in the graduations before hers. It was a blessing for me and I never missed a graduation viewing. Plan to watch again next week!
Comment by Roberta on March 8, 2019 at 5:44pm

Azul, you will see your recruit perform in the 2 graduations prior to their own graduation on 22nd

Comment by azul on March 8, 2019 at 5:37pm

Hello everyone!

Thank you for allow me to be part of this group, my daughter PIR is march 22, But I'm sure I saw her on the PIR video this morning, She is part of the 920 division, and she is part of the flag groups, I thought she will do that only on her PIR but I just saw her on the event today, is that possible, am I dreaming... OMG I'm so happy but I just want to make sure is not an illusion, but I'm sure is her, anyone know anything do they do different PIR when they are in charge of the flags??

Thanks for any answer and always grateful for your kind support 

Have an amazing weekend everyone, and congratulations to the amazing sailors that. graduate today and their proud families.
