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.

Hello.  New Navy mom who will have OCS graduate in couple weeks.  I wanted to have flag flown on USS Constitution for his graduation but am not getting a response from their flag department.  Has anyone in the group done? Thanks!

Congrats redheadlass, and also to your new Ensign! 

Now the adventure begins.  Anchors aweigh!

Thanks, everyone! My son is a SNA so he will be going back to his residence where he lived prior to beginning OCS, for 3 months doing OHARP, then he will have to report to Pensacola in December.

My son just graduated from OCS two days ago.  Just wanted to say hello to the group.  

Comment by MJoe on September 4, 2018 at 5:08pm


There is a Facebook page - search for OCS 03-19 and a few options will show up, I am sure of it!  Also look for the Officer Training Command Newport page, as that is where any photos will be posted.

My granddaughter reported to OCS on 2 Sept.  Do any of you know if a FB page has been set up for class 03-19?

Thanks so much!

The color of the envelope may not be a problem, but do NOT send any musical cards, or big, fat envelopes that look like they could have contraband in them.  We were told you don't want to send any mail that would catch the attention of the Drill Instructor, and therefore single out your candidate for the DI to harass.

Comment by CindyN on August 18, 2018 at 7:31pm

meadow - I completely agree with jsefamily's advice on OCS: When you learn new instructions/rules, try to follow them but don't stress about it if you mess up. I messed up how I was addressing my letters for several weeks. My son mentioned it when he got phone privileges after week 6 but said it was not a big deal as no one cared.  The candidates are the ones who collect the mail from the mailroom and distribute it. They all look out for each other. So If you happened to have already sent a birthday card in say a blue envelope, have a glass of wine and notice the world is still turning the same direction it was before the error. To lower your stress level, send future letters in white envelopes.
