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.

Congratulations CheriH to your son and your family! Huge accomplishment and a lot of work to get there!

Congrats CheriH .  My nephew went through ten years ago.  Top Gun may be on the horizon for my son. 

Comment by CheriH on August 20, 2019 at 12:31am

And he did it!  Graduated from Topgun last week.  13 weeks of non stop flying and studying.  He loved it!  He is finally back home with his wife and son.  Best news for me...they are coming to visit during their leave time!  We will have all kids and grandkids together for 5 days.  Pure heaven!

Andy'sMom,

Cool! Yes, please pass on more information after you attend the ceremony. Good luck to your son! Have fun visiting with him!

redheadlass, 

Good luck to your son.  Corpus is a fun place.  A bit humid and full of interesting weather!  I will have more info on what it actually is when we get back, but from what I've gathered, after a SNA's first solo, they have a ceremony and cut off a part of a tie to symbolize that they are no longer "tied" to their on-wing, or to the ground.

Andy's MoM: My son will be headed to Corpus in a few weeks to begin Primary. What is the 'tie cutting" and at what point in the training does that occur? Congrats to your son!

Congrats to you and your DS, Suzie!  Prayers that the roller coaster ride is over and that you are on top now!

My DS is in Primary in Corpus and is having his tie cutting on Friday!  My husband and I are heading out to be there too!

Comment by Allison on July 13, 2019 at 9:45am

Wonderful news Suzie! So happy for your son and your family!
