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."

Events

**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).  Still limited to 2 guests maximum.

Specific information on this policy change will be provided in the coming days and weeks.

We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience and appreciate your support.

Hello Ladies,
I also have a son in the selective reserves....whatever that means?? He is presently in GL attending corpsman school and slated to graduate in Nov. From what he understands from processing/classification on Wed. he is to finish A school and then will come home to do his weekends and summers. It is not in his contract to do the marine training as he thought so I guess unless the military can change his contract he won't be deployed. He was a little disappointed but is glad to be able to rejoin his family that misses him terribly. He plans on starting college in the spring unless the Navy has some other plans for him. I have mixed emotions about all of this but I am thrilled to have him coming home. Does anyone have a similar situation? I would love to hear about it.

hi all, just reading all the comments below,first and foremost....YOur sons daughters are awesome.JUst for have the foresight to join during this times.
Ok..here I go..
My son is a reserve but in a program.{TAR} which is now FTS...TAR stands for total active reserves, don't ask me to remember what the heck FTS stands for..I will have to go and research..Basically....Shawn{my son-not obviously enough from my screen name -right} gets all benefits of an "fully activite" sailor but will remain "stateside" Shawn has no desire to be "stationed" overseas, ex: Japan-/Anyway....don't ask me cause I do not see much difference, see shawn is going on an 8 month deployment in Oct, and his first child is due in Dec.

Anyway enough of my self pity...I love reading everyones stories...
what a great group...
Thanks
