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."

Follow this link for OPSEC Guidelines:



**UPDATE 4/26/2022** Effective with the May 6, 2022 PIR 4 guests will be allowed.  Still must be fully vaccinated to attend.

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).  

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. New to the group. My son is on DEP, not leaving until August. He's taking his PFT on March 30th to become a Rescue and Recovery swimmer, hopefully. I'm here for support and information.

My son Caleb left for BC on the 19th. I miss him so much, but I'm sure he is fine. I was lucky because I stayed the night before swearing in at the same hotel and took him out for a good dinner. His call home was only 17 seconds long though. 3 weeks to his next call.

Jeter's Mom that has to be harder on you than anything. I remember dropping Kate off for MEPS in Boston, I thought I was gonna die! I can't imagine a delay, the extra few days, as nice as it seems, the waiting.... I am home, unable to work due to an accident, feel free to contact me if you need an ear. I am home, will watch for your updates. God put me in a place I could finally support others. I hurt so bad over my daughter being gone, yet it is good, we have done our job, to raise them right and send them on their way. I am here and always will be for you or any other Moms that are hurting while transitioning from one stage of motherhood to another.

"So my son was sworn in on Wednesday in Portland Maine with in about 3 hours we were on our way home with him. All flights from Meps were canceled due to the artic vortex.  So he is home with us until Sunday when his recruiter will pick him up and bring him back to Portland anyone else in the same boat? Hoping he has someone to fly out with.

AuntieJ she is AO. Through her I have been able to put her in touch with some great girls to work with for schooling, and will help lead her. She's a little lost right now, her dad passed away unexpectedly while she was at boot camp, so she is struggling with grieving and being away from home.

Jeter's Mom, Congrads to your son! Please contact me if you need any support. My daughter went to boot camp last September and is now waiting on A school in Pensacola. I can say those 8 weeks of boot camp were really hard on me. I never thought Id survive it, she was my last one to leave home. I had no one to reach out to close by that understood what I felt. Please know I am here!
