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 all - Happy Monday!  I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend.  

Love the picture Rose!  Foreshadowing for sure lol. 

I see you and ShellyMarie both joined the boot camp group - that will give you the best information for the next 8 or 9 weeks.  And once you get the official form letter be sure to join your PIR group.  You'll find plenty of moms (and even a few dads) on here that can answer questions for you - don't be afraid to ask!  We've been in your shoes ;-D

Comment by Rose of OH on Saturday

Thank you for putting out the welcome mat!

I am thrilled to have found this group. Neither my husband nor I have had service members in our immediate families, so all of this is very new to us.

Our son is home today and tomorrow before we head to Chicago on Monday and turn him over to the Navy at 2 p.m. I've done a lot of reading in these forums already, but now it's time to concentrate on him!

My profile pic is Eric at Halloween when he had just turned 4 years old. He was "Sailor Jack" of Cracker Jack fame (complete with his little dog Bingo)! Foreshadowing? Apparently!

Anyway, I look forward to getting to know you, especially Nuke moms from the recruit training class that starts 7/23/2019. (Pretty sure that's not how the military expresses dates--I have a LOT to learn!)

Thank you for the warm welcome!  I'm so grateful I can be part of this group!

I forgot my RED today, but my son has his on. I was dressing for our hot weather and moving things in and out of the house. Nothing like trying to replace our hot water heater on one of our hottest days of the year so far!! Plus a computer desk and a few other things.

Welcome to our Nuke Mom's Group RoseofOH!!
