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.

**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).  

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.


RTC Graduation

**UPDATE 6/23/2022 - MASK MANDATE IS LIFTED -  Vaccinations still required



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.

Hey everyone. I am so glad to have found this group. I just found out my husband will be deployed soon, and we will be going through our first deployment together. Any pointers would be great!

Im new to all of this so I have no idea how the whole "ombudsmen" thing works... What exactly are they there for and how do they get ahold of me or viceversa?
Comment by TRat829 on April 12, 2010 at 4:26am
does anyone have advice as to what is the BEST way to talk to my husband whenever he may get the chance while on deployment. I have heard we should get him a phone card but I wasn't sure of any other/all ways that are possible
Comment by TRat829 on April 12, 2010 at 4:24am
Pamela, OPSEC wasnt really the problem but more a deciding factor. I guess it was just being used way too much and getting out of hand.
Comment by TRat829 on April 12, 2010 at 4:23am
Early deployment? What is this? gotta ask my husband. idk if he has heard about that. let me know what you hear please.

Good evening Ladies and Gents. I am actually a Marine wife and my husband is joining your Navy boys for this deployment. I was hoping to connect and bond with this branch during these next long months. :)

Oh also, He told me that facebook had been secured on the ship. I am not sure if that goes for all 3 ships or just the pearl harbor. So no contact through facebook = ( Its so much easier than email. lol.

My husband is on the USS pearl harbor and is an IT. He has a personal email address but I am not sure how often He can email me back. 7 months without talking is going to be a lot harder than 8 weeks was for BC. This is our first deployment so I am nervous and unsure of everything.
