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. 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.

My son is in this group also. My husband and I are very excited to see him graduate and to meet all the other SR's parents. Very exciting time!

It is very exciting. I am so proud of my husband. Do you know what A school your son is going to after boot camp and what his job will be?

He is going to Pensacola, FL for air crew.

My husband is going to San Antonio for Hospital Corpsman. I bet they are going to LOVE being somewhere warm!

My boyfriend is in this ship/division...
I can't believe he's been gone over a week already.
I hope I can get to know some of you, maybe we can meet up at graduation~

welcome Almyraia! I look forward to getting to know you as well! Maybe we can sit next to each other!

Ship 09, Div 045 Hospital Corpsman.  I can't wait to see my son!  I'm so proud of him.  We're from Newnan GA.  Anyone else from close by?

Welcome joemama! i guess our recruits will be spending lots of time together!

We're in southern California. We got the box, 2 letters, and the phone call.

I'm from Douglasville, GA and my fiance is from Smyrna, GA. I think I might have met your son at the airport when they were flying out. Did he leave on Nov. 16?

Yes!  I wish I'd known we could go to the airport! :(

 

Well my mom works at the airport so that's how I was able to get past security. No one else's love ones were there. I think I read on the website that you can go to gate when they are flying out if you on their orders but I'm not sure how that works.
