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

Please note! Changes to this guide happened in October 2017. There are now tickets issued, and there are no longer parking passes for PIR.

Hello!

FireTeamLeaderWife here!

My Sailor PIR’d on 05/26/2011.

I am a “veteran” mom on the PIR groups mostly. I will check in here once in a while to see if I can answer any questions and lend some support. There will be a few other veteran moms along to lend a hand and support you all through your PIR experience. diannep, LaLa Ribbon Queen PIR Ribbons, Betsy,momofPensacolasailor, JessicaB Sailormom and a few new Ladies!. We have a few others that help out when we have SPECOPS in the groups, sjtina to name one. Others drop in occasionally too…plus we are always looking for more to “join the ranks”. Things change in the military and we like to give out the most current info that we can so moms that have just gone through this help a lot.

I’ll also be loading up the Discussion Forum area with lots of info to help you along during your PIR experience. Please feel free to add your own discussions and start your divisional discussions.

Welcome!

I am so thankful to have this site for all the details I never had a clue about. I'm a rookie Navy Mom and I miss my son like crazy!!

Comment by FireTeamLeaderWife aka FTLW on January 21, 2012 at 3:05pm

I will be adding links to the RTC [page as well as OPSEC into the Text box after Amy has added the weather and Count Down Clock!

Comment by FireTeamLeaderWife aka FTLW on January 21, 2012 at 3:04pm

Here is the link...they will not post the info for this TG until Monday.

http://www.bootcamp.navy.mil/upcoming_grads.asp

Once that info is up we will add it to the Name of the group.

I checked last years TG's for March and they did not skip any weeks. If I could wait until Mondays I would...but gotta get it going! LOL They skipped the last week in FEB this year just like last year. I know they can change anything though.

Comment by FireTeamLeaderWife aka FTLW on January 21, 2012 at 2:57pm

Yes, we were just waiting on a confirmation of the date...I will post my info just take about 20 minutes,

Comment by FireTeamLeaderWife aka FTLW on January 21, 2012 at 2:52pm

Hey JessicaB...you beat me too it! LOL Thanks! I have "other" work I can get too!
