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."

this is great.... Cant wait till PIR I already reserved car trying to use FF miles for airfare as the flights back to florida  are high due to it being spring break. Advantage rental car had a great rate it was 51 dollars for  3 days total on a large car. looking into the marriot or springhill to stay and more than likely going to sarges pre PIR party on Thursday.

Is there something I have to download and print out before PIR?

I'm still waiting for my letter, but our recruiter texted me this morning that my son is in Ship 13, Div 127. He is going to be a CE. I can't wait for PIR!

Yea! Finally another mom from Ship 13, Div 127! I was starting to wonder if I got it wrong...

I'm hoping I get my letter today or tomorrow. We only live about 4 or so hours away from GL so hoping it gets here sooner than later! Keeping my fingers crossed!!!

I also have a son in 13/127....
