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."

Welcome to PIR 06/22/2012

OPSEC, OPerational SECurity, is always of the utmost importance. Please take the time
to read the OPSEC and Community Guidelines. A quick note here: Last Names of Sailors/Recruits are not allowed on this site. If it is different from your Recruits it is still not recommended. First Names and pictures of your Recruit are allowed but remember someone can easily match them up with their "mom". So you might want to consider changing your profile picture.

Good for you Julie......will he be finished with A school then, or just a visit from his family?

Comment by Julie (ship 3 division 188) on July 4, 2012 at 10:52am
Going back to Chicago on August 3-7. Can't wait to see my husband....
Comment by mumof4 (ship 02, div 932) on June 28, 2012 at 7:09pm
Navymom284.....I can't wait to see your son sometime in the Navy Band. I know walking to the gate at the airport, my son said "Oh there's (last name) getting ready to go. I need to go see him!" And off he went before we even knew what was happening. It was so good to meet you, and I'm so happy your other boy is home for a visit. Have fun with the wedding plans.

Yeah PIR 22JUN!

Unfortunately none with my sailor.  If anyone sat in front of 189 and got some nice shots of the flags, near to the scholastic flag, my sailor lined up right behind it.  I'd love to see a better picture than what I got.  Camera was acting up.  Thanks again for all the support and comraderie.
