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.

I thought I would start a discussion area to post when you hear from your Sailor that they passed Battlestations!  When you talk to them, I heard it is nice to find out if the whole division passed (some people can't call with their group because they are on watch so it is nice to let everyone know how the division did!).  Good Luck SRs, Anchors Aweigh!

That is a GREAT IDEA looking forward to THE CALL!!!!!

HE MADE IT ALL OF 205 DID!!!!!!!

Thanks for starting this; I am addicted to this page now!  I think about my SR constantly.  I hope and pray their division all do well on Battlestations.  I know my recruit is looking forward to it; I'm sure they all are.  I will post as soon as I get a call!!!!


Hoping that you ladies also post about your new sailors on the main PIR page since that is where most will be looking to see that you have new sailors!  Please be sure to ask your new sailor if all in that division passed and post that.  Some will have "watch" and won't be allowed to call right away. 

Remember, we can't post exact BattleStations dates until "after the fact."  Please friend request/message me if you have received a BattleStations date for your division.  I'm keeping a schedule.  Thanks!

If anyone hears when Div 934 is going to do BS please send me a private message.  We are going to be flying to Chicago next Thursday and its a long flight from California. I'm skeptical they would do BS on July 4th but I'd hate to miss the I'm a Sailor call.

I missed her last call on Father's day and my SR left me a teary message which broke my heart.  Fortunately she did get my husband on the phone and got to speak with him and her little brother, which was more important than Mom on Father's day, even if I have to admit to it.

It's always heart breaking to miss calls, but your almost there now!! Only 9 days!!! Can't wait til those calls start coming in!! Everyone remember ask your SR if whole div passed! Thanks!

Hi ccczz if anybody does private message you will you please message me. I found out my daughter tried to call me on the 14th. I found out our phones are not working right. So please we are coming from Nc and if anybody starts getting calls from 934 please post. Her bunk mate and her both state they will be through with everything this week. They both state they have all their flags. Oh and they did gas chamber this past Monday.

Did you find about 934? My son is in that division also and I am driving out there from NY will be on the road Tuesday the 3rd....would like to know if I should wait to leave till I get the call



around 2:15



My SR said all 205 and 206 passed BS.  (Keep in mind what MSmom said on the regular PIR 7/6 forum).

It was great to finally hear his voice since 5/8!

Hope you all get a call soon!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
