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."

Hi all, I thought I'd start a discussion for those of us with SRs who will be heading to Charleston, SC together for the NUKE program so we can stay together through that as well!

hey all - when did your SRs leave for boot camp? My husband left last Wednesday so I was thinking June 10th might be his PIR date but unsure..still waiting for the official letter. I received the box today which was a little emotional! Just want to know when I can (hopefully!) see him!!

here4kids, you have some great ideas.  I also kept my SR up to date on what was going on with some of his friends (just in case they didn't write).  I have also heard that some people would print out their Facebook pages, so they could see all the good wishes on them.  I sent pictures of my SR as a little boy (with fun captions) and even had some of him in a little sailor outfit at age 3.  There were always jokes or just random fun facts that I would find on the computer.  I actually still continue sending those to him now while he is in A school and he loves them.

Sounds like she has a solid base and will make a wonderful sailor!

Sorry....below I meant to type "....not to come to PIR" not PFA.  OOPS!
Comment by diannep on April 17, 2011 at 7:56pm
here4kids:  It seems that in every PIR group, there are a couple who have not passed their run or maybe their swim (it is usuallly the run).  They are made to call home, a scripted call with Navy personnel nearby, saying that they had not passed their _____. they would not graduate, and not to come to PFA (they are told to say this).  We try to remind families not to freak over that...and not cancel travel plans.  Because they actually get more chances to try (and the RDCs want them to succeed so they really push them).  They can actually pass it as late as the day before PIR, do their final test (BattleStations) that night with the next PIR group, and be at their own PIR the next day, a sailor in uniform but in the balcony due to being up all night doing BattleStations.  Most of them make it.  But, God forbid, they don't pass it, they will have time to do girl was there for 3 weeks after PIR but passed her run and was sent straight to A School (no PIR).  So....hopefully our daughter will get working hard now and not be in that predicament!  We suggest that people book on Southwest Airlines if possible since they have no change fee and they let you send two pieces of luggage free.  They fly into Milwaukee (about an hour drive from GL) and Midway (Chicago).
