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

**UPDATE 7/29/2021** You now must be fully vaccinated in order to attend PIR:

In light of observed changes and impact of the Coronavirus Delta Variant and out of an abundance of caution for our recruits, Sailors, staff, and guests, Recruit Training Command is restricting Pass-in-Review (recruit graduation) to ONLY fully immunized guests (14-days post final COVID vaccination dose).  Still limited to 2 guests maximum.

Specific information on this policy change will be provided in the coming days and weeks.

We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience and appreciate your support.

My daughter said to stay with our cars, that we're not really authorized to be anywhere else.  She siad they have to march back to barracks together, but they will get liberty call there and walk back.

Mines in the band. He said that he gets to meet us as soon as theres Liberty call.

(Which is the end of the ceremony)

And he goes to the airport at 0200. We only get a few hours, but that time wont be wasted!

Mine told me to wait by the parking garage for her after PIR and that way we can see them march back too.
