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. There are now tickets issued, and there are no longer parking passes for PIR.

Please see changes to attending PIR in the PAGES column. The PAGES are located under the member icons on the right side.

Glenni,  I am so sorry that your Mid's cruise was cancelled (again).  And I do hope that something works out for him this summer. It is so frustrating sometimes.  And I agree, with you that I often found it harder to deal with than my son, maybe because he just loves the Navy so much. 

Comment by LakeviewMom on July 18, 2019 at 10:37am

Shocklady,  I am glad your Mid enjoyed Sea Trials!  Even when events/training were hard (maybe especially when they were) mine found enjoyment and learning in every experience.

Comment by Glenni on July 12, 2019 at 4:41pm

Well, the sub cruise he was scheduled for got cancelled again. I think I may be more disappointed than he is because he sees it as a chance to just keep working at his summer job and making money. But I was really hoping he would get the experience. I'm still praying something will work out!

Comment by shocklady on July 4, 2019 at 7:52am

Glenni, he said it was a great learning experience.  Glad he went

Comment by Glenni on July 4, 2019 at 12:15am

Siempre Gumbi.... His iteration of Sea Trials was cancelled, but he will get a sub cruise later this month. Shocklady, how did your son like SeaTrials?

Comment by shocklady on June 9, 2019 at 9:28am

My son went to Newport yesterday, he is from the Capital Battalion in DC.  

Comment by LakeviewMom on June 8, 2019 at 9:13pm

Glenni,  I am so glad to hear that. I hope your son has a great time and learns a lot.   I knew there was some kind of ROTC thing happening in Newport because some of my son's friends reported there to work for several weeks.  Christina

Comment by Glenni on June 7, 2019 at 10:20pm

So SeaTrials is back on! He goes to RI next month. Anybody’s Midshipman been through SeaTrials?

Comment by Glenni on May 18, 2019 at 12:51pm

Thank you so much for your perspective and insight lasersailor. And it's good to know that despite the last minute changes, the cruises still happened LakeviewMom. Thank you for your input!

Comment by LakeviewMom on May 15, 2019 at 12:45pm

I cannot speak to this summer, but I can say that my midshipman has had last minute changes to his summer cruise plans the last 2 years, as did most of his battalion mates.  I do hope your mid gets to sea in some way this summer.  I know mine got a lot out of his summer cruises.
