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

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.

Hi Paulette,

Thanks for the personal invitation to join you and your members in ROTC!! Although my ROTC experience is very limited, I'm eager to learn more about this wonderful educational opportunity so that I may pass it along to other parents and students.

Kathy B-
This should be the right place to get your questions anwered :) My daughter loves ROTC and while at first thought Annapolis was the place for her, now couldn't imagine it any other way.

Susan- Is he the only Navy ROTC student or the only ROTC student in general? There may by Army and Air Force ROTC students on campus to keep him company. Either way you are correct- it will work out fine.

Barb- your daughter will learn FAST to organize her time with school and ROTC. I would be surprised if her life doesn't pretty much revolve around those two things and the kids in the unit at least for the first semester- and that's not a bad thing. Usually they are good kids and studying really hard. They are so busy with getting acclimated to everything in the beginning that I think 90% of my daughter's free time was spent with ROTC students. They bond right from the get-go (by last name, so even at this point in the year she doesn't think everyone knows her first name- lol)

Chris- Kara can't go on summer cruise this year. She's majorily disappointed but because she was a mid-year scholarship recipient (3 1/2 yr) their is no funding for them for CORTRAMID. So- it looks like home and a summer job.
KU stands for....?

Linda- did seeing your son's face on my page make you do a double take- lol !!
I know I would have been pretty surprised :)
