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.

Do the sailors packup & leave right after MA graduation?  Some comments here say Yes, but my son thinks he’ll need to stay that Friday night on base & is able to leave, fly home, on Saturday. ??

My son just arrived in SA for A-School! Wondering how long he’ll have to wait for a Liberty weekend.  Does anyone know if they’ll have Thanksgiving off? Wondering if that’d be a good time to visit.

@Californiamom - I sent my sailor a box by FedEx.  It was supposed to deliver on Saturday but the mail is closed on weekends so he got it on Monday of this week.  I was able to give him the tracking no. and let him know when it would deliver.  Everything arrived perfectly - hope that helps.

Does anyone know what is the most reliable way of sending a care package for my sailor at A school. I used USPS 2 daypriority but according to the tracking app they weren't able to couldn't access the area for delivery. They will retry again tomorrow but I am hoping to find an alternative reliable mood of delivery for future packages . Thanks in advance by the way I used the address my son gave me
