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."

Follow this link for OPSEC Guidelines:



**UPDATE 4/26/2022** Effective with the May 6, 2022 PIR 4 guests will be allowed.  Still must be fully vaccinated to attend.

**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).  

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.

Actually Momsen is cruising in the Asian area at this time. Spent 1 yr in drydock. My son monitored that event traveling back and forth to Seattle the entire year. So they are good to go and left on deployment maybe in april. He had come home for 10 days then went back for his ship duty. They will be gone until October

Thanks EmC. I thought my son had said that the Momsen was returning in August but that is incorrect if she's in drydock now. He is finishing a school at Great Lakes and will report June 2 to Everett, WA. He has been getting a lot of misinformation so I appreciate your help.
