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."

When driving to the gate all you need to do is provide your ID Ticket and your rental car agreement.

Comment by Susan on February 12, 2019 at 8:47am
How does it work if your renting a car ? Is there an extra process when getting on base?
Comment by Suzanne H on January 22, 2019 at 2:39pm

Thanks! I was concerned that I might have needed to register the car or get a special pass

For the PIR, they direct you to a coveredparking ramp/garage near the building for the ceremony.

Hi All,
I am looking for information on parking for PIR on January 25. I am flying to Milwaukee and will be driving down from Wisconsin.
Comment by beaufort71 on January 15, 2019 at 2:29pm

Hello All,

My son's PIR was pushed back to March 01, 2019.  He gave me his division # and PIR date, however I did not get his Ship #.  Will that be provided in the form letter and how long before I receive that letter.  I spoke to my son on January 03, 2019.  Any info would greatly be appreciated!  Thanks

To Moms of Graduated Sailors - If you attended the Sarge's Meet and Greet, what was it like?  I am really interested in seeing pictures and videos of my son's boot camp experience.  And I would enjoy meeting other parents as well.

TY once again lemonelephant!!

Comment by lemonelephant on December 18, 2018 at 11:18pm

Tlpemp55, It is usually Saturday, but flight availability issues could result in a Sunday flight. Only your then Sailor will know for sure. See PIR Day and Liberty during PIR Weekend.

Comment by Tlpemp55 on December 18, 2018 at 7:43am

My daughter is due to graduate 1/25/2018. Booking flights and hotel. Does anyone know for sure when they leave for A school if going to Pensacola FL? Saturday or Sunday?
