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:

I believe our sons have become buddies in Pensacola, assuming there are no other Alaskans in the group that just finished boot camp. ;) I sent a friend request so we can message each other. Are you on Facebook? I'm in the PIR group and the Pensacola A School group. Would love to chat!

We land around the same time, It's a shame i'm going to need a car while i'm there, sharing the cost of one would have been great. If you're going to M&G alone you're more than welcome to come with us.

Welcome to Boot Camp Moms (and loved ones). I look forward to sharing this journey with you. Be sure to check out the Pages (found under the pictures of the Members) for information on what to expect and to help you prepare for PIR. Check out the discussion, Things to Do in the Last Month Before Your Future Sailor Leaves for the RTC. What is your future Sailor's rating (job/specialty) going to be? There are groups for most ratings and/or "A" Schools and knowing that will help you to better plan for PIR weekend. Take care and blessings to you and yours.
