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

**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).  Still limited to 2 guests maximum.

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.

Welcome to NavyForMoms.com!!

 
I hope you get all the information here you are looking for.  Please stop by the Survival Guide for New Moms for some of the info to start with.  
If you have a new Recruit and need phone cards for them please check out Calls for Recruits.org and get them for FREE.  I feel that the Family, Loved Ones, nor the Men and Women of our Armed Forces should have to pay for phone calls from Boot Camp.  The link above will take you to the website to send the email for the FREE phone cards if you need them.  Please spread the word if you know of anyone who can use this great service!!!

Hi Claudia! I know exactly how you feel about being with your guy for 3 years straight! My boyfriend and I have been together for 3 years July 29th, but were friends a year before we started dating. We spent a lot of time together, and during that time no more than perhaps 3 days apart. He's been gone for a little over a month now at basic. I can say it is hard to deal with, but keeping busy helps and write write write. I keep a journal that I write in every day to him (he knows of it and said he was excited to get it at PIR) on top of writing to him at basic. That alone really helps as it's like talking to him every day. The best I can say from this experience is support him with all your heart with encouraging and love filled letters lol and keep busy. I moved in with my sister to help her and her guy out with their four kids, keeps me busy and it's fun to be around all these little ones. Best of luck to you though, it is hard, but we have to be strong for our men and push through as they do at basic. Feel free to friend me here as I have also found it helps a lot to have friends in similar situations and settings =).
