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:

You are very welcome.  Thanks for your kind words.  Take care and blessings to you and yours.

That is great that he is a Section Leader.  You have much to be proud of.  Recruit Petty Officer Positions will tell you a little about that.

Yes, AO requires "Secret" Security Clearance, which is above "Confidential" that many ratings require.  There will be additional checks while at BC, but they are mainly computerized checks and not the in person checks that those requiring "Top Secret" Cearance will get.  Your SR may have had the info needed for his security checks. He would have had to provide info for the previous 5 years. Don't worry. Take care and blessings to you and yours.

The Page, Arrival and What Happens at the RTC, includes the link to the day by day at Since the 26th was 1-3, that means Monday will be 2-1 and Wednesday 2-2 since Tuesday is a federal holiday and he will be on Hold.  Be sure to let others in the the division know that the 26th was 1-3 DOT by posting in the discussion for the brother divisions within the PIR group. take care and blessings to you and yours.

Hey--my son is going to nuke in charleston when he finishes boot camp.....we have received the box and the form letter.....have sent 8 letters between my husband, our 2 daughters and myself. I miss him so much, but I know he is doing well. Hope our SR's are forming some great bonds of friendship!

DNmom, I just received my son's form letter today, he is also on ship 03 div 091. At first I didn't think the writing on the envelope and in the letter was his (usually I'm not able to read his sloppy handwriting), but then I realized it was. Wow! Already noticing a change and he's only been at BC for nine days.

Hello :) My son is also on ship 03 and div.091. So they probably are getting to know one another! I got the form letter today and PIR is 2/8/13. His name is Mark and his MOS is ABE. He leaves for A school in Pensacola Fla after RTC.

Hey there! My sons name is Casey. He leaves from Raleigh on the 12th. Lets keep in touch for sure! We will be able to share when each of us gets the letter, the box etc!

Welcome to!!

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 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!!!
