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."

Thanks for sharing about your family. Glad to hear that you will be at PIR. I look forward to meeting you and the moms that I am meeting through this site. I hope the next month flies byquickly for all of us and things go smoothly for our sons and daughters.

Between now and PIR I will get a picture up so that I am more recognizable. : - )

I guess I was lucky. Some how I got two calls over the weekend. One on Saturday and then Monday afternoon. My SR is my oldest son. I have another son (senior in high school) and daughter (middle school). I am also a elementary school teacher. All of that keeps me pretty busy. Also, my son went to a military academy his senior year and was gone for 5 1/2 months. So I kind of went through all of this before. Empty bedroom, quieter house, limited calls home and weekend visits. 

When we spoke he sounded good. He is settling in and is very familiar with the process which helps.

Will you be attending PIR? We will be arriving on Thursday and staying through Monday. Fortunately, his A school is at Great Lakes so we will have the weekend with him.

I see you have changed your Username; you may also need to change the URL to this page. If you do, make change 2 at the bottom of OPSEC and PERSEC (Making Changes to Your Profile) (clickable link) to take care of that. (If you are using a Smart phone, you will need to switch to Desktop View to make this change.)

 Also make change 3 while you are there so that this page is no longer open to EVERYONE (Anyone) with access to the web.

There may be other changes you need to make as well, so read and consider each of the changes.

Another change that I recommend that is mentioned in change 1 is to change the ZIP Code to one that is not easily associated with your recruit.

Since you have a recruit at the RTC, you can change "Waiting to leave for Boot Camp" above to "Enlisted." You can make that change on the same page when you change the ZIP Code.

Join the group, DEP-Leavin for bootcamp in August, to connect with others with loved ones who arrived the same day and may have PIR together.

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. Start with OPSEC and PERSEC (Making Changes to Your Profile) and Arrival and What Happens at the RTC and read 1 or 2 pages a day and then go back to them as you need the info.

What is your recruit's rating (job/specialty) or field 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.
