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:



**UPDATE 4/26/2022** Effective with the May 6, 2022 PIR 4 guests will be allowed.  Still must be fully vaccinated to attend.

**UPDATE as of 11/10/2022 PIR vaccination is no longer required.

**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).

I am so ready to serve my country! As a black American I feel lucky to have the right to serve the best country in the world as an equal. My grandfather wasn't allowed to because of his skin color. Those times are gone! The only color I care about is RED, WHITE, AND BLUE.
I.......AM A UNITED STATES SAILOR! Hoorah!!!!!!!

Training for RTC Oct 3rd, 2013

I entered DEP at 204 lbs of muscle, never ran. I cleaned up my diet. Ran everyday with my wife. She has lost 60lbs in 6 months. I've lost 20 lbs in 3 months. The key to success for military is to set a goal, and work your hiney off and be disciplined. I'm 27 and I feel like I can help these younger guys who struggle. We are one! We are AMERICA'S NAVY

Your Username appears to contain your last name; if so, you should change that and the URL to this page. Numbers 1 and 2 at the bottom of OPSEC and PERSEC (Making Changes to Your Profile) (clickable link) will tell you how to fix both. There may be other changes you will want to make as well, such as the changes in numbers 3 and 4.

Thank you for joining my kids in serving this country.

If your wife is not a member, help her join and get connected with others within Girlfriends, Fiances, and Wives of Sailors, Leavin' for bootcamp in October, and Boot Camp Moms (and loved ones). There will be important info for her in When Will the Recruits be Paid? and Information for Spouses. Take care and blessings to you and yours

You may want to join to learn the ins and outs from the DEP point of view. Craig runs that and will steer you to some good links on there. Be sure to check out the discussion, Things to Do in the Last Month Before Your Future Sailor Leaves for the RTC. Best wishes and thank you for your upcoming service to our country!
