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."

Please note! Changes to this guide happened in October 2017. Tickets are now issued for all guests, and all guests must have a ticket to enter base. A separate parking pass is no longer needed to drive on to base for parking.

Please see changes to attending PIR in the PAGES column. The PAGES are located under the member icons on the right side.

Gigi, I know there is alot to absorb, you don't have to learn it all right away.  My son is in his 6 week in A School and I learn new things every day yet. Sometimes I know more about what he is doing than he does. Lol ! Remember your in training too and this is going to be the hardest thing you will probably ever do. Try to stay busy, I was busy making refrigerator magnets and PIR ribbons for the meet and greet we never got to go because of coronavirus. If you can keep your mind off of missing him, (which I know is impossible) you will have a little peace. I really had to lean on my Faith and the ladies on the site to help me make it. Your in the right place, I thought I was crazy but it turned out we all are crazy. These emotions are so strong it's hard to gain control over them. Hang in there and share, it will help. God Bless you.

Hi Gigi - you will definitely want to join our nuke mom's group.  We are pretty active over there and we have lots of info on the nuke program posted in our pages.  Here's the link:

Nuke moms

Also, when you respond to someone you need to click on the bottom of the comment that they left for you.  It says "comment back", "view thread" or "send message".  That way it posts on their page.  Otherwise they won't see the comment unless they happen by your page!

Again, welcome!

Hello! B’s Nuke Mom,
My son just left yesterday to Boot Camp, he was quarantined for 2 weeks before heading to the camp. He will be in Nuke after. Any information you can share to be in the Nuke School? Like schedules and all. Thank you.

Welcome to!   

Head to “Settings” on the main page right away to add a profile image (no last names visible, please) and complete your Profile. Then - and this is important! - read these Community Guidelines and this Operations Security (OPSEC) Checklist, for the safety and privacy of all our Sailors.

Then jump right in!  Browse around the site and check out the groups and the information in their Discussion Forums.

Join this group for boot camp moms, where you'll also find a group for your Pass in Review (graduation) date; and this one for PIR Reference Information.  

Get a head start during boot camp by joining groups for, and learning about, your Sailor's occupational specialty and "A" School; and later your Sailor's duty station and/or Navy ship and homeport. You can also join groups for your own state, region or home town and interests from getting ready for deployment to care package ideas!

Please say Hi when you join a group, and feel free to ask any and all questions - everyone was new once, and there is no "dumb" question. 

This site was created by the U.S. Navy just for you, and we look forward to getting to know you and your Sailor.  

Welcome to the NAVY family - we're so glad you're here!!
