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:

Hello -


I'm new to the site, my son leaves for BC on May 10th and I know he will receive letters from friends and family so I would love to provide that for someone that doesn't have the support.

I am signed up now and wondering what happens next.  My son is very excited to go to HI, while I think it sounds very far away.  We will have to do some saving for sure to try to get there!!    I would be happy to write to any recruits and my daughters would love to do it too!!!
