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.

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).  

Specific information on this policy change will be provided in the coming days and weeks.

We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience and appreciate your support.

Mask Mandate has been lifted but you are still required to be vaccinated.

Congrats on your phone call. I am green with envy. I hope I have one coming soon. Glad to hear that your daughter is doing well. :)

I only got one and a watch. I have no idea how he managed the watch. He's doing well and is currently RCPO for his division. I miss him so much. I'm glad you heard from your daughter. Maybe we'll see you 'round the lodge, if not the meet and greet. :)

Often recruiters give conflicting information, part of the problem is - it's hard for them to know every rate and sometimes bad info comes as a result plus things do change at A school and they don't always inform the recruiters.


Your hubby gave her good information,  when they get to school - it's all about performance.  That can greatly determine her future.  Our son was honor grad for his C school, there was only five students (C school classes are small and very focused) and five sets of orders were available, one in Hawaii and four sets for Norfolk...Nick is loving Hawaii!  I think girls love to be closer to home but Nick wanted to see the world ...he was born in Japan during our Navy days.

Thanks. I think my Hubby is hoping ET, but the needs of the Navy... Did your Hubby like being an ET?

Hi NavyGirl, thanks for the add, happy to answer any questions that I can or help you find the answers.

You need to join our AECF group - the group is for ETs and FCs. Have they already told your daughter she will be an FC?? They used to tell them in their 3rd week of boot camp but this past year they have been waiting until the end of boot camp but they can tell them at any point during boot camp.

Expect her to be in GL about a year for school for both ET and FC students. And then she will move to another state for C school. She won't know that location until the end of A school.

Either way it's a great rate with lots of schooling on the front end, generally about 18 months of school but sometimes the schools are backed up and she will be on "hold" waiting for a class to begin. In the meantime she gets paid the same either way :-)

You will want to join us at:

Awesome. My husband is also AECF, but they told him he wouldn't find out if he's ET or FC until closer to the end of boot camp.
