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).

We have a Survival Guide for Navy For Moms Newbie (clickable link) for newcomers. It has everything. Videos, pdf files of boot camp processing days, links to all the important groups plus tips on how to use this site. If you could pass the link to others who are new, we would really appreciate it. It looks like you are well adjusted. Thanks. The guide is also a featured discussion - on the Main page, middle section.

Hi Thank you for the friend request. My son is still in the beginning stages. He went to MEPS and scored high on  his ASVAB but when he went back  to MEPS for the physical he did not pass due to them requesting medical records. We're waiting and hoping for the best. Congratulations to your son :) Take care, God Bless and Keep in Touch :)
