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.

Im Girlfriend of A US Navy Sailor he Graduated in Sept. Im so proud of him Im also a mom of two geat kids! We moved in together in April and loved every min of it! Im new to all this being away from him and staring this long distance commitment! I Just staying strong and longing till the next time I will be with him again!!
I am here to support my
Spouse/Significant other
Stage of (Sailor’s) Navy career?
In the NROTC program
When I heard “Navy,” I...
Was proud and encouraged it
The Navy offers opportunities that...
Loving A Sailor
Loving a Sailor is not always gay,
Loving him truly is a high price to pay.
Its being alone with nothing to hold,
its being young but feeling so old,
Its having him whisper his love for you,
its whispering back you love him 86 plus two.
There comes a kiss and a promise of more
as his ship slowly glides away from the shore.
Reluctantly, painfully, letting him go, \
while you're dying inside for wanting him so.
Watching him leave with eyes full of tears,
standing alone with your hopes, dreams and fears.
Its sending a letter with the stamp upside down
to your far-away love in a far-away town.
Its going to church to kneel and to pray,
and really meaning the things that you say.
Being in love will foster your dreams
of that far-away sailor your mind fairly beams.
Days go by, no mail for a spell,
you wait for some words to hear that he's well.
Then a letter arrives and you're given in,
to open his letter and smile with a grin.
Yes, he is well and misses you so,
and is filled with the love you want to know.
Weeks are like months and months are like years,
you wait for the day when you'll have no more fears.
Days go by slowly, how many have passed?
Then suddenly you realize its here at last!
Yes, loving a sailor brings bitterness and fears,
loneliness and sadness and despondent years.
Loving a Sailor isn't much fun
but its worth the price when the battle is won.
And remember he's thinking of you every day,
he's sad and he's lonely while so far away.
So love him and miss him and hold your head high,
Be strong and have faith, wipe that tear from your eye.
Your man's a seafarer, like that old ancient trader,
It's a high price you pay for loving a Sailor

Anniversary Countdowns from
Our Navy experience so far...
It was positive and maturing. Our relationship has grown stronger.

Your recruit is the only one who can tell you they are a G&G. "Most" know or have a good feeling they are G&G by the 3rd week, maybe the 4th. There are a few who don't find out til week 6 or 7. Keep asking your recruit in every letter. Some kids are afraid to tell their parents, for fear that they won't come to PIR!

Our best advice is this: Arrive mid-day the day before PIR and plan to leave late on Sunday. If they are not a G&G, you get all that time with them. If they are a G&G, you will enjoy the restful evening and sleeping in on Sunday after those first two hectic days. Plan for the worst, hope for the best and be ready for anything - but it will be wonderful, I assure you!
