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."

Liberty after PIR Graduation-Family not attending Graduation

Hi everyone, I was wondering if anyone knows the process for liberty right after PIR graduation? I went on the RTC site and it doesn't address if sailors can leave base with family if the family can't attend the ceremony due to vaccine mandate. We just want to pick him up after the ceremony. Can sailors sign out? Can non-vaccinated family sign them out? "A" school is out of state, not Great Lakes.See More

Good Morning and welcome to our group. We are glad that you are here. I also am a seasoned mom and help out as well. I haven't been posting as much like I used to. My schedule is pretty full right now but I always read the comments and will comment when I can.

Someone will always answer you and just know that you are not alone. 

Just wanted to say hello and welcome.   :)

I am not sure what you mean by what times are these? When I click on the view thread, above your comment, it gives date and time stamps for all of my comments on your profile page. Is that what you are asking about?

Or are you asking about times that I refer to in the discussion that you posted on the BC Mom group page, or my discussion post? 

At 10:37pm on July 18, 2022, Chipmunk said…

Good evening, I hope you are finding the information that you need. 

At 9:38am on July 18, 2022, Chipmunk said…

Be sure to also post in the MAA group a hello, there are a few others who are in the BC Mom group also that might chime in and say hello on that page.

Looks like you just joined the BC Mom group, I saw it here before I saw it in my new member notifications. Welcome!

Good Morning! I am one of the "seasoned" moms that help out on the BC Mom group page. I happened to notice you were online and came to say Hi. I see you joined the BC Mom group - I guess I missed the notification otherwise I would have also stopped to say hi!!

Please come to the group and say a hello and introduce yourself. The way to do that is click on the BC Mom group link to the left here, scroll down past all the wonderful information posted on the page, keep scrolling past the discussions, and then you will find a Comment Wall area on that group page as well. That is the best place to post your comments, questions, hello, or share how you are doing getting ready to send your loved one to BC. 

The Comment Wall messages are seen by a lot more of our group members than the discussions are, so that is why I encourage you to post there. I will be busy for a couple of days, but we have other members who help to watch for new posts. I see you are a part of the DEP group as well. That one may not have as many active members to reply to your questions, so if you don't get an answer there, be sure to come ask in the BC Mom group!

Welcome!! Please read my blog to give you an idea of what the first few weeks may look like.. Welcome to the Navy... Everything will be ok!  The First part is some things to do before your SR leaves IF you Can, It’s NOT ESSENTIAL! Up and to the Left is a link to all the Navy Lingo! It is titled Navy Speak and you can find it here. We are here to get you through the “Great Silence” of the next 4 weeks (ish) and the 10 weeks of BC (ish). You will come to learn that No News Is GOOD News and everything is Needs of the Navy. You life will be Hurry Up and Wait and it’s ok to make plans but they are subject to change until after they have happened so it’s best to embrace the Motto: Semper Gumby!! (Always Flexible!!)

Welcome to NAVYforMoms.com!   

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!!
