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.

Hi Terri:  Just checking to see if you are on track for 10/14.  Will you be at the meet and greet?

Hi Terri:

I received a 5 min phone call today from my son.  He was upbeat and had a lot to say in 5 min.  He talked about test scores, inspection scores, the food (says its pretty good), and wisdom teeth.  I received the call around 4:00 California time.  It was so good to hear his voice.  I did not detect any signs of stress or home sickness.  Thank God.  I did have a brief scare.  He said he was scheduled to have his wisdoms pulled today.  He remembers them putting t he IV in his arm and the next thing he awoke with medical staff around him in the hospital.  He said they told him he had a heart condition.  He said after further testing he did not have a heart condition and he was fine.  They are rescheduling his wisdom pulling.  My heart sank hearing this.  I am thankful he is fine, but I would like to know what happen. He said they were suppose to get an hour phone call, but someone got in trouble.  He has been getting my letters and said he wrote me on Sunday.  Today is Thursday and no letter yet.  Maybe by tomorrow or Saturday.  So keep writing.  They are receiving our letters

Hi:  Received my letter today.  I started crying before I could open it.  He was able to write me a brief note.  Let me know if you see our Ship 03 Div. 347 group pop up.  I'm still learning my way around the site.  Jordan graduates October 14th.  Is it the same for your son? BTW my name is Sandra

Hi:  I received the box today.  Did your son's come as well?  I cried as I opened the box and pulled out his dirty

That is wonderful.... To have your husband swear in his son. Dad must have been very proud. You are right about people not understanding. My youngest son is Navy ROTC and is a senior this year. So I will have to do this all over again. But that's ok cause I'm a very proud mom.

She left Monday 8.22.11. She called me from the airport & the scripted call came around 10:30ish Monday night.  Anxious to hear from her. 

I know she's OK, but still worry. LOL

Yes, I live in Sacramento.  I too sent my first born off on Tuesday.  Well, really on Monday as we had to drop them off at the DoubleTree.  Let's keep in touch.  Where do you live?
