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 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).

You are from Santa Claus,  IN,  aren't you?  My son was telling me that one of his best friends in his division was from Santa Claus. He told me that 5 of the guys in the division would be going to Monterrey at the same time he does. I misunderstood him and thought you b/f was one of them. I saw a couple of your posts and thought that you were probably the girlfriend of my son's friend.

Hi "ald2316," and welcome to Indiana Moms! I'm the administrator for the group, so if you have any questions, please ask. My son is a Nuke MM serving on the submarine ALABAMA, based out of Bangor, WA. He's been in for five years.

If you're willling to drive, there's a monthly informal dinner in Avon (on the west side of Indy) which meets on third Mondays. Click Sept 19 on the Events calendar (right-hand column) for those details.

From time to time, we also have regional gatherings in various parts of the state. In fact, on Sept 24, there's an event in Bargersville; again, check the Events calendar for details.

Jump in with any questions or comments you may have. I think you'll find we're a nice bunch of folks and always willing to lend an ear to listen or a shoulder to cry on. Hugs! k.
