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:

i received a real 15 minute phone call from my son, he sounded good, but I could tell that he misses us. He said they march 5 miles in the snow everyday. He said he needs us to write more.

Hi saylormom4, Matt took a phone card with him, and 1 book of stamps, but I'm sending more stamps, and another phone card. I think they can probably buy them up there, but not sure. When they call home, they use pay phones, so they do need them

Hello. My name is Donna, and my son Matthew and he is 18, & is in ship 07 div 052. From what I hear the div 051 & 052 train together, so there is a good chance they know each other also. Matt also seemed to be doing really well, after the first 5 minute call, but no letters yet.

Hi, glad to meet you! My son's name is Myron and he is 19 years old and his first time away from home. I beleive it's harder on me then him. He sounded very upbeat and said he liked it when we last talked, I can't wait to get the real call, should be sometime next week. I have been writing him every day! Do you know if we need to send phone cards for them to call home?
