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 as of 11/10/2022 PIR vaccination is no longer required.

**UPDATE 7/29/2021** You now must be fully vaccinated in order to attend PIR:

A split division is one that is not working together as a team as a whole.  That is bad and I am sure that they are seeing a LOT of IT as a result.  They will get it together and will graduate on time though.  They also, most likely, will not be earning calls until they get it together and realize that they are in it together.

Hi, is there something I can help with?  I am the mom of a Sailor of over 3 1/2 years, but I stay up to date with the changes that have occured at the RTC since he was there so I can answer many questions except those related to specific training dates, which cannot be shared openly anyway.  Take care and blessings to you and yours.
