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:

Jennie, My son is with Division 086.  I do not know when he will be doing BS.  I sent you a firend request but hit send before I could put a private message.  Would please friend me and let me know when my son will be doing BS.  I am trying to keep my phone available but I am a teacher and it is hard some times.  If I know when to expect the call I will be better prepared.  I am crlmltn on the request.  Thank you,  Carole

Hi, Jenny. Your question is a good one, I'll post on the PIR page so everyone sees answer.

That first link I gave you may be specific to March 2/12 PIR, so this may be better:

Just in case our kids are not in the same class, here are a couple of links to help out re: PIR (Pass in Review - graduation)-

Facebook site that sets up according to Ship/Div #s:
Also found a lot of great info about planning and attending PIR under Groups e.g Sarge's Meet and Greet (hotel/car rental vs. cab rates etc)

Apparently if you know your daughter's recruiter, you may be able to get the address Ship/Div and PIR date info from them rather then waiting for the "Form Letter".

Welcome - I'm from Ypsi, but my kids went to Lutheran High Westland.  My daughter Katie went to BC the October after graduating from HS.  She is now a DC3 in Sasebo Japan on the USS Essex.  Hope things go well for your daughter, and you!
