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:

Checking in . . . were your sailor's injuries from January fully healed? Have you been reslotted for PIR? I've been trying to keep up on so many fronts and wanted to circle back with you.

Yikes - so sorry to hear about your SR's injury. Have you had any updates on healing / progress?

How horrible - I hope that she is ok!

Joyb - you asked a question in chat before I joined re:900; that's the division that has special drill during PIR. They usually ask for people who have had either band or sports in the past.

Hi there, I just saw on the chat page that you got a call today from your daughter.  I got a call today too, maybe our girls are together.  What division is she in?

No, how do I get on the facebook page?

We are going through the same thing now... such a hard time, but proud time too.  My daughter is going to be in the CTI program.

I do have the facebook page and I had a typo in my last comment. My son is going as a AECF he won't know if he is ET or FC until sometime during bootcamp. None of us will know the PIR until they class up. It will be an anxious time for us waiting for the mail to come. I will keep in touch I think this will be our safety net. Take care.
