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."

Please note! Changes to this guide happened in October 2017. Tickets are now issued for all guests, and all guests must have a ticket to enter base. A separate parking pass is no longer needed to drive on to base for parking.

Please see changes to attending PIR in the PAGES column. The PAGES are located under the member icons on the right side.

"I’m right there with you ladies. My son got to Bootcamp on the 22nd. The no communication is the hardest part for me. I have to keep reminding myself no news in good news."

You mom's are so awesome, I don't know what I would do without all of your genuine comments. My family won't even call me or anything. I think they think I have fallen off the deep end. Today I called my hair dresser, yeah that's right, who knows you better than her. She has to listen to you, your paying her, she isn't going to tell you to shut up. Anyway I cried to her asking for prayers for my son. She was so compassionate, she prayed for both of us. Why doesn't your family understand like people you barely know do? I read all your stories and I realize I 'm not nuts, I am just like the rest of you. Loving caring mothers who are separated from their child and missing them. Thank you all for being there for all of us!

Make at least change 3 at the bottom of OPSEC and PERSEC (Making Changes to Your Profile) (clickable link).

If your Username contains your last name, also make changes 1 and 2.

There may be other changes you need to make as well, so read and consider each of the changes.

Another change that I recommend that is mentioned in change 1 is to change the ZIP Code to one that is not easily associated with your recruit.

Since you have a recruit at the RTC, you can change "Waiting to leave for Boot Camp" above to "Enlisted." You can make that change on the same page when you change the ZIP Code.

My Son Leaving is Leaving for Bootcamp 1/23/2020

Posted on January 18, 2020 at 12:28am 6 Comments

My youngest son is leaving for !
Bootcamp on 1/23/2020. He seems to be ok & ready to face this next phase in his life, but I’m a little anxious. I’m super proud but I’m not scared because I know he has a good head on his shoulders.
Are there any other moms with a child leaving for Bootcamp on 1/23/2020?
