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. There are now tickets issued, and there are no longer parking passes for PIR.

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

While double-checking some info in the FIT group, I noticed that your SR is in the RCU.  The group for that is SHIP 04 DIV 2341.  Lately they have been calling every other Sunday rather than every week, but they often get to call sometime during the week on the off week.  Take care and blessings to you and yours.

I sent you a friend request. Did you get anymore information about your SR's graduation? I'm going through a similar situation with my son. Just thought maybe I could offer some words of encouragement :) or at least an ear to listen from someone who knows what you are going through.

Welcome to NavyForMoms.com!!

 
I hope you get all the information here you are looking for.  Please stop by the Survival Guide for New Moms for some of the info to start with.  
If you have a new Recruit and need phone cards for them please check out Calls for Recruits.org and get them for FREE.  I feel that the Family, Loved Ones, nor the Men and Women of our Armed Forces should have to pay for phone calls from Boot Camp.  The link above will take you to the website to send the email for the FREE phone cards if you need them.  Please spread the word if you know of anyone who can use this great service!!!
