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

In light of observed changes and impact of the Coronavirus Delta Variant and out of an abundance of caution for our recruits, Sailors, staff, and guests, Recruit Training Command is restricting Pass-in-Review (recruit graduation) to ONLY fully immunized guests (14-days post final COVID vaccination dose).

Good morning. Did Ben say he will be able to come home for Thanksgiving? Jarrod said that they would be able to. Do you know what time we can pick them up? I can't believe that they are able to leave! That's great.

Hey! Thanks for the info! I appreciate all insight to nuke school that you can provide. I heard from Jarrod this morning about 6:30. He called from the airport. It will be good to have him closer to home now. Maybe we will get a temp address and news on Thanksgiving weekend soon. Love your new picture!

Hi Heather. Jarrod told us that he THINKS they have liberty but can only go up to 75 miles from base. I'm not sure where he got this info but I hope it is true. I guess we'll have to wait until they get there to get to find out for sure. Hope your time with Ben has been wonderful!
