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."

If the PIR date is their graduation date then it is March 20th.

Leighana - yes his PIR (Pass in Review) date is his graduation date.  The 3/20/2020 PIR group should be up soon.  Once it is you can join.  In the meantime the boot camp group should be able to answer most of your questions.

Hang in there!
