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.

BC update

Hello All Moms,Thank you all for making this emotional roller coaster journey a bit more manageable for my family. I wanted to give an update on our SR. His original graduation date was supposed to have been yesterday (9/11/20), but it had been pushed back due to second ROM, in less than two weeks after they started their training (his arrival date was 7/14/20) they were sent back as a whole unit to an even harder ROM than the first one. It was so hard watching PIR yesterday....Since the second…See More

"Catherine, thank you for your update.  We share similar experiences. My son also was a 7/14 arrival with original graduation date 9/11/20. His entire division had to go to second ROM on 8/11/20 (division 328), so he did not have to change…"

"Hi Catherine, just read your post. Yes, division 328 is in ROM. My son is in that division. He is so depressed.  They are moved into a newly developed, but extremely cramped up space (graduation hall) and not able to do anything! I too am…"

"Hi NavyMom1013-our son's RTC dates were same I think. He is in Division 328. Unfortunately, his division was sent back to ROM last week. We received three letters from him two before the ROM, and one after. He was upbeat about the BC, but so…"

Welcome to NAVYforMoms.com!   

Head to “Settings” on the main page right away to add a profile image (no last names visible, please) and complete your Profile. Then - and this is important! - read these Community Guidelines and this Operations Security (OPSEC) Checklist, for the safety and privacy of all our Sailors.

Then jump right in!  Browse around the site and check out the groups and the information in their Discussion Forums.

Join this group for boot camp moms, where you'll also find a group for your Pass in Review (graduation) date; and this one for PIR Reference Information.  

Get a head start during boot camp by joining groups for, and learning about, your Sailor's occupational specialty and "A" School; and later your Sailor's duty station and/or Navy ship and homeport. You can also join groups for your own state, region or home town and interests from getting ready for deployment to care package ideas!

Please say Hi when you join a group, and feel free to ask any and all questions - everyone was new once, and there is no "dumb" question. 

This site was created by the U.S. Navy just for you, and we look forward to getting to know you and your Sailor.  

Welcome to the NAVY family - we're so glad you're here!!
