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.

Since your son is GradNGo, you can actually meet him at the airport on Sat...and go to the gate and wait with him and his group (you get a family military gate pass from the airline he is flying). He should know at PIR what time his flight leaves. Many parents do this...even though it means getting up VERY early in the morning to go there. You can also give him his cell and laptop at the airport if he wants it for A School (assuming his particular school allows them this early....Meridian did).
