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."

Events

**UPDATE - 2020**

Due to COVID there is no public PIR. The graduations are on Thursday, and the video of the graduation is posted on RTC's FaceBook on Friday at approx 3pm. Please keep in mind that a division may need to complete additional quarantine during training which will delay their graduation.

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.

Correnza, I sent you a private message, look for it in your Inbox in the upper left corner of this page.

Correnza - I sent you a friend request. If you accept me as your friend, then we are able to send private messages via the inbox in the upper left of this page to each other. Or you can click on my profile picture (Chipmunk) and go to My profile page where you can send a message to me. I don't get notified if someone accepts my friend request, so you might want to post a comment on my page. Again just click on my picture, it will take you there. I do get those notifications via my email feed.

I saw you had posted on the GL school group. If you don't get answers there, be sure to post it in the BC Mom group. Also, this  blog of BelovedbyHim might be helpful to you as well - 

First Things First-- The Quarantine Edition

FYI - where you see blue letters click on that, it is the link to a new page of information for you.

Correnza - Welcome to the BC Moms group!! I try to follow along with who has joined our group but sometimes I miss the notifications. I just wanted to say Hi. I am one of the regular "seasoned" moms that sticks around and answers questions in the BC Mom group. I am also from OK, and my son has been in the Navy for over 3 years now. He is in the Nuke field. - Be sure to read all the posts in the group as sometimes you question is answered on later in the day when someone has a chance to reply. We all volunteer our time on this site and for me, I only use my computer to log in and reply.

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!!
