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.

"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…"

"We’ve received one REAL letter from our SR. His div is 323.  Letter was a little vague about what’s going on but it was in his handwriting.  Anyone opened the PIR groups for September yet?"

ROM = Restriction of Movement

GWL = Great Wolf Lodge where they were housing the SR for ROM, but we think they have moved them else where now, I am just not sure.

Welcome to Navy For Moms!!!  I'm glad you are here.  I am also forwarding a welcome message from our website admins.  Welcome Aboard!!

NAVYforMoms Admins

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.

Once your loved one ships, 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!!
