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.

Navyat34 - I see that JWMom posted a comment her for you. You figured out how to send me a friend request. You can do the same for JWMom & Gr8NvyMom as well.

I saw your friend request and I sent you a message. Check your inbox in the upper left corner of this page.

That is good that you had a phone call from your daughter and she sounded happier. 

I have my comments set to be approved before I allow them to be visible, since my page is visible to members on this site. That way, if someone is not my friend and not able to send a private message to me, and they post something more personal, I can keep it from being visible to others. 

This site is a lot easier to use on a computer, not sure if a tablet is still better than a phone. And so I only use my computer and I can't stay on the site all day or I don't get any other work accomplished. If I don't reply right away, I will do my best to reply as soon as I am able.

Hi Navyat34 - This is weird, when I go to the March PIR group it shows that you are a member there and I thought I had a notice that you were a part of BC Mom group before. But none of your groups are showing up here on your profile page. - Please don't delete yourself from groups. 

If you look below Gr8NavyFam has posted a comment for you. If you click on her little dog picture, then that should take you to her page. You can comment back to her or if you are on her page under her dog picture you should see where it says add as friend. 

I saw your posts to me and I have a lot to get done today so I can't take too much time but know you are not alone. We will help you get through this.

Hi Navyat34, Welcome to the PIR March 2021 Group! I have a SR scheduled for PIR the last week of March. It's been an interesting learning experience so far. I will post most days just to greet everyone and check in. I understand that you are not familiar with online chat. :) It took me a while to get accustom too. It's okay, please feel free to reach out if you have questions. :)

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!!

Your NAVYforMoms Admins
