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.

A little about me:
I was a single mom raising my 2 sons and 1 daughter until last summer when I married my husband. While I am no longer single, I still carry the worry of a single mom for her oldest son who has left the nest to join the Navy...

Son/Daughter
Stage of (Sailor’s) Navy career?

I learned that picking an MOS prior to enlisting can determine the immediate climate of a naval experience. My son got pushed into picking a crummy job and now neither he nor the navy are benefiting. Hopefully he will be able to turn his experience around and create something positive from his time served. Initially my son was planning on a 20 year career in the Navy; now it seems like he is counting the days till he can leave. As the child of a Navy family myself, I find this very disappointing, for him, for me, and for the Navy.

If you know your recruit's PIR date, go to http://www.navyformoms.com/forum/topics/groups-listed-by-pir-date and join the group for that. If you don't know the PIR date, join the group, DEP-Leavin for bootcamp in April, to connect with others with loved ones who left the same day and may have PIR together. I also invite you to join Boot Camp Moms (and loved ones) and to check out the Pages (found under the pictures of the Members) there. Arrival and What Happens at the RTC will let you know what is happening.
