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.

I'm new here and i just want to thank you ladies for the insight. I am grateful for Navy for Moms, it has been a blessing for me. However; i'm a mess.

hi mustang , ive been reading the thread for this week's graduation and sorry to hear that your son didn't pass the swim test. I wanted to reach out because my son is scheduled to graduate next week and he hasn't passed his either. He said it's been too cold for them to go, so I feel like i'll be in the same position next week. He told me that it was six of them that needed to pass the swim test. I'm not sure if that was all inclusive or just his division. Was your son able to do battlestations or will he need to wait until he passes swim test before he goes further? Tell him to keep his head up and i'll keep you both in my prayers.
