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.

Thanks for the BattleStations date! I believe that 301-304 go the same night.

Welcome to Boot Camp Moms (and loved ones). I look forward to sharing this journey with you. When did or will your future Sailor ship to the RTC? I see you have joined Parents of A School Sailors in Pensacola; you wll also want to check out Sailors In Pensacola, FL For A School....Corry Station too!!; what is your future Sailor's rating (job/specialty) going to be? There are groups for many of the ratings with "A" School in Pensacola. Take care and blessings to you and yours.
