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.

She didn't say the airlines, but did say they were connecting through Atlanta. She is "MommyHunt" on the 9/17 site. You can join that site, comment on her page for more info (you can "leave group" when you are done if you wish). If you can experience the airport with him, I would do it. I missed that with mine and regret it...some wonderful stories of seeing these sailors in uniform out there...and how warmly they are greeted by the civilians there. Everyone who has done it wouldn't trade it for anything! So think about it!

Hey! I got some info for you on the Pensacola group, at least....last week's. That Pensacola group left for the airport at about 3 a.m. on Tues....flights left later in the morning from OHare. MommyHunt on PIR 9/17 posted this when I asked a mom on there. So chances are, it will be the same for your son....you all can go out to the airport EARLY on Tues morning and wait with him. Hope this helps a bit.
