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."

Next will be the all important FORM LETTER which will have his/her expected graduation date. We have a stellar group of mentors who will take you from beginning to end (entire Boot Camp & PIR period): ellen0502 (who creates most of the groups), FireTeamLeaderWife♥ aka FTLW, diannep,  CatMom509 and Craig. You will be in excellent hands.

  5. If you are lucky, you'll find a very brief note from your recruit. There is not much room to write and they may be in a hurry, so don't be disappointed if the note is a short scribble.

GOING TO PIR (GRADUATION).

You will have many questions regarding PIR. Where to stay? When to get airline tickets? What to do around Great Lakes? How to order photos, dvds? How do I sign up for the multiple meet and greets for parents?  What should I wear? Join this group - PIR REFERENCE INFORMATION GROUP (clickable link). You'll benefit from the information from others who have made this journey. There will be very few experiences like this in life - enjoy it. Be proud of your recruit.

Survival Guide for Navy For Moms Newbies - keep this link handy.

You'll find an overview of the entire process. You should also watch the videos, look at the diagram of the barracks (ships), review the powerpoint presentations.

Wapadi..more than likely your PIR date is 5/27  here is the link to the group    http://www.navyformoms.com/group/p

Hello!

My son is there too.  It's been 12 whole days and I still miss him so.  He's my youngest of 3.  Just turned 19 a week before he left.  Have you recieved his clothes & first form letter back?

Click on this link and ciick on the file after the page comes up. Has a list of group sorted by geographical location. There are a number of groups in FL. 

Go back to a few comments back - link to New Moms Stop Here group and the Survival Guide will help you. Good luck. Your baby!  My baby is 22. My sailor is 26 going on 35 (very mature). I wouldn't dare call him my baby. Think God I have the other one. :)

How do you know the May 27 grad groups? they arent posted on bootcamp.navy.mil yet and the recruitors dont know yet either. j/w
I have been on here for a while and can usually tell by the division #'s when their PIR will be.
Bunker-why is div 810 missing from PIR May 13th?
Correction made. Good eye! Thanks.
Thank you. Its appreciated.
Ship 11, Div. 182 should be listed under May 26th unless something happened I don't know about????

Div 182 IS listed under May 26th. Ship 7 is what the RTC has on their web site. Ship 7 (in this case USS Chicago) is shorthand for that barrack. Some divisions are assigned to different barracks - as is the case probably with your son (Ship 11 - USS Kearsarge). I only listed what is on the official RTC site. Barracks are assigned names (after ships).

For more information on barracks, please go to this discussion:

Navy For Moms Survival Guide

My son is schedule to go to Boot Camp on September 1, how do I find out when his graduation would be??

Once he gets to the RTC, you wll get a letter from him that will tell you.  That is the only guaranteed way to know.  His PIR could be 10/21, 10/28, or 11/04 depending on when groups form.  You will just have to wait and see.
