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."

Dear US Navy...

Posted on April 11, 2017 at 2:00pm 4 Comments

Dear US Navy:

I give to you my son. I held him as an infant; I hugged him as a boy

and through the years he has become my pride and joy.

I love him more than I can say, his life more precious than my own, but gone are the whims and notions of the little boy I had known.

For the years have passed so quickly from the time it all began

The Page, 800 and 900 Divisions, within Boot Camp Moms (and loved ones) will be of interest to you since you have a recruit in a performing division. I believe that Division 931 is Sticks/Flags.

900 divisions usually go through Battle Stations-21 (BST) on the Monday night before PIR with calls from 2 to 8 pm Central Time on Tuesday. Write to your recruit and ask when BST is to know for sure.

If you would like information on your recruit’s rating (job/occupational specialty) or field, then let me know the rating or field. There are groups for most specialties and/or "A" Schools and knowing that will help you to better plan for PIR weekend.

Take care and blessings to you and yours.

I 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 and what to expect.
