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."

We made our return flight for Sunday, but thats just because we are going to spend the weekend in Chicago.  I think we will only get to see our son on graduation day as I have heard he might be flying out that night or the next day.  Who knows.  I have been talking to another mom, our sons flew out on the same day from the same MEPS and her son's PIR is the 9th.  This whole process is going to take some getting use too.

Divisions 175 and 176 are brother divisions and train together and will have Battle Stations-21 (BST) together, so look for others with loved ones in either division. 

Since your recruit is in one of the last two regular divisions in the TG, you can expect the "I'm a Sailor!" call only a day or so before PIR (probably Wednesday). Write to your recruit and ask when Battle Stations-21 (BST) will be so you will know when to expect that call.

Hi NC proud too!  My son shipped April 10.  Do you know where your son will go after RTC?  I haven't received a personal letter yet, but made my flight reservations as soon as I got the form letter.
