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."

"@keenansonya2 If you still have not received the form letter your sons recruiter may have his address and graduation information.  My sons recruiter sent me the information last Thursday, just a few days after he left."

Ship 06 Div 208

My son left for boot camp on 8May2017.  He is in Ship 06 Div 208 and his PIR is scheduled for 30Jun2017.  We are beyond excited for him as he begins his Navy career!  All we have gotten so far is the first, quick call letting us know he is there, his box of belongings and the form letter with his information.  Does anyone know the average time frame for the first phone call home?  I appreciate any info anyone can pass along!See More

I see you have joined AECF - FCs and ETs; your recruit will discover his rating while in BC, usually near the end of BC. "A" School is in GL, so you will also want to join Great Lakes A School Q&A and GL A-school moms. You can also check out the Training Support Center (TSC) Great Lakes Facebook Page.

The Rating Information Card for AECF can be found at https://www.cool.navy.mil/usn/enlisted/rating_info_cards/aecf.pdf. (It has an error in the number of weeks for ATT; it should be 9 weeks instead of 11 for FC and 11 weeks rather than 119 weeks for ET.) The Rating Information Card for Electronics Technician (ET) can be found at https://www.cool.navy.mil/usn/enlisted/rating_info_cards/et.pdf and the one for Fire Controlman (FC) can be found at https://www.cool.navy.mil/usn/enlisted/rating_info_cards/fc.pdf. (If you get the security warning, it is safe to go there.)

You will be able to enjoy extra time with your Sailor following PIR. Plan to leave late Sunday or on Monday if you are able to do that. (See PIR Day and Liberty during PIR Weekend.)

Divisions 207 and 208 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.
