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.

July 3rd Graduation

Hi all Division 211 moms. Our sailors are in week four. Sounds like they are getting some gun action. We have not had any letters home yet so we RE going by the outline our son sent home. Our son Michael has called home twice, both times sounded a bit homesick. Bootcamp sounds so hard and we are hopeful we will make it to graduation. Anyone else hearing this from our sailors? Right now all we can do is encourage. Ideas?

I have been looking at the site and the comments for motels for graduation in July.  One of them said the location was a bit scary- I don't want to spend a fortune and since I will have my youngest with me- I would like to have something with a pool- I would like to be closer to the base.  Anyone have suggestions- where to stay or where not to stay!  Thank you!

Any Dental Assistance? San Antonio anyone? What will her school be like?

My daughter is going to finish boot camp May 30th.  I am so excited that I can see her in just a few more days and I'm also very sad to think it will only be for a few hours.  Then she'll be off to San Antonio the next day. I haven't heard from her for a month. I really thought they might let her get a phone call out on Mother's Day but nope.  I know they are suppose to let her call before PIR to make sure of who will be coming but I also heard from her that her group can make a phone call…

counting the Fridays

My son left a week ago tomorrow. I got home today and there was a note from Fed Ex... I missed the box. I cried to the Fed Ex guy that I talked to when he said the truck was out of the area and wouldn't be back until late tonight. I miss him so much. I know this is the best choice for him but I am really hating this. I hear it gets easier... 7 Fridays left.

He just got the call today.My future pilot

My son got the call he was waiting for today. He was selected for pilot, a dream come true for him. We were walking across the University campus taking a few last photos when it happened, so we were together. He just graduated Saturday. Summa Cum Laude, Honors College. I am so proud of him. He could have done anything  he wanted. This is what he wants. Now he has a month of study abroad in Chile left before OCS. I am so happy he will spend the month of June with us at home before all of this…
