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."

Can anyone please help me.  My daughter left for boot camp on April 19th.  The only thing that I have yet to receive is her box with personal clothing items and her cell phone.  Should I be expecting to receive anything else anytime soon.  I have no idea when graduation is and I am eager to get my room booked.  Her recruiter is no help as he never returns my phone call, so very disheartening.  Can anyone fill me in on what to expect or when to expect it?

You should be receiving The Form Letter soon. It typically arrives an average of ten days after arrival, but can sometimes take longer. Most have it by 14 days after arrival. I usually tell loved ones to check with the recruiter if it has been at least two weeks since the recruit arrived without the form letter, but you indicate that the recruiter is not returning you calls, so that won't work. Since she will be in an integrated division (both males and females), it is possible that she had additional days in P-HOLD waiting for others to fill the division. You should receive a "real" letter soon. If you receive a "real" letter without receiving The Form Letter, then be sure to write and ask her for the password for the vehicle/gate pass and let her know the names of up to four people she should write on the Access List when the time comes.

Arrival and What Happens at the RTC will let you know what is happening and what to expect.

My daughter also left about the same time. I received the form letter about a week ago. Her graduation date is June 16, 2017. She's in ship 02 division 932. I don't know if that makes a difference but still waiting on my phone call.

Have you received a letter from her yet?
