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."

here is the link to what MAY be his PIR group
I sure hope so. I have not received the letter, but given the last division in the PIR for 2/11, that would mean that 11 division would graduate on 2/18? I am hopeful that they will allow that many divisions in a group, or she will be pushed to 2/25. What do you think?

Southern 4, I hope so, my recuriter said it may be 2/18, but the letter will firm everything up.  lets keep our fingers cross for the both of us.

JessciaB, as always thanks.  I am not making any plans until I get the letter, I booked my Hotel Room, that easy to change. I am staying at a Marriot that is about 12miles away, I am a rewards member and got a good rate. 

Hi, I think your should be 2/18, just because the group on the 11th ends at division JessaB is great, she is just always helping everyone. I think I should book the hotel and then change it if I have to as well. Good idea. I hope you get your letter today. What date did your son/daughter leave?
My son is also Ship 3 Division 079.  From a link that JessicaB sent out, I'm pretty sure that PIR will be Feb 18. I have not recieved the letter.  My son't recruiter stated that he didn't have a PIR yet but it will be in the letter also.

Got the letter yesterday, Ship 3, Divsion 079 is graduating on 2/18. Make your plans!!!

Hello, My name is Lita and my fiance is in the same ship and division :)

My husband is Ship 03 Div 079! I spoke to him earlier this evening. He said today was the first day they were able to send letters in the mail. So we should be getting something next week. He was able to call home because it's our son's first birthday! :)
That is wonderful news NavyWife!  Now I don't know if I will hold my breath for a letter.  My boy has never been good at writing (but I'm keeping my fingers crossed!)
Just Got info from recruiter this am...mine is in this group. No letters, no phone calls yet (except the I am here call in two weeks bye). His recruiter was on vacation so could not get info till today. 
I went through the same thing, My recruiter was on Christmas leave and I had to wait for the form letter for his address.
Hi Ladies, I got my 7 letters today!! I'm so happy, finally got what I've been waiting for for weeks now! Hope you guys get letters in the mail as well!!
