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."

I didn't get my letter in the mail today either.  I haven't checked Paula's mail yet though.

Nothing here yet either. And I don't want to call the recruiter to get the information because I don't want to be considered one of those wives. :)

If you don't have the form letter on Thursday, then call the recruiter and then double-check the address against those at or Ship/Division--How it Works.

BTW, you may want to make change number 4 within OPSEC and PERSEC (Making Changes to Your Profile).

Not that it will make you feel any better, I did not get one either and I have not heard back from his recruiter.

It actually kinda does! I have heard stories of people never receiving them for unknown reasons. So at least for know I don't have to worry that it's lost in the mail. :)
I was looking at the RTC facebook page and it looks like most people with 10/10 departures have already received their letters and form letters for the 12/13 PIR are already going out :(

I'm glad we are all on this page together. I would be going crazy if I didn't know that you all hadn't gotten your letters either. I feel like our guys must all be in the same division. Our recruiter told us that they were on SHIP 2 Div 906.

I'm really hoping my husband is in a 900 division. He doesn't play an instrument but his recruiter said with his asvab score and his age it is a real possibility.

The Page, 800 and 900 Divisions, within Boot Camp Moms (and loved ones) will be of interest to you since you have a recruit in a performing division. I believe that Division 906 is Ship Staff/Honor Guard. That division should have PIR on 12/20/2013 unless there are two 900 divisions in the 12/13/2013 TG, which does happen about 4 times a year--more after a week has been skipped than before though.

if our kids left on the 10th, would they be in the 906 division? I was hoping for a 12-6 PIR.

I'm a little surprised at Division 906 rather than Division 905, but it is possible.

Our recruiter could have incorrect information.  I'll check with them again tomorrow. Unfortunately we have been given more incorrect info than correct info from them over the last year.
