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."

Your SRs, soon to be SAILORS, are becoming friends, and some of them may be heading to A School together.

Every single question that is asked is important
Every single concern is genuine
Every single member is important to us
We don't want to accidentally overlook any of them or you.

Hang in there!!!

Just got a call from SR,She sounds great, This is the first time I've heard from her since she left.
Battle stations are next Monday. Had a 30 minute call from her. The group is coming together, she is looking forward to the final test. She said shooting was fun, she was off 2 points from making Marksman, and I think they got a flag for best teamwork at Marlinspike. I'm not sure, I was so excited just to hear her voice , I might have missed something.

Are you people asleep, I havent heard a word about our Sailors all week.

GrangerTX-just been holding my breath since she called saturday night!

tried creeping on fb today trying to catch a glimpse of her in this morning's PIR pics, but no such luck. there are alot of great pics there, tho. worth checking out.  on the us navy recruit training command fb page, in the random 10/31/12 pics, i know i saw div marching with a 952 flag and the 'triple threat' flag right behind. if you haven't checked it out, everyone should take a peek, you could get lucky!


GrangerTX- being asleep would have been a better thing out here. We haven't had internet since "SANDY" hit on Monday evening, I am using my work place computer, and my cell phone service has been hit or miss. So happy to be able to post again and read everyone else's posts. My last post was the last time we had commuication, no mail has come in, I'm holding my breath as PIR is 11/9. I'm going to try to get on FB to look see pics, I have seen Pics of my SR from other families pictures from graduation on 10/26 ( I think). Hope everything is Ok with all your SR's, Hope to get I'M A SAILOR !!!!! call.:-)

Talked with our SR on Saturday and he said BS begin this Monday. So we should get a call soon. There is some great pic's on FB.

Great phone call just now, lasted 43 minutes, if any of you need a bunk he will leasing his starting Saturday morning

Got a call yesterday from my SR.  She past her PFT so she sounded great.  Sounds like the group is doing great.  Didn't get capt. cup but they did good as a team.  Was able to find some more photos of her on facebook.  This page and the facebook stuff has been a godsend to me.  So much so that I went out and got a phone with internet and a camera so that I can do my best to pay it forward.  My sister said she would show me how to download the photos.  For all of you going to PIR on Friday 11-9 I hope you all will try and do the same.  I'm hoping to give another Mom the same feeling I got seeing my SR.

Just got a call, I'm the proud mom of a sailor!!!!!!!!
