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 am thinking she must be choir as she loves to sing, doesn't have any prior musical experience, just a guess though. Our recruiter has been useless so I won't know until I hear from her.

hotel is booked

I just wanted to stop in - I have a son in 915.  I posted on the 900 page but thought about coming here also, am I the only one to just realize we will be missing out on seeing our SR at a PIR before theirs?  I keep hoping I am wrong and someone will correct me.  According to the PIR schedule, the last one before 03/01 is 02/08.  Ours would have performed at the 02/18 and 02/22 if their were one.  :(  sad momma here!  Oh well, it is all ok  Just makes me long for 03/01 more!  Have a great day y'all!

Good thing is, the RTC FB page usually posts pics of PIRs, so we may see pics of our 914/915'ers before we get to "see" them!  Still no letter yet. I swear my mailperson is getting slower/later each day!

No letters or phone calls here, yet.

Just wanted to say hi to all the parent from ship 02/915/914   My daugher is 915

got a letter today :)

Great!  Thanks for letting us know.  Maybe letters are coming soon to this neck of the woods.

I hope you do too. pls let me what your SR says. mine didn't go into much detail. 

I will if I get any detail. :)  (Mine is not too wordy usually.)  I will be very happy with a Hi Mom, however brief!

I've still only gotten a call from my SR! I'm hoping that when I fly back to Montana today that there is a letter waiting in the mail! Keep your heads up high, ladies! 33 days until we see them march in dressed in Blues and looking sharp! 

My guy will be staying in Great Lakes for A-school. His parents (my in-laws) just bought their plane tickets! We have 5 people coming, and I've heard that extras can stay in the Visitor's Area until everyone else is seated and then they are allowed in, if there is room. We are SO EXCITED!! 

Bought my cam corder yesterday, so we are set to go!
