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."

Welcome to the discussion group for divisions 369 & 370.

These two divisions are brother divisions and will be training together from the beginning through BS21 their final test. Your SRs, soon to be SAILORS, are becoming friends, and some of them may be heading to A School together.

Get to know each other, your SRs are!

 Please still use the Main Wall of the PIR Group to post questions, and concerns, we “veteran” moms don’t always get to into the discussion area as often as we would like.
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!!!

I missed my SRs call today.  Would have loved to know if he was told when he would fly out to P-Cola so I could change my reservations if need be.  Having extra time with him would be so nice.

Got a letter today from my Son.  I thought I would share that he said he is glad his division is like a brotherhood, he wouldn't make it if they weren't.  Their motto is "One Division, One Family".  Awesome!!

got another letter

Thank you, moms, wives, or significant others who have SRs that are older who took the younger ones under their wings, he said 2 already have their Bachelor Degrees and gave him good advice both from his DIV, he sounded like he do like his DIV.

Anyone with a SR in 369 with a last name that starts with "U"?

Hello All,

Please join me to pray for our SRs as they are getting closer to their big final test as a group..On reading the article and observation from the previous PIR groups, we might get the call as early as next week, per article they can start as early as this sunday on.. from the lowest DIV and up. So have your phone handy at all times and get that volume crank up for that (847#) still makes me nervous when i see that number flash on my screen hoping it's good news. GOD Bless our SRs!!! Hooyah to all

Cuptain's cup should be the following saturday after that

(Please correct me if i am wrong)

Thanks for the heads up.  So far I've missed both calls he got to make.  I'm going to try to have the phone with me in my pocket all week.

Hello all,

Hope everyone are safe tonight!

Got a letter dated 10/28/12, did not mention when is the big day but he said definitely will call sometime this week. He gave the day to expect his call.. then see me in two weeks..(now 8days) Hooyah!!!

Received a letter today written on Sunday, Oct 28. Did not mention the big day. Had tear gas on Friday (said that was like sticking your face in a bucket of Fire in the Hole sauce from Pluckers) and this week would include final tests and inspections. Possible calls home on Thursday or Friday if the division did well. No promises.


We've almost made it through this thing!!!!!  Hang on everyone.

Our calls will be coming soon also.  ATXmom I have faith in this division that all will go great!!


I got a letter from my son yesterday.  He says if his division does well (370) then he will get to make calls tomorrow afternoon.  I'm crossing my fingers.

just got a call from my SR, so get your phone handy if you did not get the call yet, not for their big day. but just to hear him is precious..

My Son's Girlfriend just got a call from him.  It wasn't the "I'm a Sailor" call, that call he will make to me :-)
