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!!!

Thank you!

Received our first letter today from our son.  We're excited because the letter is actually very informative. He has always been "a man of few words" and my husband was afraid this letter would be the same way. Not so. He sounded very up beat, despite the fact that the multiple shots he received made him "kind of sick." He said the only day that wasn't very enjoyable was the day he arrived. He had to get up at 3:30am on the 12th to go to MEPS and didn't get to sleep until midnight the next day. (I'm assuming he means midnight on the 14th because he called me at 1:30AM on the 13th to tell us he had arrived.) He said the food is really good. One day he had a turkey leg and there is always salad available for lunch and dinner. He said the division is very diverse, with people from all over the country and he has already made new friends. He said they usually get to sleep around 8 or 10 and are up between 4 and 6.

Did anyone SR stated they probably with call you on this Sunday?? well mine stated they he will call Sunday, praying that I will get the call. Got my home phone forward to my cell just in case I go to church, but if I don't I hope the Lord will understand and forgive me.LOL!!!!!

But I am praising the Lord that we all got letters on this week. I just thank God that all of our SR is ok and is Bless and highly favored. I speak it IN THE NAME OF JESUS, I DECREE AND DECLARE THAT IT IS ALREADY DONE. AMEN I am prophesy right now over our SR, so excuse me.

They'll be able to call already? I wasn't expecting my boyfriend to be able to call til sometime in October. How often are they able to make phone calls?

There's got to be more than 5 N4Ms that have an SR on Ship 3 with a PIR of 11/9. 

Kwajmom I was thinking the same things we do have a small group here oh well not going to stop JESUS!!!

Amen and Amen to all the praises to the LORD!!! yes, hope and pray GOD will lead the others to our site. as this is now where i go instead of FB!! LOL!! i can't remember how i accidentally learn about this site myself!! I will keep an eye for sunday then..hopefully everyone is doing it the same day..and after church please!!!

I think that there are more reading this than commenting. It's probably like a FB group that I belong to where we have 60something members but only 10 regularly comment. The others are there, just more shy about putting themselves out there. I use to be like that too but now I've learned I get even more out of the group when I interact with the other members. Although, reading is fine too. :)

I'm a little late joining this group.  My son is one Div 370 and I plan to be there with his girlfriend.  Still trying to figure out how to use this site.
