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."

So I received a letter from my boyfriend and he is wondering who's moms/gfs/wives that I know on here. In particular he wants to spend some liberty time with the "YN" of the DIV (secretary, office manager) I have a last name but don't want to give it out on here!

Hi everyone,  I am new on here.  My son wrote me and said that pictures of their dividion would be posted on the RTC facebook page.  A photographer stopped by their compartment (what is a compartment?) last week.  Has anyone seen these pictures?  I have no idea how to find them on Facebook.  I had the impression it was actual shots, not the wall shot posted previously.

     So far I have recieved the I'm here call and one other call.  I have also received two letters.  The next letter I send will contain a questionaire made my me for him to answer (I got the idea from another place in these forums).

     Looking forward to PIR.  I hope the weather cooperates, we are driving.  Staying with family in the area.

Wondering if any SR's are going to Meridian Mississippi for A school from our division 079?  Also did anyone order ribbons? and if so where do we order them from?  Hope we get a call soon


send me a friend request and I will send you the info for ordering ribbons :-)

What training day is this divison on?  For example:

Div 075, Thurs. 2/16, Day 5-3

no idea sadly, my bf has not said anything though I asked lol anyone else get a response?

Hmmm, maybe.  Remember, don't count yesterday.

075/076 are on 5-5 today and I'm almost positive that 079/080 are at least a day behind.  

Thanks for the info.


Is anyone here's son named Donnie? I don't want to say the last name because of OPSEC but he wrote me and he is hysterical, he is "BFFs" with my boyfriend. Just wondering, he said he is from Cali =)

Happy Sunday! I was wondering, I am going to Sarge's meet and greet on Thursday and was wondering who else was attending? =)
