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."

Anyone with recent news about our SR's Division?  I haven't received a letter in well over a week and it's driving me crazy!
Haven't heard anything as of yet, I usually get letters on Thursday.

I got a letter on Monday. I had gotten them on Thursdays. My son told me they were only allowed to mail letters on Sunday but the other day they were made to write to their Moms. So I got a suprise letter on Monday:-)! Kind of makes up for the phone call I did not get but was expecting. My son is also stay in GL for A school. My time is SO limited and I have not been able to look ove this site. Can someone tell what these ribbons are?

Thanks Debbie

They are PIR ribbons for our SRs. Find LaLa in our group she makes them for $5 I got 4 them

Hey ladies!  Hope everyone is doing great!  Three more weeks until we see our SRs!!!   


My PIR Ribbons came in today!  They are GREAT!  I definitely recommend ordering one if you haven't already :)

Hey guys!!  Check out my pic so you can see the navy ribbons I had made for my SR!  :)
They look great.  I need to get moving to have some made for us.  Thanks for sharing!

Hey guys!!  Got another letter today :)  Hubby says that they had weapon firing test(s) this week (how exciting for them).  They also have another very important test coming up (Test 2), so pray that they all do well.

 A little over two more weeks left :):):):):):)

Yeah on the letters:-)! Thanks for the update. Hoping for a phone call this week. BTW they stay in my prayers.So looking forward to PIR:-)!

Did anyone else get a call today?  I'm starting to worry that there was an underlying message.

I didn't, but I wouldn't make too much of it. Did he say how the Div was doing? He could've earned the call through an achievement or something like that.
He said that the DIV was doing just fine. Our phone connection wasn't that great and it was hard to hear him. He confirmed that Battle Stations was on the 21st and that they would call on Tuesday the 22nd.  He ordered pictures and said that they were $230. YIKES!  Oh well I did tell him to order them. :-)  He was confident that he would have no problem with the academic test coming up but since he had pneumonia he was still having pain running and still needed to pass the physical test. I found out that the call was just to find out how many of us were coming.  PHEW!  Twelve days cannot come fast enough.
