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."

1 out 2.  My son is also scheduled for PIR on 6/29, however, he is ship 12/ div 203.


Oh, yes!  I'm glad you finally recvd your letter.  Wasn't it great to see their handwriting, even if it was Greek-block lettering!  Our SR's are in brother divisions and will train together and have battlestation 21 together.  As I understand it, our boys will do everything except bunk together.  :)

Yes, the Greek-block letter surprised me. I think they learning things so quick. I am so proud of my sailor.

did your sailor's letter say anything about the div changing to 201? JudyD I don't know nothing about any change yet. My sailor didn't write or call to me........ Keep update please......

We got our letter from our daughter and it is Division 202.  She was telling us about how 202 and 201 train together since both Divisions are co-ed and she had put Division 201.  So I guess our sailors are in the same group

I am from new York city. I am check about that too. I read that the best option for hotel and rent car is in the flyer information and air service at priceless. Well can find out tougher about that.

FYI....there is a facebook page for your division

Are telephone calls from our SR's made on a specific night of the week?

Hi All,
