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 Division Discussion for Divisions 057 and 058

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!!!

My SR called last Monday also. She said it would probably be the last call until before PIR. :(

My daughter did call last night kind of late she said she was adopted for christmas shansdad is your daughter ship 09 div 057 and if so do you know who she bringing with her?

No but my daughter said she was adopted I just wish I knew by who and congrats on being able to spend the holiday with urs and adopting her friend. Where will your daughter be going to A school? My daughter is going into IT and will be heading to Fl

Is the SR name Mallory B. ship9 div 57?  Oh if this is my daughter thank you so much from CA

tjsmom:  If you are looking for a good place to eat, try Lovells Restaurant.  You SR most likely will eat for free (sailors aftter PIR do) and we have heard great things from previous PIR attendees about the restaurant.   Here's the link to their website:

Anyone with an SR in 058?

Received a call today from my son, Ship 09 Div 057. He just recovered from pink eye which is making its rounds through the division. Everything else is good and on schedule.  Won't be long now!


Omg ! At what time was your call? Today is my SRs birthday and It would he a dream come true to talk to himm
Did he mention anything about "hell week"?

Hello everyone. My son is in Ship 9 Div 58 graduating Jan. 10. Does anyone know if they son can change the 4 people on the list? We were able to take his 2 sisters now. If they can't go to the ceremony, can they at least get on base or do they need to stay off base?

Yes, he can change those on the list. He will be given the opportunity to do so, typically about two weeks prior to PIR. make sure the names he submits match the names on the drivers license/IDs ( ie Robert not Bob). If the are not on the list they will not be allowed into the visitors center, which is where the check names against the list.

Our son just joined this Division, and we have not been able make contact with any parents from 58 here or on Facebook. How has the group been doing?
