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 307 and 308

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.

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 son is in 308.  A very good friend of mine who was career military said " if you don't cooperate you will not graduate"- appropriate words for what I have been reading.

Just joining in. My son is in 308

Sharon- will you be at PIR?  My son is in 308 also.

My son is 308 :)

Hi my son is in Div 307. He said many in the division did not get along and the group was constantly getting in trouble. I'm sure it's everyone trying to get a feel for one another. I told him stay focused, concentrate on what he was there to do. Must be very tough for all of them. They will get through this!

My son is in 307 also but I haven't heard anything from him and it worries me that he is the problem. :(  He's always been very outspoken and it has not served him well.  I hope it's not him that is causing the discord. :(

My son is in 307. He also said the division runs late often. He overheard someone say their division was one day behind 308. He also said he personally has to learn to do things more quickly. 

Oh dear.  That just doesn't sound good at all does it? :(

Just had a nice long conversation with my son. He said 307 is getting it together and things are going well. FYI

My son said the same thing.  He said there are some personality conflicts in the division but all in all they are doing much better.  I'm just thankful to hear that he is ok. :)

Got to talk to my son for nearly 40 minutes tonight. He sounds great. Seems to have made a couple buddies & has generally settled in. "Honestly Mom, this isn't nearly as bad as I expected". Makes me feel so much better. He's in 308 & his bunk mate is Jesse....anyone here Jesse's mom?

I got a voicemail!!  I had not received one letter and my son let me know that he gave his stamps to a fellow 308 sailor who had messed up his stamps in the washing machine.  AHH  I felt so good that he has such a big heart. So, I am sending some stamped cards for him to send.
