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."

Got a phone call on Sunday,just a 2 min one coz SR had already called home and spoken to her sister and found out I was at work!!She cried but said things were good and she had just got promoted to E2 :) She said this call was their manditory 3 week call?So I don't really expect to get another one until the "I'm a Sailor" call.Firstonesmom...haven't heard anything about PIR change...I think your recruiter is just having problems with his computer!!

Got a letter today...yay...a day earlier than I expected :) She sounded a bit down :( Getting shouted at a lot !! Said that the division is still not working together too well and the sister division is really loud!!! They didn't do too well on a test/inspection so they didn't get a flag!!!:( She did get a promotion to E2,but all in all I think things are ok.Hanging in there...only 29 days to go...yay :)

my girlfriend is in ship 11 div 352. does anyone know how long they have between graduation and the time they leave for A school?

Good luck to all of your SR's!!!! It was nice talking to all of you!!
Just a heads up on ribbon orders. If you have already ordered ribbons to wear to PIR for this PIR group and have made your payment your ribbons were shipped this morning so be watching the mail for those. Stalking the mail man is advised lol. Please let me know what you think of them when they arrive. I know you will wear them proudly to PIR :-) Have a wonderful weekend everyone. If you have any questions send me a message or friend request. Thanks so much for allowing me to be a part of your group and allowing me to make the ribbons for you and your families.   Lora
