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."

Follow this link for OPSEC Guidelines:

Welcome to the discussion group for divisions 031 & 032

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!

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!!!

Thanks for this info. I was praying for a letter today but did not get one. It is good to know they did get to write and we should be getting one soon. Glad you got to talk to your son.

My son is in Div 32!  :-) 

Just a note about Ship 11 Div 032, my son, Alec.  He had to call last nite re: some info he needed for payroll. I only got to speak to him for abt 3 minutes, because I didn't want him to get in trouble.  He asked me to pray for him. He said it is getting tough now (vs. last week when I spoke with him). He did mention that the mail had just arrived and they were going to hand it out soon.  So our SR's should have received at least some mail from their loved ones and friends. (Hopefully, he got the info he needed for payroll). 

I just wanted to share with the Mom's, Dad's and other loved ones in these divisions abt the mail and the short phone call abt week 2.

Thanks ladies and gents...We need to keep each other posted. :D

Thank you Audra!  If I hear anything I will be sure to share as well.  Lots of prayers for our boys. 



still havent gotten his form letter with the graduation information. hopefully tomorrow and hopefully a letter :) need something soon. im getting frustrated. 

OK, so GOOD NEWS!!!! My husbands went to get mail today and called me to tell me there were 8 letters from our daughter. I hope this is good news for everyone and everyone hears from their loved one!!!!

Happy for you! I know how much hearing from them means to us. I was hoping to get something today but did not. Maybe tomorrow I will get a letter from my daughter. I miss her so much. Did your daughter mention any SR friends? My daughters name is Ashley.
Still no letters from my daughter and she is in the same division with your daughter. I am getting worried something is wrong and trying not to panic and remember that no news is suppose to be good news. Did you daughter mention there were any problems?
No grad letter, no letters from him and no phone call. Getting frustrated.

Yay!!!  I am so happy for you and your family..8 ltrs. Wow!  That is Super-Wonderful!! Congratulations!

P.S.  I have a dear friend that is retired from our Navy.  He was the one that trained the men/women that are training our boys/girls/husbands/wives/fiance'/loved ones....He is an honest, trustworthy dependable man and gave me some great words to live by.  So we all should feel confident that our loved ones will come home a better person.  If any of you want further info, feel free to mssg me. I am on FB Audra Edwards~ my sons last name is not the same as mine (for safety reasons).


Keep sharing..Let us know (if you can) how things are going there, when you get a chance to read your stack of letters.  :D

My daughter is in Div 31.  Have a son in a school in great lakes this have been very hard for me just went to PR 10/5 and will be going back 12/21 so we have to keep the faith that every thing is ok.

WOW....I thought having one leave home was hard....I cannot imagine what you are going through. Hopefully our daughters have met and they are helping each other through BC.

I really hope a letter comes tomorrow for both of us.
