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 discussion group for divisions 363 & 364.

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!!!

Tina, I heard from my daughter yesterday and she's great! Loves it! I thought I would never get a letter either. But now I feel so much better! My daughter is ship 11 division 363 too. She said send lots and lots of stamps.
I still haven't received a letter. I thought it would be here today.

I am Group just for Ship 11 Div 363  thought it would be nice to have a group for just our ship/div. Maybe find some of the parents of friends that our children have made . My Step-son (who to me is my son :-) ) is in this ship/Div. We are from Upstate NY, he will be heading to Pensacola, Fl for Air traffic control...

Hi everyone!!! My name is Lisa. My SR is in ship 11 Div 363. She was asmoed back 1 week. She was suppose to graduate on 11/2/12. I don't know why because i was outside without my phone. Ohhh  dummy me. She sounded sad. I didn't get another phone call yet.. Have you gotten any phone calls from your SR's. After PIR she is going to Florida for her A school..

Hi Lisa and welcome aboard. I haven't gotten a phone call yet and as far as I know no one in this DIV has gotten one yet. I'm sorry to hear she asmoed, but at least it was just for a week:)

Thanks for welcoming me.

Leahann You never got a call at all?

Thank you for the greeting!! Lets pray and hope today is the day for phone calls. ((((((HUGS)))))

No Lisa, I never even got the "I'm here" call. I got a letter last Thurs. and she said that she tried to call me that first night and couldn't get through. I don't understand why, since I stayed awake almost all night and it never rang. Getting the letter from her was a good day:)

Maybe It will come this week. Lets all pray for phone calls and mail!!!!!

Hi fellow son is Ship 11 Div 363...He will be going to Pensacola, Fl for Air Traffic Control however I guess this school is currently delayed so hes not sure what he will be doing after PIR..Cant wait for PIR...I have a few questions for anyone who may know(I a new to Navyfor Moms) If someone is a veteran it says they dont have to count towards your "4" guests....but what do they need to bring to prove they r vets? My husband and brother in law are both vets and it would be great if they didnt count towards the 4 guests so that 5 of us can come to PIR...





 Good Morning Codysmom.  I hope this will help you..Go to Boot Camp for Moms. In there is a sight for PIR 11/9/12. They will be able to help you..My daughter is in your sons div. She is also going to Fl. She is going for AO. Aviation Ordnanceman...

I got 2 letter's in the mail yesterday. YAY!! She sounds really good, although she was SIQ for a few days and 2 hours after they released her from that she got two wisdom teeth pulled. Not sure her total SIQ time but it I think it was around four days, poor girl. She got to go back to PT this past Monday I believe. 5 more weeks!!!
