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!!!

I felt so bad when I heard they pulled my daughters wisdom teeth.  But it has made her that much stronger!  It's exciting to know our girls are in the same division.

anyone from this division get a call from their SR? 

No phone call here yet :( In her letter she said that she thought it would be soon but no way to know for sure. So far it looks like there have been about 3 DIV's that have received calls out of 12. Hopefully some time next week.

I keep telling myself no news is good news. 

She sounds so homesick :( 

33 more days!!

Wanted you all to know that my daughter just called!! It was amazing!! Keep your phones near by:)

What a wonderful day.. we just got down to cape coral to see our SR 's sister - and we GOT THE CALL!! So good to hear his voice - he's so up with beat.. of course I just teared up on pride and I think he did too :-/ what a great day!!

That phone call was beyond awesome.  Just hearing their voice.....I had so much I wanted to ask her and my mind went blank.  But hearing her was wonderful.

Hi Families of 363/364.  My Sailor graduated this last friday, 10/5, and yesterday when we were returning him back to base from his Liberty, we saw 364 marching. (Sorry 363 we didn't see them). My Sailor said "looks like they are about 1/2 way through." I asked him how did he know that, and he said because of their hair, and the way they were marching. I got on N4M today, and see that your Sailors PIR 11/9! He was right! Anyways, funny how they know that. Your Sailors, male and female, looked great! Sorry no pics, but I thought you should all know that.  They were marching across the street over by the building that houses the Navy Exchange store. Hang in there, before you know it, it's 11/9! If you need any info about PIR, I will try to help you out. Just a couple of thoughts, remember whatever you post on here, may be read by the RDC's out loud (I know that because it happened to my sailors div). Also, when it comes time for BS (battle Stations) don't post dates or any info of that nature. Respect the rules! Our PIR group made a FB page and that helped so much with information, so you may want to consider that as well, if you haven't already. That is a little more private anyways. Hope this helps:)


I agree with tracd93 midagirl. Thank you so much. It is pretty funny how your son knew about where they were in training lol.

Thank you so much for posting this information.  My daughter is in 364 and I am so happy to read what you wrote!
