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 351 and 352

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!!!

HI All-

I am KevsMom (Carole) and we are from greater Boston (Boston/Metrowest for anyone familiar w the area).

We are looking forward to PIR and to meeting his friends and their other families. We have thus had 1 (brief but wonderful) phone call and 2 letters (second more upbeat than the first). He has mentioned that one of his buddies is from Houston, another from Tennessee and his bunk mate is from Wisconsin. I look forward to connecting. :-) Stay well everyone. son is in Division 351. We are from an area just outside of Los Angeles. I have received one letter and two phone calls. It is hard to get all the details in a 3 minute call, but it sounds like he is settled in and doing what he needs to do to graduate. We will be traveling to PIR. We are looking forward October 16th. It can't come soon enough. Also looking forward to meeting those in this group.

Hi Kevs Mom,  We are also leaving from Boston on the 15th on American Airlines leaving at 12:35PM.  I have received one letter and one phone call.  He is ship 3, div 349.  We live on the cape.  It will be fun meeting all from the group.

Hi dnn-

Thank you for your note!!  I think you are on Kev's girlfriend's same flight. We are leaving BOS at 1:00 and arrive  (Spirit Airlines) around 2:45.  

We have rec'd 2 letters, 1 phone call.

Where on Cape are you?? We have a cottage in Dennisport and will be on Cape prior to 10/15. 

Are you planning to go to "Sarge's Meet & Greet"?

I look forward to hearing from you. :-)


Hi Carole,

   I am in Sandwich and I plan on going to Sarge's Meet & Greet.  What town are you from?

Hello ladies, I'm Linda,Candice mom,we are driving from VA and staying at the Holliday Inn. We have received 2 letters and no phone calls. She is in Sh 11 Div 352. Her A school will be in pensacola Florida. I'll see you guys on PIR

Hi dnn01

We live in Hopkinton and have a little beach cottage in Dennisport that we just love. I look forward to meeting you !

Talked to my son in Div. 351. So happy to talk with him and hear about what they have been doing. I hope everyone hears from their son or daughter and has a great weekend.
I talked with Candice for over 30 min on Saturday. It was a sweet relief. She said she's doing fine. She still have to float. She haven't been able to do that. So her plan is to gain weight. Lol. She's looking forward to graduation. I received letters that Friday before that. Awesome
