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."

YAAAAAAY!!!!!! Got our first handwritten letter today.  So good just to see the envelope and his printing.  12/098 was in P-days for 16 days, so had time to adjust, study, and work out til the rest of the Div. were filled.  Hope to hear from everyone else when they get their letters!     Woo Hoo      Thanks, Debby

Hi Everyone!

Did anyone receive a phone call from their SR yet i was so....wishing this would be the weekend i would hear from him?

No call yet :(  I am keeping my phone with me everywhere.  Just wondering if he is going to call me or call his girlfriend.  Not sure if they can split up their time or not.  I feel 110% better now that I have my letter and I know he is doing well.

Just got off the phone with my SR he is doing well and sounds so mature so......happy! Proud Navy Mom

just listened to a message on our answering machine that my SR left while we were at work/school so the whole family could hear. He sounds so mature and happy as well! He also called his girlfriend and she told us everybody got to call! Time to go listen to the message again!

So sorry to hear your son is sick and in the hosp

ital.  We will keep him in our prayers.

Can someone answer this question for me do we get to see our SR's on Thursday before graduation?

I don't think we can see them on Thursday.  From what I hear the first time is at PIR. 

No. The first time we will see them is at the graduation.

Our son got his FIRST PHONE CALL at noon today!!!!  What a happy moment for him and the children.

Two weeks will be getting another one.



Does anyone know what week this Div is on asfar as basic goes is it week 3 or 4? I forgot to ask my SR when i talk to him last week.

Friday will mark their 4-1 day.. known a Hell Week.
