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 349 and 350

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!!!

July 17th, she said they are super busy!  only allowed to mail out letters on certain days..  hang in there!  :) 

hi folks no letter today again I am sooo bummed

My daughter got to GL on 7/17/13, i have to until 5:30pm CA time, to see i got anything...5 more hours. Maybe they arent able to write yet... You know our SRs miss us just as much as we miss them! We'll hear from them soon! Have a great day!
Daughter on ship 13 div 349 no call or letter. It gets harder every day tring to be patient.

my son isshipn12 div 349 still no letter or phone call I am s glad I found you guys. I was feeling like I was the only one without a letter

My daughter is on the ship and div and I haven't got a call or letter. I would like to her from her soon as well as you guys would. Her recruiter told me about 14 days to expect anything.

Good morning all! Have a happy Friday!

My daughter shipped 7/17.  We received the form letter but still waiting for a personal letter.  My nephew who's been in for 17 years tells me they may not have time to write for 2-3-4 weeks.  They keep the SRs very busy the first 2-3 weeks.  My house is screaming of silence.  Can't wait to hear from her but will just have to.  Hang in there everybody!

Can someone help me as to what is going on in this div?? So far it seems to be the only ship without any communication from our SR's?????

I wish we knew why, it sure is frustrating! One mom posted this......." I got a phone call on friday and a call on Saturday . The call on friday was paperwork related but they let him talk for a minute and then Saturday we talked for 30 minutes :) And he called me today while he was doing paper work and said he would call me at 16:00 tomorrow." She has the same PIR as us different ship & div.
They were probably the last divisions to be put together? Some of the kids arrived the week before.

Hoping and praying to hear from my girl today!!!
