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."

So glad to hear that some of you have gotten calls.  We are still waiting.  Of course, it's killing us not hearing from her.  I keep asking myself if her phone cards didn't work?  Did they not activate?  Was she too far down the line?  Did she not pass a test and therefore not get to call?  Anyone else not get a call?  Hopefully will get a letter soon.

I feel better just hearing that from you.  Thank You!

Got a call Saturday. We cried so hard we couldn't talk. It was great to finally here his voice. Still no letters though. He said this past Sunday was the first Sunday they could write, sooo maybe by Thursday I will have something in the mail. Book our flights today. The whole family is going. Can't wait to see him.

My SR is also 12/350 - Welcome Tashasv17. Are you also part of the 9/13 PIR Group on Facebook?

That makes me very nervous. My son is Ship 12 Div 349 and I have not received a form letter yet, but his recruiter found out he was graduating on the 13th and leaving for ASchool the 14th. I sure hope she was right. Because 7 of us have booked hotel and airfare for that weekend.

Hopefully will get my letter today.

Haven't gotten my form letter yet. Does anyone know if this ship and div. will graduate the 13th. Just got an email from a mom whos daughter is in same div and her form letter said the 20th

My daughter is Ship 12 Div 349 graduates on Sept 13.  Keep in mind if they don't pass everything or get injured that date can change.

Brysmom:  If your SR is in Div 349, then definitely PIR 09/13....unless, as Tracy said, your SR is asmoed (setback) for any reason.  Hopefully not!

We got our first letter from our SR today.  Now I know why she didn't call last weekend.  Nothing serious.  Was great to hear from her.  She is doing well, misses us & home & her dog.  I would expect that.  All in all she sounded very good and I feel much better hearing from her. 

Ship 12 Div 349 Yay for wefixit on getting her letter from her SR today... so glad it was nothing serious that you havent heard from her until now.

Hope all you moms get to read a letter today!

Have a great Wednesday!

Bummed...came home for lunch & my mail already delivered, no letter from my SR...always tomorrow!

I am sitting here waiting for the mailman, mail doesn't come until late afternoon!  Sorry to hear you didn't get one yet.
