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."

Hello to aoGIRL93,  my son is in that ship/div too! I can't wait to meet all of you at Sarge's!! I am sad because I have to hurry back home on Friday to a family member that can't make the trip but I am going to just appreciate the fact that I get to see my son graduate! My son is enlisted as a Corpsman so he will go to Texas for A school after PIR.

Aogirl, would you do me a favor and delete your last post about Battlestaions date? We've been asked, for security reasons not to post the actual dates. You can private message any of us with that info if you'd like! We have some veteran moms o n here that help us naviget everything and Diannep (vet mom) is keeping tack of all the info coming in about BS as well as tracking the grad group for this week. Our "guys" can't start BS until that group is through. I'm at lunch, on my phone, but when I get back to the office, I'll send you a private message with the latest updates!

o im sorry i wasnt even thinking!!! oh and um where is the "Sarges" going to be at?? i have seen at least 2 different locations for the same day :/ and i looked for that pdf and couldnt find it :?

Aogirl, click on my picture and send me a friend request, when you do that you can opt to send a personal message give me your email address in that personal message and I'll email you all the info for Sarge's! Easier to do that than to try and put it on here! :)

Ok, so we ordered DIV t-shirts, which were advertised as having the DIV flag on them. My daughter, as well as GNL's daughter, described their flag to us as having Batman, etc on it. The shirts don't. Does anyone have a reason for this? Did anyone else order shirts and get something different? The shirts are cool, but a little disappointed. 

MLDD, I had asked my son in a letter what his division flag looked like and this was his exact answer to me, "The Joker, two face and catwoman to describe our RDC's".  I got the shirts today and it is exactly what he said. When GNL described hers I thought maybe they are the same since they are brothers divisions and that my son didn't go into enough detail about it. But hers sounded similar to what my son said. Now I am confused. It doesn't take much for that! LOL! Do they have the same flag or is theirs going to be different? Mine is exactly what my son said but not like what GNL said.

When my daughter described the flag to me she said Batman, Robin, and Catwoman. She also said that they had 2 sayings on it (their most used sayings) something about easy day and F** up day. The shirts we got today didn't have any batman characters on them but they did have "Easy Day?" written on them. Not sure what's up. My daughter also ordered us shirts so maybe hers will be right. Or maybe they changed them for some reason. Maybe copyright laws wouldnt let them print the Batman stuff??

Here's the DIV 290 shirt that we got...

They are both great! Here is ours.

Ah man!! That is so not fair!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Where's my wine!?!

thats awesome!

9 DAYS TO GO!!!!!
