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 025 and 026

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!!!

My fiancé is in 025! Hey everyone! :)

Welcome gnc2052!
Well everyone we are making Thanksgiving dinner, but if anyone knows who rented/reserved the meeting space and wants to have an all out Thanksgiving dinner for all of our SR's I am in.
Got letters from my son yesterday, he is excited about PIR has mentioned that sone SR's from this division may need adopting for Thanksgiving but will give me names closer to PIR.
Happy Halloween everyone and only 27 days to go!

22 days!!!

Exciting isn't it!!! Three weeks to go time is flying.

Yes and now we have 2!!

I just got a 30 minute phone call from my fiancé! :)

That is wonderful gnc2052 same here my son sounded great said that any calls after this one have to be earned. Also mentioned the division has really come together. I can't wait 3 more weeks! Are you going to Sarge's meet and greet.

I just got a letter from my SR, he missed the calls on Tuesday because he had watch.....bummer! He had mentioned that they had to earn the calls in his last letters so I was assuming that things weren't going too well but I was wrong, he sounds great. I'm so excited for PIR.

that is so great! I hope i have one in my mailbox when i get home!

I got two letters one yesterday one today although the one today was written at an earlier date lol. He said that the call last week was the last free call and any calls after that they have to earn them.  He also said the division is doing good and that they were doing good last week during hell week.  I can't wait ladies, the letter he sent yesterday he also included a prayer from him to me.  There is such maturity that comes through the letter.  He is the oldest of five and has found time to write a small but meaningful note to his siblings, well not all at once but throughout the last few weeks they have all gotten one. 

Time for me is going by fast yet slow I hope we get to hear from them soon. 

Mine is the oldest of 4 and I totally get what you're saying about the maturity thing. Such a great thing to see in letters and hear on the phone. They are growing up :-) Missing my 'baby' TERRIBLY. 12 days!!

Hi gnc2052!  Welcome....We received a letter today...sounds like the division is coming together!  My SR mentioned that they may even get Hall of Fame.  Wouldn't that be awesome...So excited to be heading to Great Lakes in less than two weeks :)
