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."

How do you know if your SR is in a push DIV?

Most who arrived on 8/8 will graduate 10/7. my son's division graduates 9/30~ a week shorter boot camp. 7 weeks~ not 8. not sure how this is decided. I have heard and read several scenarios.

Nice to meet you. :) 


I was wonderung why my SR date was so early, thanks for the info. Have you recieved any letters or phone call?

Hi Vonecia~ Nope, nothing since The form letter... :(

Can't wait for a letter or call! 

We have a FaceBook page for our division. We'd love for you to join us there! 

If you want to, just friend me on FB and I will add you to the page! 


PS~ I bet our SRs traveled together from Dallas on 8/8!! 

Hope your new baby is doing well! ♥

thanks, u bet they did go together. we more than likely saw each other.
the baby is doin well he gettin ready to come home just in time to see daddy's graduation.
how have you been since your SR left?

Awww! So glad your baby is doing well!! ♥ Doing okay... miss him and wanting a call or letter! you should come join us on Facebook!! ♥

Yep,.. i bet we were at MEPS together... What a long day! 

Wouldn't want to do that again! Too sad...

Good Morning Ladies,

Hope you all are well. I've been writing letters every other day to our son, I can't wait to get a letter or call to see how everything is going for him! I must admit I'm not sad he is gone because I know he is going to do great and I'm so happy for him to be on his next adventure in life! It does help though that our daughter went away to college 4 years ago and we didn't see her until parents weekend 2 months later! Did have some calls but she was so busy with it all, so it feels the same with our son. Keep up the positive energy to our SR's and have a great day!  :)

Hi Ranchboss~ If you are on Facebook we'd love to have you join our group there for 7/327. message me if you are interested~ :)


That would be too!

Friend me and i'll add you!

I wanted to thank you for the photo at PIR.  My sailor, thought that it would be silly to 'waste the money'  and that I should go out to 'A' school, when he is settled. He is the Nuke program.


Anyway the picture was beautiful and I could see him, the look on his face was great.  I wanted to thank from the bottom of my heart.


Does do you know what we can/should send to them in 'A' school.  Also he was not sure if his SR would change to FN?

I hope yall are great today
any new news with your sailors
