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."

We just made the decision to go up for Christmas just booked the Navy Lodge - since its close. Cant wait to see my son

I did get a call Saturday morning.  We got to talk for about 20 minutes.  He seems pretty good.  Still stressing about the change in his training.  I hope he can get it resolved today or tomorrow so he can have some peace of mind and concentrate on PT.

Well, I was having a great birthday and then to make it awesome, to see 847 area code and pickup the phone and hear Mom, Happy Birthday I love you. WOW just no words. So  yesterday I received my second phone call from my son. It was 28minutes of pure bliss. I was so excited to hear his voice. He sounded way better than the 1st call 11days prior. He is so thrilled we are coming out for Christmas Day. He said it is way cold to dress warm. He has a slight cold/cough. Mentioned many have been sick, but he is not that bad, he said  some who go to medical could be pushed back.  So far he is on track for PIR and will be carrying a  Flag /Stick at PIR. He said he as met some great guys in Div 059 ship 13. Some will be off to Texas with him for HM schooling. He is leaving the day after PIR - so we will have to go to airport to say goodbyes. He will know more when we see him on the 25th.  He so enjoys all the mail - said he gets  letters/cards about every other day. He is writing on Sundays. He said food is ok, doing a lot of folding clothes and making beds. They work a long day and he is ready for sleep at night. He is doing his best to stay focused but does miss us. It was a great call and I couldn't be prouder. (II didn't even cry) . So I hope all who are waiting got a call or will soon.

No letters in almost 2 weeks from division 060.  Anyone else getting letters?  Please share if you have any details about daily division life or info.

I received a letter from division 60.  My son says they are just preparing for inspections next week and they have PT 6 days a week.   It was a really short letter since its all the time he had.

Here you go, Division 059!!
