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 Division 913.

Your SRs, soon to be SAILORS, are becoming friends, and some of them may be heading to A School together.

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.

Ok Ladies - after talking with my SR's girlfriend I think we had my SR's bunkmate confused - LOL  He talks about a few guys (by title only) and it looks like his bunkmate is the RLPO...but the AROC is one of his close buddies too just not his bunkmate...sorry for the confusion!  From what Nicks mom posted though, looks like all the Section Leaders have bonded :)

Hoping the new group will help a bit so we can use names.

Yes, that is awesome! Thanks for doing that ;)

Ladies- keep your phones in sight- I got a phone call!!!  He said they were allowed calls for the 100% inspections.  It was so wonderful to hear his voice- he sounded really happy

We got a phone call too!!  He said their division was 4.93 out of 5.0.  He and his bunkmate both 5.0 they got to call.  Hope you all get a call too.

Yes! I got a call too! It was so great to hear his voice!!! He has an injury though :/ He will find out Tuesday if its an actual fracture. If it is, he will get set back 6 weeks! :'( Praying that doesn't happen. He wants to graduate with the men he has went through everything with! Needless to say, I will be praying hard!

HOW TERRIBLE!  Oh, really hoping things work out.  913 is such a team, I can only imagine how frustrating that would be.

My SR is in the same spot.  He has a stress fracture in his ankle.  He will have an x-ray tomorrow .  Hope they both get to graduate with their group.  Keeping my fingers crossed for both of them.  They have come so far it would really be unfortunate to miss out now.

I am so sorry to hear that Peggy! I will be praying for both of our SR's! Praying they get to graduate with their group as well! I have to leave it in God's capable hands, otherwise, I may go insane worrying!  My mind keeps going to my son and wondering how he is handling everything...Praying he is able to keep his spirits up while he is waiting to hear news! Tomorrow is the one day I don't want to see the (847) area code!  Keep us posted on your SR! Praying for the best for them both!

Many Thanks K's Mom   I will be doing the same!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

K'smom- So sorry about your sons injury. We will all be praying it doesn't set him back

Thanks ladies! I will be on pins and needles until Tuesday! I truly appreciate your prayers!
