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."

I sincerely hope that no news is good news!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  I have  not heard a peep today.  Really hope that  they were cleared to finish with the group.  I understood that the xray would be today, hope and pray that was the right info.  They have worked so hard to get to this point.  Please let me know if you hear anything.  Thanks

Peggy - I have not heard anything today either! Been praying all day for our boys! Looks like they are working! I will still be a little on edge tomorrow but I am going to try to relax. I need to let go and let God! :)  Hope you are able to get a good night's sleep! 

Did anyone's _SR tell.them about a video that would be posted on here for PIR 1/25/13?

My SR said there was a video but I think it may be the video that can be purchased of the PIR - I know the RTC records each PIR for the families to purchase. If anything is going to be posted it would most likely be on the RTC Facebook Page.

Hello ladies! Just found this discussion forum recently, and I have an SR (my boyfriend) who is also in division 913. Read all your comments and I'll give you some info about what my SR told me yesterday on our phone call. He said that on the graduation they performed in, he seen groups of 5 people. So, if you're having trouble to pick and choose people, bring them anyway. He said that he hasn't heard anyone get denied entrance and they will probably just charge admittance. His mom, his cousin, and I are going and we're going to bring his two friends, we are going to see if they allow it. Hope this piece of information is helpful to you all! :)

My SR said the same...not sure how they pulled it off...Good luck to you! :)  Hope the friends can get in!

Because there will be so many divisions at this PIR it is limited to 3 guests.

K's mom.... sorry to hear about your son. Our thoughts are with you....Think positive....;)

Thanks!! I am trying! Gonna keep myself busy today and trying my best not to worry! I will be sure to post whether I get news or not by this evening - No news is good news!!!!  :D

I am crossing my fingers and toes for you.  Instead of No Whammie how about No Phone Call??

Thanks Girl!  Definitely praying for no phone call today ;) ONLY TIME IN THE PAST 7 WEEKS I HAVE PRAYED FOR THAT! LOL

We definitely do not want a phone call today!!!!!!!!!!  Just wish we had a general idea time wise, but know that is wishful thinking.  I am really beating myself up for not going to PIR!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  Love  the picture that a very thoughtful Mom took of my grandson.I have  not done much posting on this site or any site, but have done plenty of reading.  Love being able to keep up with their progress.  Plan on seeing a great deal of him when he gets to San Antonio!!!!!!!!!!!!Thanks for this site and the one that you started.
