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 089 and 090.

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!!!

Oh Joy!!!  I got a letter from my daughter today.  She is doing very well and making lots of friends.  She gave me a list of ladies that I "just have to meet" during graduation.  She says that her entire division passed their 1st test and they will be getting a Academic Flag.  She says they keep failing there bunk inspections though, and "Inspections(Zone) sucks eggs",  lol.  She says that boot camp gets easier as long as they are doing stuff.  I'm glad that are kids have each other to lean on and to push each other.  4 weeks left... 

My daughter is also ship 12 Div 090. My daughter did not tell me about that Lol. Hopefully my daughter has learned to make her bed the right way:) Are we allowed to say there last names on here my last name is different than my daughter.

Hello everyone, what meet and greet is everyone going to?

HI!  Has anyone heard from 090 in the last 2 weeks?  They seem quieter than just being busy with Hell Week 

Has anyone heard from their SR. Any letters or calls. Does anyone know when they do battle stations? Is there a specific day that they do them. I don't want to miss my SR call. Ship 12 div 089 can anyone help answer these questions. I know that we can't post the day but you can private message me. It would be appreciated. Thank you.
