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 093 and 094.

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!!!

My son is also on Ship 14 Div094 and I am also a little worried! I am actually flying into MKE airport!

Hey there, we have an awesome Facebook group/page for PIR 02/08. Feel free to message/inbox me and I can send you the link to join us! :) We are there all the time to support each other and have some good laughs!

well I see there are more navy mom's and loved one's on this site. As time goes on there will be many more. Navy Mom's site has been a saving grace for me I thought how am I going to do this? but with all the other Mom's and loved ones going through the same process I never felt alone. I am counting down the day's. After they get to A school I think week 3 they can use electronics so they can scipe so communication will be back yea! As far as weather at GL I have heard they do a great job keeping the roads clear I just hope no problem with flying in. I live in New England so driving would take too long so fingers are crossed. We are having a blizard right now 12" so far and it is still snowing :( I miss my shoveling partner ...sigh

My family lives in So. California, we drive TO the snow. This site has been very helpful and supportive. Our young people are amazing to undertake this precise career choice. So proud of my SR, soon to be corpsman..

My son is in SHIP 14 DIV 093.  

Is your SR getting any letters.  Mine does not seem to be getting any.  His letter we received today said, Please write me soon.  I need it right now.


I haven't heard if my SR is receiving letters.  We only received the one letter.  And have sent about 20 between friends and family.  I hope the SR's are.  :)  

We have received 3 letters and he ask us in everyone of them to please send letters.


My son is 14/093 and I haven't gotten a phone call.
