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 have a nephew in Div 072.  I am a proud mom of a Navy Nuc (he PIR'd last December).  Would like to keep up with my nephew's PIR group this time around.

OK anyone heard from their SR yet?  Nothing here.

Nothing here as well.. Checking mail and keeping phone on me at all times. Maybe tomorrow something will come..

I am doing the same thing, I am lost without him....

My son is on Ship 03 DIV 072 and I have not got a phone call nor a letter from him, Did anyone yet?????

Nothing here either, but some other people whose SR are graduating 2/17 are started to get letters, so I'm assuming they got to mail them out Sunday, or at least I hope they did.

We haven't gotten a phone call yet, but we got a single envelope with 3 letters (dated late december) inside on Jan 5th from our daughter. She asked for stamps! She also said that she hand't gotten any letters from home yet. Hope you get letters soon. Can't wait to see her in Feb.

my son is on Ship 03 DIV 072 and he said in his letter to me that he has not got any mail from home, was very sad thinking we dont care for him.  I did not get a call yet from him.... any info u can share would help.....

what DIV????

  Got my first letters 2 days ago, it was very exciting to see that envelope knowing that it was coming from him. Waiting for phone call.

I still didn't get a call yet, and I hope it is soon, Hope my letter this week from him say's he is getting my mail now, because I don't think it is fair for them not to get mail from home...

We got our second letter today and he said that he just got my letters this past weekend.  So they will get them eventually.  This is soooo trying my patience.  He also said that if their division does well, they might get to call next week.  Keep  your phones ready!!!!!!

Ship 03 Div 072 calling!!!!!!
