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."

soooo my boyfriend is really close with your son!! this is so exciting he wrote about Jesse in his letter, says they talk a lot! =)

Hi...I haven't been on here in awhile. Very cool! We will likely meet up then if you are going to PIR.
There are a few Meet and Greets the night before, so we plan on checking a couple of them out, I'm sure.

That's great! I am definitely going to Sarge's. =)

Hi and nice to meet you.  My son is in this division and he said at current he was assigned duty of Sectlon Leader- which I am not sure what that entails but he sounds like he does like bootcamp so far.  I am hoping all goes well for their divison and I get to see him soon.  I was absolutley thrilled to get his letter.



From the RTC Website:

Recruit Section Leaders (SL) (RPO2)

Section Leaders are responsible to the respective Watch Section Leader for:

  1. Supervise and assisting the recruits in respective sections.
  2. Monitoring personal cleanliness, military appearance, clothing care and watch standing for recruits assigned to respective sections.

thank you for all of your information and attention towards this website.



I am proabaly going to be staying there as well, not 100% for sure yet though,.,  My SR said that they have gotten mail once so far and will proably get more tonight or tomorrow. He did call today sounded tired but good and he likes his division. .  I am not sure why some of them might get to call, he did say he was a "security" call and needed to get some info about me. Anyway.. I am glad that the days are dwindeling too!



Hi everyone,

I'm so glad to have this site to talk with others that are feeling the same.  Thanks for all the support.  Does anyone know the telephone area code to look out for?


Hi everyone, I was just wondering what color you would like to represent our division! I believe pink and purple are already taken. =)

How about red for 07/079

Thanks Beth! I can't wait til our DIV gets phone calls! The other groups have me excited!

=) You too!! Can't believe we're halfway there!
