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."

Please note! Changes to this guide happened in October 2017. Tickets are now issued for all guests, and all guests must have a ticket to enter base. A separate parking pass is no longer needed to drive on to base for parking.

Hi Anna - My daughter is in this Div too but I'm still at work and am hoping to have letters from her today - we're under a blizzard warning starting tonight thru Saturday a.m. so if I have letters, it will be so nice to read and re-read tomorrow!

Yes!!!! Her letters came today! Great to hear how well they're getting along!

Yes I know my daughter said their like a family. That made me feel good.
I just received a call from my daughter... She doing great! Most amazing 11 mins. And then she was able to call my husband for 10 mins... Look out for calls from your SR's!!!!


My daughter is also in this Div.  I was wondering I noticed that most of the other ships have scarves.  Did you want to get one?  If so what color.  A few of the other mom's are on the Forum page on the NRTC website.  Come join us.

This is the sister division to 081, so the females bunk with the females of 081 and they do a lot of work together, but inspections and whatnot are with 082. Just thought I'd let you know!

Hi, there Div 82 - I see not many moms / wives / gfs have found your group!

I'm a 2x Navy mom. If you have any questions, feel free to connect / ping me and I'll help if I can. Meanwhile two things:

(1) Some of the divisions are choosing scarf colors. If you'd like to do this, I'm creating a master list to track them; discuss this and ping me, and I'll update the info in the larger group.

(2) This is approaching a hectic time for your SRs. A piece of advice is to ask your SRs for their Battlestations date. As soon as they have a firm date, they should mail this to you! You want to know this because then you'll know when your "I'm a Sailor!" call will come ;-)

Take care!

Hi - new to this group.  My son is in this division, and was wondering if we are going to pick a scarf color for graduation?

Hello wtrsfisher I'm ok with what ever.. I think it's only the 3 of us in this div.

There's a few more on the RTC FB - I'm a fan of navy and red letters - don't think it's been chosen by the others?  Or red with white letters since our sister division is 081 and they're doing red with blue?

I am okay with what colors you decide, just let me know

Ddd I'm ok with any choice let me know what u decied.
