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 Division 810 and 811

Be very aware when posting about your SRs who are in this division. Make sure you read the OPSEC rules (everyone should).

sjtina, cor and a couple more ladies will be joining this discussion to answer your questions about the "800" division.

Although your SR is still in BC, what they are doing may be slightly different from what the other divisions in this training group are doing. It is also recommended that you go into your "settings" (clickable link on the right side) and change your privacy setting to "private" and change everything to friends only.

Please still use the main wall to post general questions, and concerns, such as meet and greet questions etc. Specific questions regarding the 800 division should be posted here.

We “veteran” moms don’t always get to into the discussion groups as often as we would like to, and the ladies helping out with the 800 divisions don't always get to the main wall as often as they 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 ladies!!!

Hey Brian! My husbands going for diver, so as he said in his letter, for diver they continue A school at GL right after PIR weekend, but he wil check into his new school on friday of pir.... but will have dive prep there for 5 weeks,  I estimate done around April17- 20th.. then fly to Panama City FL for 3 months of additional A school... so possibly done around july 20-25... but ya can never really depend on the dates, since anything can change in a blink with military life... but its all an adventure!! 

Lisa do you know if they will have time after graduation to hang out like the other srs will? And thanks for the information :D

So from what I read and what my husbands been told, the Srs that stay at GL will have a very brief moment (10-15 min) immediately after PIR, but will have to report to be checked in at new A school, and to be safe allow that process anywhere from 2-5 hours... they should have liberty after that fri through sunday but be prepared that your sr will have to be on watch at least one of those days, ... seems like their watches run 4 hours... if I find the site again with all this really good info ill inbox ya

Lisa you're the best :) I haven't had a call from my sr yet so I'm a little in the dark right now, but you definitely have helped loads :)

So your husband is in my sons group? My son is also going for a diver. He says it is a great group and they have all become good friends. my son is the youngest one there initial DL . what are your husbands initials? my son says there is only like 2 men in the Div that are married so should be easy to fig. out. hoping to get a chance to meet at sarges meet & greet :)

Did anyone see their SR on the Armed Forces Blood Drive FB page? 

I saw my SR on the blood drive FB page! It was sooooo good to see his smile again. He looks really good. Warmed my heart!
