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.

Please see changes to attending PIR in the PAGES column. The PAGES are located under the member icons on the right side.

Welcome to the Division Discussion for Divisions 163 and 164

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!!!

6 more Fridays til PIR!

I'm also counting down, can't wait

Yes yes yes!
Hi my son is also in ship 13 div 164 I'm worried that I haven't got his form letter yet when did you recieved yours?

Gina,  I got mine before the 2nd week.  You may want to write him and ask who he put on the list and what the pass code is.

We called his recruiter and they said we didn't really need that they said all my son needed to do is to tell them over there who's coming and be put on the list I am do frustrated right now I did mentioned it on my letters to him that we needed that letter to attend I can't even do any reservations right now specially when he mentioned that his division is getting in trouble all the time :( he's getting frustrated he said cause some recruits are not are not up to par in their division.

Gina, your son can tell you who he put on the list. As for the password for the parking permit I think anyone of us could give you that, except I misplaced my form letter :\ 

My husband is also frustrated with the guys who are messing around and "messing it up for everyone" but i think the goal at this point is to get everyone to work as a team. Those guys won't put the whole division back though. 

Can't wait! So excited!

I'm counting them down with you Gelly! Waiting on my first handwritten letter and phone call!

Counting down with you too Gelly! Also while I'm hounding the mailman!

I'm burning up the pages writing those letters.  Trying to think of something that he'd want to hear.  Got my countdown on my phone and I look at it several times a day.   (It is moving too slow!!) Hope to meet you guys there on 5/2.

Hey all! My husband is in Ship 13 Div 163, I heard from him the other day and he said things are going good! He said the RDCs are very nice but strict! He also said that he wasn't able to write a letter last weekend but hopefully will this weekend. He also said that they just received their letters that day (wednesday) or the day before, I can't remember. Hope everyone is doing well!
