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."

Follow this link for OPSEC Guidelines:

Welcome to the Division Discussion for Divisons 167 and 168.

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!!!

I know that there are several mom's with sons in this division out there. Anyone have a daughter in this division besides me?

Yes maria.rae.I do.Her name is Brianna

Hello Marla.rae,

I have a daughter in this group to.  I'm happy to learn that there are several ladies in the group.  I'm not sure how many women are in this group, but I'm glad to hear of a few others!

I'm pretty sure Miss G has a daughter also. you may want to look up name and confirm and then leave her a message.. I'm glad they broke this down even further it makes figuring out who's training with my son so much easier. I hope they are making friends within division. I try and tell my son been talking with so and so's mom. Do you know her/him. My son's name is Ian he's 19 from Virginia and will be heading down to S.C for nuke school for his A school. Hope all are doing well; waiting for that 1st letter now.

1proudmama, my daughter is Brianna from California.

Our son is 12/167, Dad part of the family here, but his mom drops in here as well. Still moving forward with the premise that "no news is good news." We got the box and form letter, just waiting on mail now.

rtarbaby your son was probably on watch when calls were being made this past saturday. Yes anxiously waiting for mail.

That was my thought 1proudmama, he is probably going to have my luck when it comes to work related issues. Every job I have had since turning 17, has required me to be on call. If it's extra work, I somehow end up with the short end of the stick. Like I have often told my son, on my way out the door, in the wee hours of the morning, or on holidays, or weekends, it builds character and work ethic. Perhaps he is beginning to get a little taste of that as well.

Anyone here with a daughter namedJessica who went to MEPS in Sac, Ca?

MissG & Vikiboo, I'm glad to see at least a few young ladies are in this group. I have sent you both friend requests. Hope to see you at PIR. It won't be too much longer..hang in there!

Check mailboxes (like you don't already), I didn't receive one yet, but someone that lives 5 hours from base got one today. She works but her mother let her know letter was in mailbox. Hoping you all get one today or tomorrow. Those that do receive letter please share any scraps of info you feel comfortable sharing with group. Can't wait till tomorrow! Good luck to those that live close by.

I  am stalking the mail woman :)))
