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."

Thank you for starting this group, it's nice to connect with other moms/family members/loved ones of SR's in the same ship and division as my son.

It is comforting to talk with you all and read others' posts! We booked our airline tickets today, can't wait to see my brother! And hoping to get a letter this week! :)

Thanks so much for letting me know that! This information is great! Can't believe they just started 1-1 yesterday, it feels like they've been gone for a long time already! I know those processing days can take a while though. :) It's great that you got to speak with your son! Here's hoping they get to make their calls this week! Thanks again, Iove hearing any news!

Okay good to know :)

Thank You so much for posting this. It takes a load off my mind knowing something about what my son is doing.

By the way, what is a PSA?

me too.. got a call from my boy today.. he sounded good... hooyah.. so happy he is in ship 02 div 927 and cannot wait until PIR!!!

and, he said he mailed out some letters... to keep an eye out for them.. said the food was good.. they are up early and he learned how to iron & fold his clothes... all in all, he sounded good!!!!

Our SR told us what aspect of PIR he will be performing in, so we can make sure to look for him specifically at his PIR and the two previous ones that he will be in. If you follow RTC on Facebook, they always post lots of pictures of the 900 division and a picture of each division entering the drill hall with their flag every Friday. It is a good way to get extra pictures of them before we get to see them on the big day!

I will have to remember to ask him next time he calls what he will be doing at PIR>.. he did mention that everyone in his division is over 6 foot.... unless I misunderstood him

Thanks for sharing so much info here. For some reason I just saw this discussion page. My son was really happy with the food too. I was surprised because he's so picky. Lol.
