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."

Mik0991 - Our son is in ship 2, division 932.  I am in the same boat - his recruiter gave me the address also, but still waiting for the official letter.  Hopefully that will come this week - I'm waiting not so patiently.   Our son left from Lansing, MI on 4/24, got the box on 4/27. 

Hi, mine left from MA 4/24 as well. He chose to donate his things, so no box. 

Our son is in the same group I think.  He left from Lansing, April 26th, got his box on May 1.  We also have 4 children.  Now-both twins are in the Navy:)

Did you go to the swearing in?  Aren't they wonderful?  I was okay until they played Lee Greenwood's Proud to be an American....then I started to cry.  Of course, I cry when they play that song anyhow; let alone when my boy is leaving for BC.  :)   Are you driving to PIR?  We are - will take about 4 hours - not too bad!



Wooo! LETTERS! Is there anything that you would like to/can share with us? Do you know what day they started training?!

Yeah!!!!!   Please share anything you can possibly share!!!!  IF, and that's a BIG IF, my SR wrote, I won't get the letter until tomorrow in the mail - that's when I got the form letter, so I would assume that's when I would get anything he wrote!  Does he say they're doing okay?  Does he say they get along and are working as a team?  I have reminded my son in every letter to look out for the weaker guys, to work as a team and work together!   Can you tell I'm just a little excited to finally hear something from our division!

Hi Ladies! Just got my form letter and my son is Ship 2 Div 932. The letter stated his PIR is June 22nd. 

Hey, awesome, I'm still waiting for his form letter, but yay june 22

Got the form letter today - relief, relief, relief!  It was nice to see his printing on the envelope and the list of names for his PIR.  And, yes, it was nice to see the definite date of 6/22! 


Hi everyone! My son is on Ship 02 Division 932 as well.  I just received my form letter, PIR 6/22/12.


Welcome..... I wonder how many are in a 900 division?  Do you think they have as many as the other divisions?

I got his form letter today! =)
