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."

Any one who's recruit is ship 2 division 932? 

My fiance is.

His recruiter gave me his address, I'm not sure if his PIR is June 22, yet, but I will this week.

There are random pictures of 932 on the Facebook page!  Got a glimpse of my recruit!  2 weeks until graduation!

Hey all! My SR said that they have flagged in everything they had so far! Also, I saw him in the pictures, he's carrying the division flag. =)

Yeah......I am so glad they have flagged in everything!  I am so proud of them - even if they are still a silent division.  Actually my son's recruiter told me when I told him about it that it would probably last until PIR!  If that's what it takes to get them to do so well, then go for it RDC!  14 days - actually less now!

Has anyone heard Battle Station dates?

What A school/airport form?  Am I missing something I should be doing?   We are staying at the Navy Lodge Thursday and Friday nights - have reservations for Saturday night also - but figuring we will cancel as we have heard that he will fly out Saturday morning to Pensacola.  We plan on meeting him at the airport at whatever time he gets there and taking his computer, cell phone, I-pod, and some civy underwear.  :)  We really didn't plan any reservations or anything, figuring we would do whatever he wanted to do.   I was told, though, to take a towel for him to sit on (since he'll be in dress whites) and a Tide Pen for any spots that might happen on the uniform. 

 Mumof4--good idea about the towel and Tide Pen.  I think I'll throw a lint roller in too, since our other son seems to be always using one when in uniform.  I was also wondering about the airport form???

I'm looking for BattleStations dates too....I have a feeling I know which night since the 900 divisions usually go on a certain week night.  But if you have heard from your SR, please let me know by friend request/private message.  I am keeping a schedule.
