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."

Hello! My boyfriend is a nuke and in ship 02 and division 932. I though it would be nice to make a place for anyone else with the same division and/or ship to talk and share information! I hope I find some others(:

My daughter is also in Ship 02 / DIV 932! I glad you created a discussion for our group. I hope we have many more join us.
Yay! I have met one other so far, I'm hoping that she will join the group next time she is online. Her Husband is in this ship/div as well. Where are you from? I live about an hour away from the base. I am wishing for a letter sometime this week(: My boyfriend's mom won't show me the form letter...
I'm here :)  I'm sure you guys are hoping for a letter this week like me!!  I'm going to be out of town for a few days though, hopefully it's here when I get back!

I am yes. I'm pretty sad she won't show it to me, I know he wrote a message to me on the back because he told me he would before he left. I'm the one getting the parking pass though(: I really wish I could see what he said, I know its probably just "I love you and miss you and will see you soon", but it still means a lot. I know the gates open at 6:30am, and I have a hotel room booked for the night before and two after so I don't have to drive as much even though I live close. I will definitely be asking a whole lot of questions though I'm sure! I'm not entitled to any info from the recruiter even though I have his information because I'm not family or a spouse (we aren't making any plans like that until I finish my college) I know 100% I am on the PIR list though(:


I know I'm going to have to find a way to get my hands on the grad packet, I'm just going to tell my boyfriend she wouldn't let me see the form letter and to send it to me... I have no problems dropping off the packet once I have my pass and make copies. Plus, his parents are divorced and I'm stuck in the middle relay-ing information.

The letter said that the gates will open at 4:30am and that if you arrive later than like 7:45 you won't be allowed in, or something like that, I don't have my letter right with me.  It also said to prepare for quite the holdup at the check in.  I'm planning on trying to get there about 6:30 too, my 11 mo. old is NOT going to be happy camper... I will be loaded with TONS of snacks for my two kids to keep them busy and quiet!
Oh wow. Well I need to be sure I look pretty so I don't think 4:30am is do-able.. I think I'm going to leave at 5:30 and hope to get parked and to the lines by 6. Good luck with the baby, that will sure be a challenge. I'm just so excited to see my boyfriend again! I'm going to cry. My last night with him was my senior prom on April 29, it was depressing! He had to drop me off at the airport the next morning for a school trip. However, I guess that weekend I'll be returning the favor of sad airport time.
that's a good idea. I'm going to try and reason with her a little more when I go pick up my boyfriends dog from her to get him groomed and.such. hopefully she will come around. I've been with her son for almost two years, I just want her to understand I love him very very much and am trying to support him in what he does. if that fails, I will ask his sister to see if she will send it to her and I could maybe get it from there.
Did either of you get a letter yet?
I'm out of town today, will get home tomorrow, and I will be RUNNING to the mailbox.  I cannot wait to have a letter!   I've really been doing fine, I've just felt soooo mentally distracted until I know that he's doing ok.  Hopefully tomorrow!!!
I'm hoping for tomorrow as well, I will post on here after I get my mail! (:
No letter. I live so close to base I don't get it. Maybe their division didn't get to write? I sure hope you two had better luck.
Same here, I write one every night and send it out the next morning. Hopefully they will get a chance to write this Sunday.
