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."

Good Morning!  Our daughter is in this div. and will be a CS heading to VA when bc is over.

Can I assume that we can spend the entire weekend with our daughter? She has not picked a "job" so she will not be going to A school. Any information you can give is greatly appreciated.

I know there's more of us :)  But good to meet both of you!

Hello! Looking forward to meeting everyone at the meet and greet on Thursday!

Have either of you gotten a phone call or letter?  I haven't, so just wondering.  I'm sure it'll be sometime in the next few days but the wait is hard.

I have or received a phone call as well. I received the box and form letter. My daughter left on 7/3/13
*have not.

Not me...trying to not be jealous...but getting a little hard not to!

My daughter is an SR in 942 and I have NOT gotten a letter since the form letter or a call yet.  I did see a post from a Mom of someone who started the same day as my daughter that she got a call today from her Son, but nothing here.  I CANNOT wait to hear from her.  

My daughter who is an SR in DIV 942 called today too!  It was wonderful to get to talk to her.  I was surprised to learn the 900 divisions get the extra duty of performing at their grad ceremonies and a couple prior.  I am curious how she landed that -- as is she.  It's not exactly her area of expertise, so she will be doing meet and greet in the stands.

Our daughter too!  I was bringing kids home from a Right To Life picnic...the phone rings, I see 847!  Pullover, put on the blinker and answer the phone ALL at once...and was like "CAT!!!!!"  So precious to hear her voice, what's going on, what's she doing, accomplishing...!  Yay!  So glad that this division got today to make calls.  And thankful for everyone that got calls today too.  That wait was hard but I feel my blood pressure just went down about 20 notches.  A good nights rest is what I'm looking fwd to. 

Hang in there!  I know they've been busy and I have heard of several that are given time to do one thing or another, but not both.  I understand how hard it is to have so little contact -- and for it to be so restricted.
