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."

Here is the link to Sarge's MeetandGreet for your PIR group.  Yes, his will be the best attended with the most info!  You can RSVP to it here on this link:

Thanks I did see that one too.I think I will go to Sarge's.That is if we get to town in time.

Good morning ! 16 days and 7 mins to go!!!

Not much longer

Hey everyone!! We are in the single digits now! Almost there. I can't wait to watch all of them graduate.

Hello Everyone!  I'm new here.  My son graudates 8/30/13.  He's ship 13 Div 321. I'm so excited I could bust!!  We are traveling to Chicage a couple days in advance because we used to live there and have friends we want to see.  I just noticed the Sarge's meet and greet.  I wish we could attend but we already made plans for that night.  I understand he has shortcuts on getting to PIR that will save time.  Does anyone happen to know what those shortcuts are?  We are having to drop my grandaughter off at a daycare center because we are one ticket short.  They open at 6:30 am but it's in South Barrington.  I really, really don't want to be late and miss the whole thing!  My son would strangle us big time if we did!!  Any suggestions out there?  Thank you all!

This message is for Navywife from div 321, my sons last name sounds like springler, message me in 327

That was a nice event.  I was not sure how close Divisions 321 and 322 were, but it was interesting they shared the same RDC Chief, and reportedly did a lot of training together.  It sounds like in the future there may be more RDCs per Division as the current RDC workload seems superhuman.  Our Sailor was in a good mood and the work they all put into the training was obvious.  "Anything is possible" was our best quote today.   It sounds like he will have a few buddies to go to A School with which will be nice.
