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."

Please note! Changes to this guide happened in October 2017. There are now tickets issued, and there are no longer parking passes for PIR.

Please see changes to attending PIR in the PAGES column. The PAGES are located under the member icons on the right side.

Welcome to the Division Discussion for Divisions 369 and 370

These two divisions are brother divisions and will be training together from the beginning through BS21 their final test. Your SRs, soon to be SAILORS, are becoming friends, and some of them may be heading to A School together.

Get to know each other, your SRs are!

Please still use the Main Wall of the PIR Group to post questions, and concerns, we “veteran” moms don’t always get to into the discussion area as often as we would like.

Every single question that is asked is important Every single concern is genuine Every single member is important to us We don't want to accidentally overlook any of them or you.

Hang in there!!!

Hello, my SR is 370, can't wait to either hear from him or to receive a letter,  I think I will be better when that happens.  We will be going to PIR, staying @  the Navy Lodge.  Hope to meet everyone there.

Ok my SR is in this group. It's so nice that everyone is so friendly on here, I haven't once see someone getting mad at anyone for asking the same questions over and over. That's what I love about this NAVY family, not even some real families act like this. Lol

Good afternoon ladies! Just got the mail, no letter :-( maybe next week...

My SR is 369 and I just got a phone call from him!  He was able to talk for about 15 minutes. 

Hello everyone - I just got a call from my SR.  He said they haven't been able to write yet, hopefully tomorrow.  They just finished Pdays on Tues so they just started regular training on Wednesday.  He said they keep getting yelled at a lot, LOL.  His spirits seemed good and just asked that week keep sending mail, that helps them a lot.  I hope everyone else gets a call today and that we will get letters by next weekend.

My SR is 370 and he called today!!! First time we've heard from him since the "form letter", and I was so happy!  He got to talk for 29 minutes...said he loves the food, and they get 12 minutes to eat from the time the last SR is served.  He said their unit has had a bit of trouble with people fidgeting during Attention, so they all got extra PT, but aside from that everything is going great!  He said he would not be able to call for about 2 weeks (after today), but will have time to write tomorrow.  Hope everyone else got to hear from their SR's too!

Wasn't it great just to hear their voice?  That was so wonderful, glad you got your call.

Absolutely!

My son is in DIV 370 as well...I got a call on Saturday and we talked about 30 minutes.  I was so glad to hear from him.   When I asked him when I would get to call again, he didn't know....so you are saying your SR said 2 weeks.   I am hoping too to get a letter this week.  

 

Hi everyone!  I just got a call from my SR!!  So happy.  Didn't think I was going to get the call tonight.

Smurfette, did you get a phone call yesterday??

Yes I did, I missed the 1st call and was so upset, but luckily he called right back.  I got to talk for about 10 min.  I was in the grocery store so I know everyone thought I was crazy standing there with tears coming down my face talking on the phone.  LOL  It was such as relief to hear his voice, I think I will be much better now that I have gotten to talk to himl
