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 365 and 366

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!!!

Not today! But I usually get them on Wednesday so ill keep everyone posted tomorrow!
Yes I got letters today a day earlier than normal!

So.... Any news to share? :)


Got letters today! Good news first. They got the star flag! She says little to no hits. They did their Live Fire test. Thinks they did well. The bad news is my SR has shin splints so please pray. Hope you all get letters filled with lots of good new and information. Please share with us. Love to all.

Ok I'm one bummed mama! No call or letter today from Coedy! Anyone get mail from 11/366? If so, how are they doing? I really need an update anything will help!

I got 2 letters from my SR today. She's in Division 365. She says they are really coming together as a division, and she loves and appreciates all of them! She said that they have really learned to get along, and motivate each other.  She said that Pink Eye went around first with the boys, now the girls.  She's been in sick bay quite a few times recently. I guess she had an allergic reaction to something. She broke out in hives, they can't isolate what caused it.  Also, she celebrated her 18th birthday while in boot camp.  Everyone sang Happy Birthday to her during TAPS.  It meant so much to her.  She was allowed to buy face wash, hair pins and make up for her pictures.  She sounds so upbeat, I'm so happy right now!  I can't believe how mature she sounds in her letters! 

Well, one happy grandmother here!! In my letter today, my SR sent me a hand made birthday card!! About 14 of her ship mates sent me birthday wishes. I could tell from their comments that she had been talking about me to them which really made me feel special!!  ok now for all you who have loved ones in 365...Lightcap says "tell Mom I say Hi"; Mosier says my SR lightens the mood; Daley said she had heard a lot about me and I must be an amazing grandmother (Blushing with pride here);Patton says it is an honor to be shipmates with my granddaughter; Valerie W told me congrats on another birthday and thinks my SR is nice; anyway you get my drift.  I even got called Ma'am!  More well wishes came from Caswell(?), Ellie(Bubba), Nagel,  Isom,  Brousaro,  Green,  Duffell,  Ragan!  What wonderful young people!! They all had wonderful things to say and all made me smile! Hope some recognize the names and it makes you smile to know they made MY day!! 

I saw the pics but could not see my SR.  O well maybe next time.


I saw the pics. Didn't see Coedy but that's ok! I loved seeing the other SRs.

My Cody was in the pictures and it was so nice seeing my son after so long, I hope you get a picture soon.


Does anyone know when we will get the "I am a sailor call" from our SR in div 365?

I think all the battle station dates are listed on the Facebook page And the phone call would come the day after the start Of battle stations at least that's how my sons division works
