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."

Welcome to the Division Discussion for Divisions 311 and 312

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!!!

Received my first call yesterday from my daughter, Div 311. It was so great to hear she is doing well. She been appointed R-POC to her division and says that it's a lot of responsibility and she takes a lot of hits for it but she thinks she can handle it. So proud of my girl! Can't wait for 10/3!!!

hello my son is in divison 312 looking foward to seeing im at grauduation, this site is great support for all of those who have loved ones in boot camp, we rec. about  a weeks worth of letters, i laughed i cried great to hear from him

My daughter is in 311 and I received a letter from her today and she told me she hasn't gotten a letter from me in 2 weeks I send a letter or card every other day this makes me so sad!! Could they be holding her mail mamaimail mail?

Asharae, my daughter is in 311 also and she said she gets mail everyday. I don't think legally they can hold mail, they can only take away things that they aren't supposed to have there. That makes me sad for you and your daughter.

we finally rec our phone call from our son so great to hear his voice, he sounded upbeat, we also rec another packet of letters, it was like christmas!! God Bless all our saliors anf their familes, we all wait for days like this when they come no words just joy!!

16 1/2 more days until PIR!!!! Starting to see the light at the end of the tunnel!!!

Prayers for all our SR that they continue to be strong, come together as a division and lean on each other for support, also that they pass all their tests coming up!!!!

Good Morning "NAVY MOMS"  my daughter sent a letter saying she got her classification and instead of going to A school for 9 weeks she is only going for 32 days.  I asked her chief at her recruiting center what this means and he was very concerned that she was able to change her job...did anyone else have a change in their job??
