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 349 and 350

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!!!

i got a letter from my kyle today, I have been telling him about the parents I have been meeting and he said mom we don't go by first name and now they don't even use my last name ! i am a weapon PO, whatever that is and that is apparently what they call him ! so please offer me up the last name so maybe I can communicate a little better with him, thanks.  My son is Kyle P*(PERSEC & N4M Guidelines)

there is a boy there, I met his girl friend out here and he is Curtis G*(PERSEC & N4M Guidleines), but I was calling him Curtis, said too him a while to figure that out. Silly me

*(copied and edited to remove last name PERSEC and N4M guidelines) Last names are not allowed on this site.

thanks for corrections.

I received a call from my son this am.  Div 349 Ship 3.  He says all is going well.  Chief recruit petty officer difficult but wants to see it through.  He said his division did great on one of their ship

practices.  I can't believe they are more than half way through..  Excited.

Hi Ladies, my name is Debi. Son Dominic is on Ship3, Div 349 going to Nuke School in Charleston. Has spent summers in college since 8th grade going to Bio Chemical engineering programs. Last 2 years of high school also but focused on pre med. Nuclear Engineering is what he decided upon. Ok to brag alittle... he did score 97 on the ASVAB. His dad and I don't even begin to comprehend all the jibberish formulas he looks at and tries to tell us about. I can only smile and say Wow, that's awesome :) Love that child and so proud of him. He told me that he knows the 3 guys with him that I gave him their moms email names. He said they laugh often about us and being on the N4M's site.  He called Sat around 10am. So good to hear his voice and all I could do was cry... today again. Meltdown Monday I guess. Counting the days until we see him. Has anyone else RSVP'd to Sarge's Meet and Greet for the 15th? Looking forward to meeting everyone. To those going to San Antonio, lucky them. We spent 8 years btwn SA and Austin. What a great place to be.
