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 Division 950

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!!!

Good Morning Everyone!!!!

38 more days until graduation!!!!

Hang in there....we can do this!!!  

My son called me last Sun (he was able as he needed to get banking info) and told me then that his division (950) had their phone privledges taken away from them.  I still had a sneaking hope that they would have been stellar enough to get the privledge back, but no such luck.  Sigh...

Also, can you tell me what the meet and greet is?  I extremely new to all this and an very overwhelmed.  Thanks, Kathy

kathy:  Sarge and his wife put on a MeetandGreet the night before PIR for the families up for PIR.  Check the main PIR page, on the left and below, under Events for your date.....lots of info there!

Not sure if this is the group I belong in because I haven't gotten my letter yet...should I have it by now? My SR left on August 26

Hmmmm, MNMom....seems you should have that letter by now.  Is there anyone else your SR could have mailed it to?  They only mail out one.  Also, can you contact your SR's recruiter to get PIR info/mailing address?  Sometimes they have incorrect info, but this far along, I have to be believe it would be correct by now.

I hope we all hear from division 950 this Sunday!!!   I am already counting makes for a very long week!!!

36 more days!!!!   How is everyone doing??  I am better now that I can write but I still like the phone calls!!!  

Has anyone received a letter or phone call from their SR?  I have received one letter but that was last week.  I am hoping we get calls this Sunday.  I know "no news is good news"  but just wondering how the division is doing.

34 more days until graduation!!!

I got a letter from my grandson SR yesterday.  Didn't expect to receive any, but am on cloud 9.  Hope you all receive calls on Sunday.

I got a letter today!

Got a letter from my SR today!  He's starting to settle in and says he is actually starting to like it!  Yeah!  So glad!!!
