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."

Hi ms ampi Im going back to the site now!! hugs
Hey Ms - I think your kids are the Performance divisions right?? Tell your rect. to tell all the other kids to write home and encourage them to get of N4M site. I did that with my son and some moms did find us!
Oh really Lydia? What do you mean Performance divisions? What ship and division is your sons best friend in?
You should have told me I just sent out 3 letters that was a very good idea!!!!!!! So far I have sent ovr 20 hope he likes!
Right... What is performance divisions???
Ms. Ampi...I've been told that these recruits will "perform" at PIR. That might be flag, gun r music/choir. I am SOOO excited to see what my boy will do. He does play electric guitar ,although I don/'t think that'll be part of the PIR performance...ha ha.

Are any of you making travel plans yet? Ay,ay,ay.....not fun!

Oh really..hmm my son does not play an instrument but he competitvely shot. I have never heard anything about any of this but I would just like to get my PIR letter even though I know at least you 3 other mothers have confirmed their graduation. I am sad not being told formly yet. He left NOV 1
We just got our "formal letter" today. It was full of information you most likely already know from this site. My daughter got there Nov 3rd. There was one little section for comments where she wrote a small note. We were starting to stress a little over not getting it also. I am sure you will have it tomorrow.
What is "Performance Division"? My daughter doesn't play any instruments either.
Unbelievable to me, my son, a five-year all state choir member and state contest gold medal soloist is not in performing division! He would most certainly have made it if he tried after years of voice instruction. I think he didn't try out. I'm going to respect his choice because that must mean he's got bigger fish to fry, wants a break from singing or whatever else. I'm a tinge jealous, however, of you performing division moms!LOL!
julied....what a TRIP!! I am from NH (Lakes Region area.) I moved to AZ in '89. We visit NH in the summer to visit family & friends..
