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 discussion group for divisions 357-358.

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 to post questions, and concerns, we “veteran” moms don’t always get to into the discussion groups 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'm still trying to figure out how to navigate the website, I am just looking for other families with loved ones on this ship and division with PIR of November 2, 2012.  I have really been struggling the last 2 weeks.  I have actually gotten a call from my son, just 8 days after he got to BC because of the security clearance.  It was hard because he sounded so tired and out of sorts.  I know the first 2-3 weeks are the hardest.  I am just trying to get through another week and hoping I will get a hand written letter soon.

Hi, my son is in 358, the brother division and they train together...He is my youngest only 17 and I went thru this last year with my middle son, so if there is anything I can do to help, let me know!!  Do you go on FB, there is a another great site if so that I can direct you to,

I have a facebook account and would love to be able to connect that way as well!  Any information would be greatly appreciated!

I will get you the link...hang on I'll be right back!!

https://www.facebook.com/groups/PIR11.2/ - here it is....join us it is so much fun.  TimsDad, join us too.  There are people on there that received letters today, I used to get mine on Thursday with my last son so I am thinking I will get one tomorrow..

Thank you!!  I am going there now :)

Yes I did!!  He sounded good...how about yours??  Mine is the Mail PPO now so he was happy about that...passed his PFA and Swim.  Sounded very grown up..he is only 17!! lol 

Happy Puppy

Love the dog!! :-)

My husband is in 358 and I just got 3 letters from him yesterday. One of them said he'd be able to call in a week or 2 (I think that letter was dated 9/17) so I'm hoping to get a call pretty soon here! Anyone else heard from their SR?

I got 2 letters yesterday from my son...he said this Thursday that they were supposed to make their first calls home!!  Keep your fingers crossed!!

Oh good! I was worried that maybe they were in trouble or something :)
