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 373 and 374

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!!!

Good morning! Can't wait for my first phone call!

thank you swimgeeksmom. Which division is your SR in?

Got a letter from my daughter yesterday and she said 374 is doing very well with everything they are supposed to be doing! Everyone is really starting to gel together.

My daughter is also in div 374 and told me the same thing.

We got our first set of letters yesterday from our daughter.  She wrote in diary style so there was several small letters.  It was good to read she has not lost her sense of humor.  She had me laughing so hard I had tears when she wrote "whose brilliant idea was it to put 50+ women in one compartment".  She said she was bored most of the time but that was going to change real soon.  She loves her division and up for what was to come.

My son is in Div 374, he also said they will geta call this Saturday the 10 as long as they do well. ;)

I heard they would be able to call on Saturday morning's from 10-12 but that certain amount of time is for the entire division to share.

We have run into a dilemma and I'm not sure what our options are. I know our SRs get 4 people in the ceremony--so that would be her Dad, myself, my husband and we have two children (10,7)--is one of us going to have to miss her Pass In Review bc of the limit? We obviously can't send our 10 or 7 year old to the chapel alone. Is anyone else having this issue and how are you thinking about resolving? Thanks in advance!

Are y'all staying at the Navy Lodge?? If so and my mom comes she will be staying at the hotel to watch PIR. I am sure we could work something out so they could stay with her.
We had to leave three home.
i got acall from my son, 373, and said he is well. the div is tops so far and said it is really cool how everyone is working as a real team now. He said he needs 14 more pushups to pas his PT. So I told him frie
nds and family will be praying. we never got the Form letter, so we are working on that mess. looks like a shuttle to the gate and walking in. nice to readll yhe comments from all you moms. blessings to all
We will not be driving onto the base as we did not recieve the form letter with the password for a pass. Is each pas a different password? Where can we park off bass? How far is it grom to gate to where the PIR is held? If it is more than a half black I will need to use a wheelchair so we want to be prepared Blessings to all. Thank you!
Ps. 139
