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."

Yes, it certainly sounds like they did get it together.  DIV 952 won the Captain Cup (all male) on Saturday.  More bragging rights!  Does anyone know how many other flags they have won; any chance of making the Hall of Fame?


Last I heard they won 7 someone else said 9 flags. Either way that's great lol
I know of 7 other flags they won, plus one for the captains cup, so that's 8 for sure.

Here is what my son's last letter said about the flags they have earned, made or recieved so far. The letter is dated Oct 27, so it is as up to date as I can get with snail mail lol

They have 2 divisional flages, one they are given and the Personal Flag they design themselves

Their ship's flag (USS Reuben James)

The Special flag that signifies what kind of division they are (staff)

The Compartment Readiness (STAR) Flag

The Drill flag

The Scholastic (S) Flag

And we now know that we can add the Captain's Cup Olympics Flag to the list as of yesterday :)

If you compare this list with the one in the Flags and Pennants page ellen502 posted for us the they are missing the Physical Fitness (A) Flag. I think if they can get that they have a have a chance at the other 3 that are listed: the Battle "E" Flag, the CNO Honor Division Flag, and the Hall of Fame Flag. I'm not sure if this is a complete list or not but it's all that I know at the moment. I will try ro remember to ask my son WHEN, trying to be very very positive here ;) he calls Tuesday.

I just posted a page about Flags and Pennants that can be earned by the divisions in BC. It is in the "pages" on the main page of this group. The "pages" are located on the right side of the main page under the member photos.

Our guys taking their victory lap after Captain's Cup at RTC. More pics on their site on FB! :)
