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 367 & 368.

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!!!

Hey y'all I'm new to the site, but I love it. My daughter Peyt is on Ship 14 Division 368. We're from Texas. And I miss her sooo much! I'm so excited to meet all of you and to see them graduate.

Hi Shirley - my daughter is also on Ship 14 Div 368 and we are from Texas !!!  She's mentioned that she's made some friends, we'll soon know whether our daughters are friends.  Where are you staying for PIR?  I'm still researching hotels.

We are staying at the Marriott. The rates were pretty reasonable. I'm so excited!! I know you are too! We'll have to meet when we're there. I hope that our daughters are friends.

I'm leaning towards the Hampton Inn.  I like the price.  I'm waiting to hear back from an old friend who lives in Chicago to see if she will be joining me.  Our family couldn't afford for all of us to attend so I'm coming alone.  I'm SO excited to see my daughter again, it's been a long 2 months !!!

Yes it has, I can't wait to see her. Our's will be short because she leaves early the next morning for school in San Antonio. But at least she will be closer....

OH that's great !!!  Unfortunately, my daughter is remaining in Great Lakes, but fortunately, that means that she should have more time to spend with me that weekend.  She doesn't know for sure but thinks that she will have Liberty Saturday and Sunday HooYAH !!!  LOL

Aww that's good, I'm glad that you can spend time with her. Enjoy HooYah!! Lol!! My daughter's dad said he got the parking pass today. So we are ready!! Now just waiting....
Heads up ladies just received the I'm a sailor call from my boyfriend in ship 14 div 367 you should get a call soon
Just got mine about 30 minutes ago as well! So happy and proud!!

I'm putting this up here, hoping that a RDC will get this request to the correct person.  My friend is a teacher at North Mecklenburg High School, in Huntersville NC.  One of her classes wrote mulitple times to a few SRs that weren't receiving any mail. Now that the SRs/Sailors will be moving the students would like to continue to write them - the students have become attached and are really bummed to "lose" them.  The SRs/Sailors are from Ship 14 Div 367. I'll be watching my email for any response - thanks for all you do!!!
