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 025 and 026

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!!!

Hi JOJE!! Wow time is flying by so glad that the countdown is in the teens.

Are any of you going to the meet and greet?  It turns out we will be in Great Lakes since Monday I am so excited I can hardly contain myself.  I have to refocus myself when I am at work lol.

We have a to do list hopefully we don't forget much.  12 days to go I pray for safe travels for all!

What is everyone's final plans on Thanksgiving?  My SR wants to veg out in the room so I have placed an order for the whole dinner I want us all to enjoy each others company.  I have changed plans a few times...all I want is for us to enjoy each others company.


Hi HoneyBeeQueen.  My daughter and I will be attending the meet and greet - so excited!  I have changed plans and changed plans and changed plans.  I want to be flexible so my SR can do what he wants, but he hasn't given me any clues.  I've got reservations for thanksgiving out.  If he doesn't tell me soon if he wants to stay in, i'm afraid it will be too late to order a dinner to have at the hotel.  I'm booked at Fairfield Inn, but wondering if it's too far?

We have reservations at Sullivan's, but my SR hasn't called in a while so I don't have a clue what he's like to do for PIR or Thanksgiving....made reservations on Open Table, figured I can cancel after I talk with him during the "i'm a sailor call"...yea, but what do SAILORS like to do on liberty???? We are going to the "Meet and Greet" and I can't wait to meet all my boot camp friends!

Happy Saturday! Woke up to ice brrr. I guess Wednesday we will do stuff with our SR around Chicago then Thursday stay in. My husband says he is along for the ride lol since I'm the planner. I will put my name here on my name tag so you all know who I am....for the meet and greet.
Did you ladies get phone calls this morning? I talked to my SR he sounded great, says the division is doing great! Almost to the end of this road!
Yes I got a call too, sounds like things are going well
Hi ladies! I rarely ever comment but im always reading the comments. But i do have a question!! Anyone have an idea of when ship 14 div 025 is going through battlestations?? I think i might know, but not quite sure. If someone can friend request me and send the info, that would be very much appreciated! Thanks! (:
I've been wondering the same thing...
Hopefully someone knows an will be able to tell us.. I completely forgot to ask my SR on the last phone call!
Thats what i was guessing! I just wanted to make sure.. Thanks!(:

would you mind messaging me and letting me know? I've been wondering this now that its getting down to the end!

Message me too. I will be on a plane on Monday. Hoping I don't miss the call.
