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 Division 803 and 804

Be very aware when posting about your SRs who are in this division. Make sure you read the OPSEC rules (everyone should).

sjtina, cor and a couple more ladies will be joining this discussion to answer your questions about the "800" division.

Although your SR is still in BC, what they are doing may be slightly different from what the other divisions in this training group are doing. It is also recommended that you go into your "settings" (clickable link on the right side) and change your privacy setting to "private" and change everything to friends only.

Please still use the main wall to post general questions, and concerns, such as meet and greet questions etc. Specific questions regarding the 800 division should be posted here.

We “veteran” moms don’t always get to into the discussion groups as often as we would like to, and the ladies helping out with the 800 divisions don't always get to the main wall as often as they 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 ladies!!!

So proud of the 803 and 804 (brother) div. Keep up the good work!
Getting ready to pack the car and get on the road - ohhhh it's gonna be a long night but well worth it :). See you all tomorrow!!!!

Hooyah 803 and 804. The day is finally almost here. It wasnt too bad, was it? I will be hitting the road to see my own son and my new grand daughter in Virginia Beach for Thanksgiving. I will be thinking of you Wednesday and praying for a break in the weather. Dress warm, its cold in there with the door open. Your boys will be walking in last. When they walk through that door and are announced, the room goes crazy. The cheers and applause is deafening. I guarantee it will be a moment you will never forget. If you are able to spot your son, its possible he may spot you as well. Get to know those who are sharing the same path as your son and exchange emails and such. Each other is the best support you can get as the roller coaster ride begins. Buckle up, it can get a little bumpy. Remember "No New is Good News". 

This has been an awesome group and I wish you and your sons all the best. Please do not hesitate to message me or dragon if you have a question or just need to talk. We are always around. Hooyah

Thanks so much for your help and support Sjtina!!  It's nice to know others care, and those that have been through this.  Maybe others can agree with me, but, I feel like the roller coaster ride has definitely begun!!  I can only imagine what the rides becomes though.  We are in the area, and it is cold here.  Cannot wait until tomorrow morning to see all the young men and women as they graduate!  So exciting to hear about when these guys walk in last and the cheers!  God Bless you, and all involved in this journey of dedication and service!

Thank you so much! Safe travels to you and enjoy your holiday!
can someone send me the link fir Molly's adopt a sailor.. please post..I work in an elementary school. and they would LOVE to write the sailors...

I have a suggestion for those of your who would like to keep in touch on here without putting your being a part of the obvious groups, such as PreBuds. Start a private group and name it something silly or non related to your sons training. Only invite those you know from PIR or feel comfortable with. Keep conversations non revelant to training, keep that private.
