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."

Follow this link for OPSEC Guidelines:



**UPDATE 4/26/2022** Effective with the May 6, 2022 PIR 4 guests will be allowed.  Still must be fully vaccinated to attend.

**UPDATE 7/29/2021** You now must be fully vaccinated in order to attend PIR:

In light of observed changes and impact of the Coronavirus Delta Variant and out of an abundance of caution for our recruits, Sailors, staff, and guests, Recruit Training Command is restricting Pass-in-Review (recruit graduation) to ONLY fully immunized guests (14-days post final COVID vaccination dose).  

Specific information on this policy change will be provided in the coming days and weeks.

We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience and appreciate your support.

Welcome to the Division Discussion for Divisions 023 and 024

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!!!

Whoop! Whoop!  

Just got our first real letter!  She has not lost any of her sense of humor!  She has made so many friends that it was too many to list.  She said her favorite thing about BC is that she has found strength she didn't know she had!  Well, I knew she had it in her, but I'm her mom so..... 

Oh, she loved the "fill in the blank" BC questionnaire I found on here.

I hope all moms get letters too!

Hi Everyone!!  I finally found my way back to this page somehow, I am very computer challenged and my helper is away :(

My daughter is also in this group and graduating 11/27/13 and she too Is staying in GL for A school. Thank you to mrs. Peacock for all he help and "friend" request and to lemonelephant for all her help.  I got a call from my daughter tonight which she said is their last mandated call, the privilege to call home will have to be earned by the group from now on so hopefully they will all come together!!  I also rec'd 2 letters (finally) today, she said they can write letters on sundays and the mailperson just passed their test and now mail is finally going out so hopefully everyone will be getting those special letters soon if not already.  My daughter sounded good, she said the best and worst part is the ph calls home and the cards and letters she gets because she misses us all so much - 4th box of Kleenex down!!  I'll have to go shopping this weekend.   Hope to meet you ladies in Chicago!!!!!   All For One & One For All!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Hi Dora!  Welcome to the group!  That's great that your son is doing well!  It's always good to hear good news like that!

Well, today was suppose to be the day my baby girl got all 4 wisdom teeth plus an extra tooth pulled today, I hope everything went well and there were no problems and she came out of the sedation o.k.  I hate not being with her for this, the thought of her in pain and I'm not there to make sure she Is o.k. makes me worry even more then normal !!

I will keep her in my prayers and happy thoughts today!
