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 031 & 032

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!!!

Welcome to the discussion group for divisions 031/032!

Please remember to post general questions and concerns on the main comment wall!


I just received two letters from my son on Thursday so if you haven't received your letter yet, its coming!!!  I was so happy to hear from him!!  He is in Div 32.  He said he is getting used to how the military works.  Hurry up and wait!  Hope you all receive your letters soon!!!

My sentiments exactly! :D  My son said basically the same thing.  Still great to hear from them.

My son is ship 11 div 032.  He has met some really nice people he says.. His throat was icky for 2 times we talked but he says it was the shots they got.  He will be A school Nuke in Charleston SC for at least 18 months--not sure after that.  He says he will be glad to get sleep and a comfy bed!!

I made hotel and flight reserv. today--Hope to most of you at Meet and Greet

yay! my fiance is in division 32! Miss him like crazy and probably would start going crazy if it wasn't for this website!! :)

My son is in Div 32. I received his form letter early last week but I would really like to get a personal letter. It seems like time is going by so slowly. I also noticed how neat his hand writing was - I think the Navy insists their handwriting be very neat and legible.  I had to laugh when I saw the neat block letters.


My daughter is in Div 31. She will go to A school in Monterey, CA.

My daughter is also in Div 031. I have not recvd anything but her box and the form letter. I have sent her phone cards and letters everyday. I miss her.

I am so excited to find another mother with a daughter in DIV 31. i am so desperate to hear from my daughter....a call or a letter anything would be great. I know they are very busy.
Has anyone received a letter yet? I am so anxious to hear from her as I am sure all of you are.

My last letter was from my daughter postmarked 19 November. Have not heard anything since. I wish I did though.

My son is in division 32.
We have our plane tickets, rental car, and hotel.

We have received the form letter, but that's it. When do they get to write or phone home? This is the longest that I have been away from him for his entire life.
