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."

Got a call today

Ready for PIR. Should be hearing next week after BS

Yeah!!!!! Got a call!!!!!!

We had a call yesterday afternoon but we weren't home. I miss him so much. I hear that this past week was hell week.  I know they are working hard!  Can't wait to see him and bring him home for a few days before he heads off to "A" school.

Yayyyyy!!! I finally got a call yesterday to. He said everything is moving great. He said today they were doing their fire training. He think BS 21 is on monday the 20 also.  I hope to see all you ladies at the meet & greet on the 22nd.

Thank you guys for starting this group! I didn't know if there were any other 906ers in our group besides me and Gaile. Does anyone know anything about the date of battle stations for 906? And where and when is Meet and Greet? Just think ladies... only 3 more days now. It seems like its been forever, yet only a minute at the same time. I can't wait to see my H for the first time since he left. It's going to be amazing. Good luck ladies and congratulations on your husbands and sons. They are almost sailors! <3

Hi Megan- Looks like Div 906 does BS Monday.  For the Meet & Greet go to the top of this page & click on the Events tab, it will come up in there.  You need to RSVP

I am so excited for all of us.  Hope to talk to my "D" after BS.  We leave Tuesday morning early. 

Gaile - where did you see pictures of your son at the 12/17 PIR?  I think my "D" was working that too.

Gaile I saw my son in the pictures too. They looked so handsome. I'm flying out this afternoon, so i will already be there when i get the phone call. See you at the M&G

Have a safe trip:)  They do look very handsome! 

My son was also in the pictures on Facebook!!  The whole family raced in to see him!  He had on his military issued glasses...nice...  WE are driving up from St Louis after our other kids are done with their finals. Safe travels moms, dads, wives, husbands & all other family members!!
