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 047 and 048

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. My son is in Div 048.  My son is CS, he will go to Fort Lee, VA.  

Good morning, my son is in Div 047.  He shipped out on Nov 4th, we received his box the following Tues and the form letter 2 days later.  Can't wait to hear directly how it's going!  He is a Nuke so heading to GC in SC after BC.  Holding on for this crazy ride!

Good morning.  My son is in Division 048.  He also shipped out on Nov. 4th.  He is an HM so will head to San Antonio after BC.

Hi my son also shipped out on the 5th, received his box quickly and have yet to receive his form letter. I got his address from his recruiter. Anxiously and impatiently awaiting that. We live a littel north of Fort Worth and he is going to Nuke school after bootcamp. Nice to have a group to talk to.

Hello Everyone! My husband is in div 47. He is also a HM and will be heading to San Antonio after BC.
Hi. My son is Div 047. He also shipped out on November 4th. I am waiting on his box. Received the form letter. I'm very surprised it has not come yet. I live 45 miles from Great Lakes. He will be heading to Groton, CT for A school. MM on Sub.

My son also in Div 047.  He also shipped out on November 4th.  I got my box but however, I am waiting for the form letter.  He will be heading to Groton, CT for A school.  MM on sub. Good to know that he has someone going the same place he is.  

My son will be heading to Nuke school after boot camp... Have yet to receive the form letter or phone call... Still Anxiously awaiting...

Has anyone gotten a phone call yet?

not here.  I've been trying to see who's gotten calls & it looks like just the 900 div, I think ship 2.  I suppose they can't all do it in one day, maybe tomorrow or Thanksgiving, fingers crossed for that or a letter this week.

Was able to speak to my husband for about 15 minutes today. He said he's really homesick and really tired, but otherwise doing well. He was appointed as one of the yeomans. It sounds like their division has gotten in trouble a few times with their RDC because of some of the younger ones not following orders and they have had to do extra physical exercises as part of their discipline. I encouraged him to keep going and just help out the younger ones out. He sounded so much better by the time he was told to get off the phone. I can't wait for his letters to come and ultimately, for the "I'm a sailor" call.
