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."

Ok question

I read that the div 804 had all of their flags,

Since my SR has not sent any letters since he started back into basic training,(lots of letters while he was recovering) What are the flags for?

 

 

I got a nice long phone call and a letter over the weekend.  Weeks without anything, and now all at once.....

Friday can not get here fast enough.

BS is done for 804. Hope you get a call soon.

 

they have done BS talked to my son a little bit ago. hope the rest of you get a call soon. come on Friday

Hi Everyone, I got my call today..  my son is now a sailor :)  He is so Happy boot camp is OVER!!!  & Really can't wait to hang with us!!  Count down is on!! =)

I think all of them are SO GLAD BC is over!!!! LOL   

See you all at the M & G..... 

Hooyah Division 804!!!  You all rock!

My son was one of the Body Snatchers for your Division  during PIR. We sat in the Div 912 area where we were told, and ended up not being able to see him at all during the ceremony.   If he managed to end up in any of your photos, can you let me know?

 

Thanks!!

What is a body snatcher?

Every division graduating had someone from Div 912 walking (actually side stepping) along side the rows to escort people out if they started to feel faint or looked like they were going to fall over from standing so long. No one from 804 dropped, but I saw at least 3 people from Divisions near where we were sitting be escorted out of formation.
