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:

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.

All of them???

don't want to prematurely celebrate.....
We have a Sailor too!  He said 67 are in his division - the way he talked EVERYONE passed.  He was so amazing!  He said, "Mom, joining the Navy was the BEST thing I have ever done!"  I am so happy.  He said he'd up since 6 yesterday, but that he was feeling great but tired.  Captain's Cup is tomorrow.   Are you guys doing some kind of graduation gift?

I got my call!! Im a Proud Mom of a Sailor!! Yeah Div 131 Rocks!


Yes they do !!!!!
Got the call too!  He sounded sooo different... We have a sailor!   There is a competition going on between the divisions but he said they did well and have a chance to win.  
My son is grad n go but to GL for A school.  He called and asked me to bring a list of stuff for when he moves over.  Said he could not get it until he was moved into A school which will be after the graduation (right after).  So Saturday I will give him his stuff.  I do not know about your son since GL is not his official A school.  Hopefully you will get a call and can ask him.  My son called last night and we talked for a good long while.  He was happy and full of pizza and wings.   It was nice to hear him.
My son wanted a cross to wear behind his dog tags.  Said he ok'd it with RDC's.  It is good as long as it is smaller than the Dog tags.  I got him one of those, I got him a bad a$$ Hull Technician T-shirt, Paying for the pictures, and I found him a Hull Technician coin (really cool looking)  Thought that would be a good idea to start his collection with the Navy.  There is a spot to engrave on it.  I will engrave the date of his graduation from A school.   Nothing special goes on at that graduation (so I have heard)  just another day.  So that will make it special.  Oh and I spent around $2,000 to get to his graduation from Boot Camp.  I am the best gift.  LOL   Unless I win the lottery that is about all I can do.
Graduation was great!  Spending time with my sailor was better!  He looked so good and seemed so proud of being a sailor.  I have to admit that I had reservations about him joining but after this weekend I know he made a good decision.   Does any one have pictures of Div 131 at graduation?   We were sitting in another area and could not see them or take pictures.

Hi Navy Fiance


Did you  check out the Facebook Site  under Navy Recruit Command?  They have great graduation pictures but not much of Division 131.  My son is in Pensacola. FL now and says things are pretty quiet compared to Boot Camp.He is working on his Watch certification.
