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."

Please note! Changes to this guide happened in October 2017. Tickets are now issued for all guests, and all guests must have a ticket to enter base. A separate parking pass is no longer needed to drive on to base for parking.

My son is in this Div, too. Can't wait for PIR!!! Did you know there is a Boot Camp Group too?
No, I how do I join it?? where to go???
Click on all groups, then scroll thru the groups until you find it or you coul type boot camp moms in the search box. That might help. :) Welcome, there are not too many of us, so far anyway that I know for sure.
I'm going to post a comment in the PIR & Boot Camp group about this group. Also have you read the 8-13 PIR Experience? Please read it, I'm going to suggest we change where our M&G is.
Wow...lots of very helpful information and tips/thanks for passing that along! Where are all the Moms for Div319 Ship03???
I also have a daughter on this ship and division, I received a 2 letters so far and no phone calls yet. I will fill you in.
So, along with the discussion about the M&G....If we were to decided to relocate the M&G I would be willing to get t relocated, but that would mean that each family would need to pay for their own meal/bill.

And on that note, I'm wondering if we as a division want to do something as a group to make easier to find each other....Pins, sashes, scarves, etc... but they've been around for a long time and each division is responsible for doing their own if they want to. It's not a necessity, but it does help you locate the members in your specific division.
You have so many options... different colored scarves, lanyards, sashes, t-shirts, hats, etc... get creative and think of something unique to all of you and work with the talent in your Div. You will be surprised what all you come up with. It really is just a fun thing to do to make each division easy to stand-out at the M&G.
my son is in this ship and div too. simply i think moving it to another location would probly be a good idea after reading the 8/13 experience. and we have no problem of course paying for our meals. if you want to arrange a place i say that's great, just tell me where and when.
Dorothy thank you so much for the imput. I think I'm going to start a separate discussion thread for this, it will be much easier to follow.

As a division we do need to decide if we are going to do something as a division or not? I don't care either way.
Was it ever decided if the M & G was going to be moved? I never found another thread?
Evening everyone! I got a letter today from my SR. He said the whole div did really well on a test, the average was 4.0!! Also this week is Hell Week for them. :( He said he wasn't sure if he would have time to write this week. :(
YES! Just got a letter yesterday from my daughter, she said they get a special flag for graduation since everyone did so well.
