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."

Hi! Good job on starting the group:) I still havent heard anything yet from my son,so hopefully others who have will check in here and keep me in the loop :)
Strength and Love!!!
You should have received two letters but no calls. I found out why we haven't received calls. Hopefully we will get one this upcoming week. Thanks for starting the group here... There are very few of us for Div 266!
Thanks! Glad we have our own discussion group going. Seems like us 266ers are only a handful on here!
Take care and hoping for letters this week!

Hi my son is in this DIV. I have gotten several letters from over the last two weeks. no phone call. he mentioned why too. 

sounds like the just got through a really rough week. son sounded really down in his letters. he was excited to mention all the great friends he has made though! 

Is this group set to private so RDC's cant read what we write?

How do we set to private? I haven't heard why no calls... Whats the deal?

Hi, check with monkeymind (Ship 09/Div 255). her group is set to private.

The reason there are no phone calls is i guess early on there was some paperwork not filed properly by one or more of the SR's and a couple of failures on some inspections. The RDC's had never failed those inspections in thier careers so they are really taking it out on the DIV. There was another time the DIV had to sit there and watch everyone else eat dessert without them..that one made me laugh..but i know still serious for the DIV.


Hi everyone. Just got off the phone with my SR! Soooo good to hear his voice! He is doing well; wishing it was over but keeping his head up.


He said the whole division was in there making phone calls so I hope that everyone got to talk with thier SR!

It was so great to hear his voice, and he sounded good!
I got my call!!!!  He sounded good, and talked about the friends he made. I want to know if I met any of their moms too!
Got my call... Mines been sick. Heartbroken how rough and worn down he sounded.
So thankful for my son and the P.O. Allowing calls.
Praying harder than ever before....
Oh no! Sorry to hear your son has been sick. Hoping and praying he gets well soon. I'm so thanksful for the phone calls too. I can't wait for more letters and the next phone call!
Thank you and praying day in and day out. He apparently had a lot of dental done.
