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."

DeeSailorMom - From what I have heard, no one has every been turned away from PIR. If your Recruit has a chance to change it, I would, but if not, I don't think

it will be that big of ordeal.  Are you from California?  i got a letter from my son today and he said one of his best friends was from CA. Would love to know

if it was your son. If you can, email me his name. I would love to make some

connections from the names he gives me to the moms on here. He also said things were really busy and they had three tests this week plus BS. He said the Blizzard was amazing!  Can't wait to here all of the stories!!

I spoke with my son's recruiter some time back because I have extra people coming  and he said he didn't think there would be any problem getting them in so even if you can't get a ticket for your nephew, it does sound like he will get in.  I think I read somewhere that the non-listed attendees would have to wait to go in until all the listed people are in to make sure there is room (brrrrrrr), though. 

Also, does anyone know if we are able to have parking passes for more than 1 car?

Comment by DeeSailorMom on February 10, 2011 at 7:55pm

I am praying for Div 080! I hope they stand strong together and pull through with flying colors!!!  They really deserve the honor, for all they've accomplished as individuals and a team. 

No letter today... I'm really disappointed. The last letter I sent my son, was a questionnaire of what he wanted/needed me to bring for him. I told him he needed to hurry and send it back so, I would get it in time..  and nothing. I know he's been busy... I just knew he would have time to answer those questions and get it back in the mail to me..

Also, I have a dilemma...  One of the guests that he put on the graduation guest list, won't be able to attend. (my daughter). This is completely last minute. I am now bringing my nephew in place of her. I've already gone through the mess of changing plane tickets...(boy was that a fiasco) and I'm praying my son calls me so that I can tell him about the change. However, I have read that No changes are made the week before graduation. Does anyone know if I am going to have to go through a whole nuther mess, to get my nephew through the gate at graduation?
