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:



**UPDATE 4/26/2022** Effective with the May 6, 2022 PIR 4 guests will be allowed.  Still must be fully vaccinated to attend.

**UPDATE 7/29/2021** You now must be fully vaccinated in order to attend PIR:

In light of observed changes and impact of the Coronavirus Delta Variant and out of an abundance of caution for our recruits, Sailors, staff, and guests, Recruit Training Command is restricting Pass-in-Review (recruit graduation) to ONLY fully immunized guests (14-days post final COVID vaccination dose).  

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.


RTC Graduation

All I want for Christmas is to be with my Sailor! <3

Best Christmas ornaments ever! I can't even express how thrilled I was to find these. I literally squealed, I didn't know I squealed until the cashier came over and said "Everything ok? Are you finding what you were looking for?" Hahaha...I gave her a big hug and said "YOU BET I…


A boy into a mam (Revised)

It truly amazes me the difference I detect in our son now.  His sense of pride, commitment and courage are shinning through. We no longer have to be the ones asking all the questions and getting only one word responses. It's so refreshing to have him tell us everything that's he's been doing to include trials and tribulations. He was proud that he fills one of the Division positions of Yeoman (there are four positions, from what I understand) and he felt confident along with the other SR's…

Hi there!  Thank you so much for the BS information.  I am looking for the date for Division 039!  Do you know?

Hi SC, Love your blog & our SR is also much better at communicating with us too!!  It is wonderful to feel that we are sharing all her life experiences again.  Those teenage years when they were trying to separate themselves from us were painful - with all those grunts & shrugs :)  Evidently they knew all along how much we love them & truly care about their lives, thoughts & feelings!  We are getting letters most Thursdays &/or Fridays.  Hope they did well today with their physical fitness & weapons turnover.  If so, J said they will get sailor heaven again on Sunday for 2 hours & be able to call.  She also sent a little diagram of where we should sit for PIR - so cute.  Not sure about the guys, but for the gals talking seems to be their major downfall!  We're signed up to adopt her for Christmas.  She heads straight to A school w/o leave after PIR, but not sure if it's Fri/Sat or Sun.  We're at Homewood Suites in Lincolnshire on the 24th until ???  I'm going to check with Sarge for recommendation for Christmas dinner.  Also - 906 is performing tomorrow for PIR so hoping to catch a glimpse of my little trombone player in the front row of the band!!  Go Div 906!!!

Hi SC - for the info on the way last year's holiday leave was handled go to PIR 12/28 page and on the right column under Pages near the bottom see the link.  I think Sarge's M & G is on the same page under events, but if not, you can probably type it into search the way it's listed in your events column & it should come up.  Let me know if you can't find it.  Keep your phone in hand!  J

It was a very happy Veteran's Day for us!  We got a call from our sweetie in 906 around 8 am.  She sounded so much stronger than the week before.  I hope everyone else heard from their SRs in 906 too.  We signed up for Sarge's meet & greet on the 27th & found some very interesting info about how holiday leave/stand down was handled last year.  Let me know if you haven't seen that yet.  Keep the faith ladies.  Our kids are stronger than we think & we have to stay strong & positive so they can be focused right now & not worry about us!

Who knew when we had these baby pictures taken 17 years ago that she would actually end up in the NAVY!

Hi. I am sorry to hear you did not get your letter yet.:( I bet it will arrive in the beginning of next week. I will keep my fingers crossed for you. It will make you happy to see his handwriting even though its a fill in the blank letter :) I have been looking at pics on that site hoping to see my son. I want to see what he looks like in uniform :) I totally understand about the birthday, my son turns 18 in bc this month. Try to stay strong, we will hear from our boys soon and before you know it we will be hugging them at PIR :). Take care and let me know when u get a letter or a call. :)

Yes, if everything goes as planned we are doing to PIR on the 21st. My family is in IL and IN so we will be spending a few days there, hopefully Edward will be able to have a day off before he flies out to A school so he can see his family too. I'll message you my cell number before then and maybe we can meet up at PIR. I cant wait to see my boy :)
