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."

Best Xmas gift

Posted on December 26, 2013 at 12:00pm 0 Comments

Christmas Day, 2013 Today I was woken up with a phone call that came from Wisconsin. It was a call from my son. It was the best Xmas gift to me ever, just listening to his voice.!!! His division, was adopted by a Methodist Church, for Christmas Day!!! They fed them steak and lots of goodies. They have multiple phones and computers including iPads, and Xbox so recruits can have a good time and call relatives. It's a free day. Thanks to the people there, my son " feels nice to talk to nice sweet… Continue

I thought they started their testing at night and were at it for 12 hours.  What is your understanding.  I'm so anxious to hear he passed.

I'm super happy, just got off the phone with my SR. He has a really bad cold, he said they got the flu shot and that he was going thru the side effects of it. He lost his voice for like a day, he thinks and says it was due to stress. We talked for about 2 hours. He sounded a little sad, like up and down roller coaster. He said that he had a bad experience due to an rdc. Like the 2 day of training, they got their photo badge, and he did not like how he looked do he decided to cover it. Big mistake he said, rdc asked to turn it arround and walked away when one of the other sr in front started to smile, my son smiled back, she looked and pulled out the ORANGE card. Not good he said " I had to drop and do 40 push ups, could not complete it, then the neg verbal comments followed with tease, and still had to do arm circles which were easy, but that wasn't enough he was told to do. Squats he named it but I forgot what he said. And other more. He couldn't resist to them but he said he tried really hard, and was very embarrassing ßince it's done in front of all mates. But other than that he sounded like he was getting the whole routine. He said that they also,was given a job which was iron p.o which he makes a schedule on who will iron and it has to be for each mate to iron for 15 minutes. So on top of training he helps out doing the scheduling where he works close with the rdc that made him do the hard exercises. Laughing he said maybe so I wouldn't worry, that he was ok, and that she was hard, but that that was her job and she had to do it. Do he doesn't laugh at nothing like that anymore. He listens now. He said that they are kept really warm. A little too much. He says that they don't train outside much. He also said that they had a great meal for Thsnksgiving. And that two high end people came into there division to thank them and that that was a rare thing, that their chief told them that they should feel honored. So he says that days seem too long, but that they are all busy and it keeps him from feeling home sick. He also said that thier division is not doing so good as a group. Meaning their not pulling together making it hard for them. But that their trying to help. But that they just dont listen and it's causing all them to get in trouble. Example, when lights go off at 10 pm they should all be in their bunks but some are waking socializing with other mates. And they got caught once already. So he's afraid that they will get punished as a group because of that. He also said that he conquered his fear of heights, lol. He had to jump into a 15 ft pool. Laughing he said he thought he wasn't going to make it when he was up their. But it was either you jump or they push you down. So he did it. Going back to his cold, he did say that he would cough blood, and I asked him
To go see nurse, but he replied I really want to tough it out because if "I go to nurse, she will put me on day off, meaning no training and he just doesn't want to fall behind. Very concerned thoe. He said its a little and he thinks it's from his throat and not other. He did say that processing was long and boring. But all that is over with. And that next week he will have his 2 withdom tooth from bottom removed. Mandatory. That they found one cavity. If never in his life he had any cavities and the Navy found one Lol. He said the shots in mouth were aweful but nut as bad as the penicillin in the butt one. "LAUGHING" he was. He said he misses home and that it's really hard, boot camp. That their division is a fast passed he named it differently but that's what it means. They train for 6 weeks not 8. So that makes it harder. He also said that the bathrooms had curtains and not out in the open like they thought. But because a few fid not follow their rules and guidelines in how toilet paper should had been placed, they were punished and curtains had to stay up. So they had to go number 2 exposed lol. He said food was good. That they do get 3 meals but also t

Hi Proud-mom,

Sorry you missed the call. Our call came at 6:30 am this morning. I mailed him 2 letters and his sister sent him 1, the same day we received the form letters. He has only received 1 of mine. He'll probably get the rest tomorrow. We write all the time. Maybe you'll get a call tomorrow. I video-ed the swearing-in, and have watched it numerous times too!  It's all we've got for now!~ Keep us posted on the phone call!

Hey Christy, yes we are. And it looks like our sailors left in the same day too. I stood with them on 11/8 till the van took them to the airport. I have a video of them leaving. That's all I play when I think of my son. I feel so bad I missed his call. I work really late and he called at 6 in the am.

Welcome to Boot Camp Moms (and loved ones). I look forward to sharing this journey with you. Be sure to check out the Pages (found under the pictures of the Members) for information on what to expect and to help you prepare for PIR. What is your SR's rating (job/specialty) going to be? There are groups for most ratings and/or "A" Schools and knowing that will help you to better plan for PIR weekend. Take care and blessings to you and yours.

You may want to join, or at least check out, Boot Camp Moms (and loved ones) and PIR Reference Information. Once you know your SR’s PIR date and/or division number, watch in Boot Camp Moms (and loved ones) and/or at and join the group for that once it has been created. There will be a lot of great information and support for you in those groups. Be sure to check out the Pages (found under the pictures of the Members) and Discussions within the groups. Arrival and What Happens at the RTC within Boot Camp Moms (and loved ones) will let you know what is happening, but you will also want to check out the other Pages in all of the groups.
