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:

Omg! Just figured out how to view your comments. Sorry for the delay. Thanks for your support. I am feeling lonely nobody responds to my comments or posting. As for my daughter I think she had scare. She has never been allergic to anything. Just received a letter she seems to be adjusting well & is in good spirits.... she said she often gets into trouble for laughing. As for A school I believe she is going to Texas for dental assistant training. She left with 1 semester to graduated from college as a hygienist. Again thank you for your support.

If they find that the allergy cause shortness of breath or is severe, then yes, it can cause her to be separated. If they find that it is less severe, it may require a waiver in order for her to continue.  (See and do  search for allergic.)

I see from your comment below that you are looking for other New Yorkers; check out NEW YORK NAVY-MOMS and New York Navy Family and see if either of them will meet your needs. BTW, comments on this Page are for you and people will only see them if they happen by.

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.

You have joined the group, PIR 08/09/2013 TG 39 - 13 Divisions (287-298, and 939), to connect with others with loved ones training with your SR.  Know that Divisions 289 and 290 are brother divisions and train together and will have Battle Stations-21 together, so look for others with loved ones in either division.  There is a discussion within that group for the two divisions. You may also want to join, or at least check out, Boot Camp Moms (and loved ones), and check out the Pages (found under the pictures of the Members), such as Arrival and What Happens at the RTC  and PIR Day and Liberty During PIR Weekend. Take care and blessings to you and yours.

I may have joined the wrong group. My daughters PIR is August 9th, however, she is ship 12 Division 289. Can someone please advise if I am in the right group? Also any New Yorkers,?
