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."


Please note! Changes to this guide happened in October 2017. There are now tickets issued, and there are no longer parking passes for PIR.

Please see changes to attending PIR in the PAGES column. The PAGES are located under the member icons on the right side.

We have another giveaway ~ compliments of JayDee.

She has 2 different NUKE MOM stickers - Red and Blue.  The red one is specifically for a MM and the blue one is a generic nuke.

This contest #2 will be for the BLUE Sticker.  (There is a separate contest for the RED Sticker. You can enter in both if you want.)



Just comment with your N4M screen name within this discussion and you will be added to the drawing.  I will keep the post open until the 19th and then I will draw a name and post the winner on the 20th.

Good Luck!

And thank you JayDee!

Tracy - Go Nukes!

I was talking with my sailors recruiter and she was saying the blue sticker is for ET Nukes and EM’S have a globe symbol that there isn’t a generic nuke sticker.  Is this true?  

Beansis - JayDee had a friend make these - the red sticker is the specific insignia for machinest mates.  When I said the blue is a generic sticker I meant it's more the "generic" symbol for nukes/nuclear - not really ET or EM specific.  It's just how he made them....


KayCee - love it, thanks JayDee


What fun!!! ~ Andrea

The Nucleolus says hi!

Proud Momma

Jaycee, thanks for the contest!

Thanks for posting this and reminding me of this site, after a computer crash, I've been working mostly with the phone and totally forgot N4M was here.

Update, my son qualified as a diver, quite unusual in a world of nukes.  His sup is currently underway, he will be back later this summer and then they leave for a deployment.  After they come back, he'll be moving down to prototype to teach and after that, who knows?   

Cybermom - thanks for the update - sounds like things are going well for your son!
