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.

N4M's Community Guidelines

~OPSEC OPerational SECurity, is always of the utmost importance.

~N4M’s also has Community Guidelines just like any other social media.

~Please take the time to read the OPSEC and N4M’s Community Guidelines.

~A quick note here, from the N4M’s CG’s:

• Don’t Jeopardize the Safety of Our Sailors: Remember OPSEC (Operational Security) (Don’t Sink Ships With Loose Lips) This site and all content posted on it are viewable to everyone on the Internet. This doesn’t mean you can’t share things about your Sailor – but too many details can put Sailors in harm’s way. The following are examples of red flags and should not be shared within this community either by posting or sending via a Group message:

• Sailors’ last names. This includes your username if you share the same last name as your son or daughter.

Some Suggestions:

~If your last name is different from your Recruits it is still not recommended for you to use in your username for your own personal security. This is your option. It is also not a good idea to use an email address as your username for personal security reasons.

~First Names and pictures of your Recruit are allowed but remember, everyone can see it and someone can easily match them up with their "mom". So you might want to consider changing your profile picture to not include your Recruit at least for the duration of BC. Again, your option.

~It is also a good idea to change your visibility settings for your Profile Page (MY PAGE) to "Just my friends".

Comment by NavyMom18 on Monday

I didn’t see anything yet on USPS, hope to hear from him tomorrow. Glad to know div 370 are going out now.

Comment by cowist on Monday

I just saw on the informed delivery for usps that I have a letter from my recruit. Hoping its the form letter. He is div 370 for any others still waiting for their letters.

Comment by loulou on Sunday

Scram, my son called a week or more ago in a scripted 2 min. call to say he was changing Divisions and had a new PIR date.  He did not give me the ship number though or any other details for that matter.  He has been gone since the 17th.   

Comment by Devoromom on Sunday

Hi ladies!!! I just spoke to my son! He misses pizza and his dog! He is Division 946. He shipped 7/23/18. He said that the whole first week, he was just waiting for more people to show up! He is in the “triple threat” performance division, but he is an extra. A “greeter” for PIR. I received his form letter on Friday and sent a letter through Sandboxx immediately. He said he received it yesterday. Have your phones handy!!!!

Comment by Navymum18 on Sunday

Hello everyone.. My son left on 07/30 and I've patiently waiting for his form letter to arrive. His recruiter had given his ship and division information to us but I was advised to wait until his letter arrived to clarify mailing address and might have to switch PIR group.  I know this silent communication is difficult and my phone is constantly by me. Finding this website 2 days after my son left for RTC was amazing. Everyone's stories have been so uplifting!!.  Miss my baby boy!.. :) Trying to get used do this new "normal".

Comment by Scram on Sunday

How do some of you know division/ship but have not heard from your recruit? I agree, the silence is frustrating.

Comment by cowist on August 12, 2018 at 12:43pm

My husband is in that same ship and div, he left 7/25 and arrived early 7/26. Haven’t heard anything yet. The silence is very frustrating. 

Comment by NavyMom18 on August 12, 2018 at 11:28am

cowist my kid is in div 370 ship 7. We have not heard anything yet from him. It is driving me crazy. He left 7/27. Hope we hear something soon!
