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 email, phone, chatrooms, and message boards, and watch this video: "Importance of Navy OPSEC."

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 make your settings for your Profile Page "viewable only to your friends". Forecast by NWS

Thanks so much, diannep. I'm very new to this so I appreciate all the help I can get! (: I'm hoping that next I hear from him he'll have them.

Remember that the mail is held from them for the first 2 weeks of Bootcamp until the Recruit Mail Petty Officer for their division is trained.  However, they usually start receiving letters as soon as they can mail out.  It is possible that the letters they wrote to you were collected for mail before they received their held mail....and the held mail can take a little while to get totally dispersed.  Hopefully by the next time you get a call or letter, they will have received your mail!

Once the mail starts, they will be able to mail out on Mondays but will receive mail M-F.

Thank you mattymom, I'm just worried! I haven't gotten any returned letters so I know I addressed it correctly but he said other people in his division had gotten letters so I hope he has gotten them since the 9th.
Comment by mattymom on January 12, 2017 at 7:47pm

I also received a second set of letters, but she did mention she has not received many letters either and I have sent one every day. She did mention that starting this Sunday they can start emailing, so if you have not sent your SR your email...DO IT!!! My daughter is Ship 03 Div 074 PIR 2/10. Hope this helps!

Comment by Halle3833 on January 12, 2017 at 7:21pm
So I received my second batch of letters today and the most recent letter written on the 9th says that he still has not received any of my letters, I write everyday and I sent the first ones out on the 31st of December when I got his address. Is that normal?
Comment by Halle3833 on January 11, 2017 at 7:04pm
HildaR I received letters on Friday as well from Ship 2 DIV 914 hopefully you will get yours soon. It's a wonderful feeling!
Comment by CSW on January 11, 2017 at 4:22pm


You did a great job getting your son here. Parenting adults is 10 times more difficult than babies because now our job is to sit back be supporting but quiet and transition from parent to friend!

He wouldn't be here if you didn't do  A GREAT JOB to get him to this point.

Comment by WendyLP on January 11, 2017 at 3:52pm

My son is in ship 4 div 61. PIR on 2/3. I'm counting the days, I miss him so much. But I realize I need to figure out this "missing him" thing because he's all grown up and ready to see the world! Happy to have this forum.

Comment by ShawnMom on January 11, 2017 at 2:49pm

seabee53-How wonderful! I'm really missing my girl today and would love a stack of letters. Enjoy!

Comment by ShawnMom on January 11, 2017 at 1:26am
HildaR, I received my first letter from my SR in 914 on Friday. Hopefully, yours will come soon.
