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."

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".

@diannep thank you! I can live without receiving letters for a while. Just so long as I know he is getting mine.

kimberlya:  This is the 6/23 PIR group so everyone here should have that PIR date...except us N4Moms veterans on here to help.  So get to know each other on here!

Comment by diannep on Saturday

sspaws:  It is very possible that he has received lots of mail since last Sunday.  If your SR has been gone 3 weeks by now, then it is very possible their mail startup was Monday.  If so, they receive mail M-F now but can only mail out on Mondays (collected on Sundays).

Hi Nicole! We are in Rockwall, TX. Welcome! When is your son's PIR?

MOZZIE our sons are in the same division
Comment by NICOLE on Saturday
We just got our letter. My son is in such good spirits, but is requesting letters. (Which we've been sending) Turns out my son got a job in the mail room. That's nice. Very proud of my 19 year old young man and SR. I really appreciate these forums. Keeping the faith and praying daily, not only for our son, but everyone's family that are really making a huge sacrifice and service of our country. ♡ from Texas!

Hi everyone, does anyone know if my SR could be getting my letters even though I haven't got any of his?

When I spoke to him last Sunday he was hoping to start getting mail on Monday. 

SHIP 02 DIV 933

Comment by MOZZIE on Friday

Have been worried, but FINALLY got the "letter" after three weeks! Son in Ship 03, Div 195.  Hopefully will get a call on the 20th...  Looking forward to connecting with other newbies!!

Stay strong Mommas!
