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".

Hi everyone I just found out that my RT is in division 219..So excited.

Wiffer:  Calls are very random....some in a division may miss their calls if they had Watch or an appt on base.  Try to have your phone "on you" at all times!

Comment by Wiffer peanut on April 16, 2018 at 7:09pm

My daughter 2 is in Div 230 but we did not get a call yesterday.  Any other 230's here?  Any idea why?

Comment by diannep on April 16, 2018 at 7:19am

Kbpoohbear:  That is great that he is doing so well.  

They take the PFA (fitness test) 3 times.  No matter what they did on the first 2, they must pass the final PFA in order to participate in BattleStations.  Of course, if they pass everything in the first two PFAs, it gives them great hope that the 3rd PFA will result in the same good results!  

Brother divisions train together.  So if you see someone on here who is in your brother division, you may want to friend request that person and share more personally by private message since your SRs are having the same experience!

Brother divisions start with odd number, then even number....i.e., what was mentioned below....225/226 are brother divisions!

Welcome to the new members of this group!

I just talked to my SR He did his run the first time. He has lost 10 lbs in 2 weeks. The only thing he needs is to shave 1 1/2 minutes off his run and his final pt is passed. He sounded tired but good. He said it's the hardest thing he has ever done.
Comment by NavyMomToLRA on April 15, 2018 at 6:07pm

Yay! The group is up. How exciting. My son is ship 3, DIV 220. When I spoke with him yesterday he said they are training with DIV 219. Can't wait to continue to count down the weeks to PIR. I have my plane tickets and hotel booked. Good luck to all the SR's!

Comment by Kbpoohbear on April 15, 2018 at 4:20pm
I am happy you got to talk with your SR. If what I read was true, he will get lots of practice. Stay strong

My son is in Ship 14 div 224. He called last night and boy the ladies were right! As soon as he heard my voice he started sobbing. He is really good though. He is a little worried about the run test. He is in really good shape but he said the reason is the air is really dry there and breathing during running is different than home. I pray he does it! I felt like I won the lottery hearing is voice. I was so ecstatic!
