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".

Su:  Did you try Mozilla Firefox browser?

Comment by diannep 26 minutes ago

Su:  Just know that you can park off base at the train station (right past RTC)...and not need the pw for the gate pass.  Or take a shuttle.  Since you HAVE a pw but it is not working, you could try emailing RTC and giving them the info about your SR....PIR date, ship/division, and the pw you were given.  They may be able to confirm that it is the right pw or say it is not.  Not sure if they can give it to you or not if you have the wrong one....but worth a try.

Sorry about posting day of call I got excited and glad it was removed.

Zoey:  Congrats to your SR for passing the final PFA!

Comment by diannep 33 minutes ago

Zoey:  First of all, you will have a SAILOR not a SR at PIR....hooyah!

Secondly, yes, there is some time with you before your new sailor transfers over to GL A School....your sailor will have this info after PIR.  I'm not sure you can leave base with your sailor though...they will transfer as a group over to A School.  ellen will have more info on this since her son transferred over to GL A School.

Have to agree with ellen on the pw being given out by RTC.  The only reason I can think that could have happened is this:

If a SR was delayed in training and put in another PIR group....they family can email RTC with their SR's name, original PIR date/ship/division info, pw given for that date from the form letter....then give same info for new PIR group and they will email you the new pw.  That happened to my son when there.  But they would not give me anything if I didn't send them his original PIR group info.

Interesting NICUnurse. The RTC usually doesn't give out the password to anyone with maybe a couple exceptions. The recruit has been asmo'd and is now in a new TG where the password has changed. The old password and info on the recruit would be needed in order to receive the new one. The wrong password was given to multiple recruits when processing. Again, the old password and info on the recruit would need to be given.

The RTC is very strict on security, and would not be in the habit of giving it out at random.

Good news my daughter passed her pfa test on Friday! She did 64 push-UPS and 45 sit-UPS in 2 min. She also passed the running by 8 seconds to spare! Next week is her big BS event and then she will call me ***day removed per OPSEC*** for the Sailor call. I can't wait. We leave Thursday for Great Lakes! Does anyone know if after graduation ceremony if you can speak to your recruit because after ceremony my daughter has to check in for next command since going to A school.

In a Facebook group I'm in someone had the same issue they said to look up Navy Recruit Training command & message them. They had a new password in 30 minutes.
Comment by ellen0502 17 hours ago

Margie, No ma'am you cannot share the password. The only person anyone can get that from is their recruit. Sharing the password would be a security issue. Even if you are sharing with someone here on this website, you really don't know who they are.

Su, Ask your recruit for the password.
