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."

Hi N4M Admin,

I just joined the site and tried to post a comment, but wasn't able to do it. Clicking on Add Comment in the Comments thread did not cause any actions. I tried two different browsers. Is there a restriction on my account or a waiting period? I hope I'll be able to add this comment.

Clockard and T-Lynn, we are so sorry that this took place.  There was an accidental deletion of a number of members in error during this transition phase, and while the info as you indicated cannot be retrieved, please know that the deletions have ended for now and special care is being taken.  We have privately messaged with you regarding this issue.  Again, we apologize and are deeply appreciative of all you have done and continue to do for our members.

I don't know who is deciding which members get deleted, but someone screwed up big time.

I just had to re-join Navy for Moms and try to find my groups. Aaarrrggghhhh!!! All my content, pictures, everything - GONE. I post on one group or another at least weekly. In what universe does that qualify as inactive? Recently I had been posting on my groups that everyone needed to post something if they wanted to stay active. How ironic is that!

I also just re-joined one of the groups I created so now I can post there, but I no longer have admin privileges on that group and neither does anyone else!

I had created a private group which I now cannot access! Not sure if my friends there will be able to "invite" me to join my group again.

When I joined Navy for Moms (the first time!) there were about 2,000 members. Yes, it was MANY years ago. I have spent a vast amount of time and energy sharing and helping others, and I've made some really good friends.  To be treated this way now is totally disrespectful. When I tried to log in this morning for my weekly catch up with my friends and saw that I no longer had an account, I felt like I'd been punched in the gut.

I apologize for the rant, but I really am furious about this.  Is there any way my content can be restored? How about my admin access to my groups? A little help here, please.

I am T-Lynn on the japan moms site and on the site Our Place.

For some reason some moms are being deleted  from Navy For Moms!!!!!

 I know of two from Japan moms and one from Our Place.

Hey the ones deleted have been here since the beginning of Navy Moms. this Navy for Mos IS our 'safe place" ( to coin a term).

What's happening? WE don't go to fb where all can see - we are here safe and with other MOMS, Wives, Aunts, etc that NEED because we are with all who know how we feel and can come here to complain - cry without someone shaking a finger at us.

 Please, help keep our Moms

Thank you

How do I unsubscribe to Navy Moms?

Hi Catherine - I joined this site years ago - I just don't post - rarely-never.

I come and read sometimes - when I have a little extra time.

I come from a Navy family - my dad was in for 23 yrs., my brother was in for 23 yrs., my son has been in now for 14 yrs. and just re-upped for another 3 yrs.
