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 Rule (updated!) You are Unique Sally15.**

Dearest N4M’s Community:

As we gain 20 + members a day… I need you to be unique in your display name. Go ahead… and click on the Members tab and type in the Carol, or Karen, or Linda. Yeah… Crazy eh?

It’s tough for me and the community to tell the difference you and another person with your name- if you don’t make it unique. You end up being Sue13. (in your url).
You don’t have you use your last name. (Trust me, I only want you to share what you are comfortable with!) Heck, I encourage you to be creative. The more creative- the more likely I am going to remember you (along with the community).
And let’s say you read this- and you did a search on your name- and you didn’t see another. And you think- okay cool I don’t need to change it. But the thing is- just because there may not be another Danielle, Katrina, or Lilly now… doesn’t mean there will not be one tomorrow, or next week… or a year from now.
I feel like a bad mother admin sometimes when mix up my Paula’s and Darlene’s. So please… be UNIQUE. Because we all are in the first place!

From your Admin, Catherine MC... Maybe I should sign things CMC
