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."

BQB..thanks for all the hard work you put into this site. It is VERY appreciated.

Thanks. be happy to listen - if I have time, I'll even make the changes.

P.S. I am stepping away from N4M this coming year, if you can pitch in that was be great.

The above groups are in existence already. Is there a group for Chiefs?  Perhaps you can start one. I didn't include groups with less than 15 members. I only looked for the groups w most members.
This group has "ET" in their description but I don't know if they have comm-radiomen too.  Good question. Let's both of us poke around and see what we can find - if we find an existent group not on the list, I'll update it - unless it's a group composed of 5 or less - I didn't include zillion of small little groups.
Is San Antonio the only MA "A" School?
Click on the file above, scroll down half a page, you'll see a bunch of A schools. Secondly, read the comments posted on your comment wall (click MY PAGE). Links have been provided for you to learn how to navigate this site. Good luck.
Thank you!


BQB, would you please add this to your GROUPS: Listed By Navy Job (Rating)



N          Nuke A School FAQ 




Will do.
My son is a PS (Personnel Specialist) but I don't see it on the list.  Is that something that could be added? If so, I would really appreciate it.  Thank you so much for the site.

Here is the link for the group.

I missed it. I'll add to the list. Thanks for the heads up.

Where did you find EN? Our son is an engineman but I couldn't find it.
