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.

for
N4M's Community Guidelines
and
OPSEC.

~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 make your settings for your Profile Page "viewable only to your friends".

4 years in!  Still get chills every Friday morning.

Comment by Bobbo on March 20, 2014 at 1:03pm

Power, it is amazing, isn't it? What a weekend. I will remember forever the chills when that door began rolling up, the music, and our sailors marching in and past us. It was like some old TechniColor Hollywood movie from the 40's or 50's. Just incredible. Every graduation my son has had has been special. Although it was kind of weird that I just turned right out of the parking lot onto the Pacific Coast Highway back in mid December and didn't have to make another turn til I got to CP for the FMTB graduation.

One year ago this weekend was one of the most amazing times as we traveled to Great Lakes for Boot Camp Graduation.  1 year later my son is on Reserves Drill weekend practicing his Corpsman skills with his Marines and the "big guns".   The only way I'm O.K. with this is that I know they are all aiming the same direction - AWAY!

Hope everyone enjoys the memories this weekend and pray for their continued successes.  :)

doing well? hmmm, that depends on who you ask. Me? Not so well...but my son has been on a rocket ride since.

Thanks for asking. Hope yours and all of this class are doing well.

Comment by vacanita on September 13, 2013 at 12:49pm

hope all your sailors are doing well.

Comment by Bobbo on July 26, 2013 at 8:35pm

power0806, my son too.

Comment by power0806 on July 21, 2013 at 11:11pm

Hope everyone is enjoying the Navy!  A-school graduation was a few weeks ago.  He is now a Corpsman and waiting for plane tickets to move on to FMTB at Camp Pendelton.  I've seen a video for this and I have no idea how they all survive this but this is what he was looking for most of all.  Good luck to all our sailors on their training.
