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

Hoping that medical clearance issue is cleared right up for your new Sailor!!

In the meantime, here's the A school group you should join next:

Comment by Kari on April 7, 2015 at 3:21pm

SUNSHINE5:  I am in the same boat.  My Sailor graduated Friday but is on hold in THU waiting for medical clearance to be approved.  The waiver was never sent from MEPS so he is on hold for A School in Pensacola.  I hope your Sailor leaves soon as well.  He's been told it could take days or weeks.

I did a search under Groups and when you find a group that might be one you are interested in, be sure to go to Page 1 all the way at the bottom so you can see what the latest comments for that group are--not sure why a search just brings you to older pages...  Here is a group that I found for you~~

Happy Blessed Easter--Resurrection Sunday!!

     "Why do you look for the Living among the dead?

       He is not here.  He has risen!  Remember

       how He told you, while He was still with you

       in Galilee."
