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".

If your sailor is staying in GL for A School plan on staying until Sunday evening or Monday of possible.

Your sailor will have about and hour after PIR with you before they have to go back to their ship and move over to the other side (TSC) for school. Sometime after 2pm they will be able to leave for liberty until the evening. They will also have liberty on Sat and Sun from approx 6am to 10pm.

A couple of hints to help make this site easier to navigate for you.

At the top of every page there are tabs, "Main", "Invite", "My Page", etc.. Clicking on anyone of those will take you to the main page for exactly what it says.

So, if you click on "My Page" it will take you to a page that shows everything about you on this site. Groups you have joined, your settings, your personal comment wall etc.

Clicking on the "Groups" tab will take you to the main page for all the groups on this site. Just under the tabs and on the left side you will see two other clickable links, "All Groups" and "My Groups". Clicking on the "My Groups" tab will take you to a page that shows every group you have joined on this site, and all are clickable links. Clicking on anyone of those will take you to the main page of that group.

Click away and soon you will find this site is easy peasy to navigate. If you get lost :) just click the "My Page" tab or the "Groups" tab to find your way home.

My son left 27 MAR, so we are anticipating that he will be in this PIR group.  We received his box today...waiting for the letter. 

Betsy, I had the opportunity in 2001 to be a 24 hour VIP guest on board the Stennis.  What an awesome experience!  My boys used to refer to it as "mom's ship"... soon we'll be sharing stories about "my son's submarine" :-)

Not sure if my son will be in a push division and be put in your group of SRs.  He is in BC now.  I will know when I get "the letter" soon.  If not, I will join the next group.  I did receive the "I'm safe" call and it was short. 

Comment by srwife928 on April 2, 2013 at 11:44pm
Same here, waiting on the official letter, but my husband did leave 3/27.
Comment by Patti on April 2, 2013 at 11:39pm
My son left the 27 th and we assume he will graduate that day waiting on letter

Hi!!

Welcome to your PIR group!

My son PIR'd in 04/2012, He is an ET so he stayed in GL for A School. He is currently attending C School in San Diego, and looking forward to getting out to the Fleet in July.

A few other veteran moms that will be joining to help answer questions, offer support, and give you lots of information along the way.

There will be lots of pages posted with information for you along the way. They will be posted as the subjects come up!

Remember there are no dumb questions, so ask away!

Fasten your seatbelts because the next few weeks will be a roller coaster ride, but at the end you are in for the best hug ever!!
