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 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".

RayaProudNavyMom  -  Good luck to your sailor with the rest of his time at "A" school.  I hope he'll be stationed at his first choice.

Haven't been on the website for awhile...good to hear the news about everyone's sailors "A" schools.  Good luck to all of them.  It's hard to believe the time has flown by, and we're almost at August.

Hi Deedee - 

Congratulations on your new grandson!!  You must be so happy!   I'll keep my fingers crossed that your son gets stationed in San Diego.  That would be wonderful for you all.

Hello everyone, hope all is well with your Sailor's. Talked to my son and he will Graduate A-School August 22. He is not sure if he will get Strand if he does he will have to stay in A-School an extra 3 weeks for more schooling... BOO!!! I want to see my son. He still has not made his wish list. So he does not know where he will be stationed at.

Happy 4th of July to all of my Navy sisters! This is our first holiday that we will celebrate with our new official sailors. Although they are scattered now as they continue their journey, I'm sure they will have a special bond as well because of the road we all traveled to be a part of the United States Navy! I'm so incredibly proud of all of them & thankful for your loved one who chose to serve & protect our precious country. I will be face timing my sailor tomorrow for a celebration since our extended family will all be together. I hope all of you will have time together to celebrate your sailors first 4th of July. Happy 4th of July & God bless our country & loved ones! Hooyah!!!

SMB714   -  I'll keep your SR in my prayers.  It must be terrible having to wait.

He'll be on his way soon, there's no doubt in my mind.
