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".

I will be leaving the group too, jsut wish there was a better group to join for Corry Station. the only one I have has few members and no one seems to visit there often at all. I have a lot of questions. 

Also, is it just me or is it somehow a little worse now that they can call more often and you don't know when you will hear from them. 

Comment by diannep on August 27, 2013 at 11:33pm

I'm leaving the group too....blessings to your sailors in their Navy futures!

Comment by CatMom509 on August 27, 2013 at 2:19pm

Friends, I'm moving on from this group.  Hope to see you on some of the other Navy for Mom groups.  God's blessings to your Sailor and your family~~

Thanks Pamela J~~  :)

All I have to say besides info is right on, is bring a sweater or jacket. It is freezing and you are there way early, sitting and waiting. Most will appreciate the extra layer!

Happy PIR Day!  Hope that most of you are already sitting in the PIR Hall!

Shiela:  Let us know why your daughter wanted you there so early.  Maybe just to get a good seat since if she was an Honor Recruit, you should have received a letter....but you never know! 

Enjoy today everyone!  It is very special!
