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".

Comment by Emy⚓ on September 19, 2013 at 12:57pm

Any members that have a sailor in class 1351 or 1352 in A school (Goose Creek, SC)? (:

Comment by CatMom509 on September 18, 2013 at 1:11am

landlockedmom (Jo),

Your Sailor has a "can do" attitude and that's the way to look at the situation!!  The Navy is probably trying to get the place back in operation and is working on it, just have alot of Sailors to work with~~

Comment by PrdNavyMom2Sailors on September 15, 2013 at 3:24pm

The group is BM's and CS's.

Comment by SouthernCalimom Ship 13 Div 333 on September 14, 2013 at 11:19pm
Where is this school?
Comment by CatMom509 on September 14, 2013 at 10:25pm

Oh my, which A school is this?  Is it supposed to be temporary?  Does the administrator of the A school group know about this?  That just boggles my mind!
