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."


**UPDATE - 2020**

Due to COVID there is no public PIR. The graduations are on Thursday, and the video of the graduation is posted on RTC's FaceBook on Friday at approx 3pm. Please keep in mind that a division may need to complete additional quarantine during training which will delay their graduation.

Please note! Changes to this guide happened in October 2017. Tickets are now issued for all guests, and all guests must have a ticket to enter base. A separate parking pass is no longer needed to drive on to base for parking.

Please see changes to attending PIR in the PAGES column. The PAGES are located under the member icons on the right side.

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"

Glad to hear you Sailor is doing great to Heidic4.... mine is heading to Japan for 4 years after school is done.  Where is yours heading or has gone too?

Hi LoriM! Glad to hear your sailor is doing well-mine stayed North and loves it as well. Since he is a Florida boy I am waiting to see what the next few months bring:) I have his birthday present ready to go-a nice warm blanket! Continued prayers for all the sailors today and everyday! (The mom's too)

Wow!!  That's awesome!!  And you were so worried about the other Sailor influencing your daughter with her negative situation when God used your daughter to positively give her encouragement and the desire to see her Navy career come true!!!   That is quick action with already hearing back from the Command~~  Such a blessing your Sailor daughter was to the other!!  I want to give the other Sailor a hug and your daughter 2 ((HUGS!!))  God is so GREAT!!!  <></  There's always a reason for everything according to the Lord's plan~~  :D

Comment by LoriM on October 17, 2014 at 12:15am

CatMom509   My daughter changed the Sailors mind,,, she has asked to stay in the military and they have accepted her request!!!!!!  I should know by now not to question what the Lord does ,,, it is for a reason no matter what it is.  This Sailor must have been meant to need my Sailor!!  The Lord does so many wonderful things through us!
