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"

nlover4real, There are several groups, but I can't narrow it down to an A School since you don't know the rating. Here are a couple links for you.

Texas Moms

Thanks so much Rocksmom. I appreciate the information. I didn't go the the cart for food so I didn't know they had them.

Comment by KYNavyMomma on November 9, 2015 at 11:36am

Just got home last night... pulled an all nighter Friday and met my new Sailor at the airport and waited until he flew off to Goose Creek. Was exhausted Saturday, but wouldn't have missed those last few hours with him ! We spent Saturday with my Sailor who is in A school there at Great Lakes. Awesome weekend, but it flew by too quickly...seems like a blur now. Can't wait to hear how everyone's new Sailors are doing. I loved meeting some of you Mommas at the Meet & Greet! That was awesome. I truly feel like I have made some lifelong connections with my fellow Navy Moms :) Happy for all of our new Sailors and very excited- proud beyond words!!

Comment by Shawni's Mom on November 8, 2015 at 9:57pm

Thank you, ladies, for the helpful information.

Navy Lodge was a very nice place to stay.

Everyone was so nice...

PIR was great in spite of the fact that I had to sit near my ex. I'm so proud of my baby girl!

She left for San Antonio for A school Saturday afternoon and I miss her, but at least we can call and text now.

Take care, Ladies. Thanks again!
