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."

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.

for

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"

Beachmomblue, mine was just home for 5 days. Doing great another 6 months of schooling and then off to the fleet for adventures unknown! Hope everyone is doing well in their Navy Mom rolls!

Beachmomblue, it's almost been a year since our PIR. My son is almost done with his first deployment. He is doing great and is happy. Deployments are almost as tough as RTC. Sporadic communication and never knowing where they are until a port call. It is exciting though. Good luck with your son when he is done with school.

How is everyone doing?  How are your children doing since graducation.  My son is doing great.  Two more months of schooling left.  As for me still having a hard time not seeing him but very proud of him.

Hi everyone! My brother was in the division 50. Some graduation photos were sent to our home by mistake. Anyone here from the same division with initials J. H. Please contact me. I would be happy to forward these photos to you.

My son just arrived in Pensacola. He was in the last group to depart from 049/050. Thank you all for your insight and the information you provided. It was helpful to have others who understood what it's like to have a child in bootcamp. Good luck to all in this next phase of an awesome career. Thank you for your service :)
