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."

Follow this link for OPSEC Guidelines:

There are a couple ways you can get an email notification from this website.  And it depends on if you click "follow" on these different scenarios.  First, since you are a member of the MOD2 group you might be getting email whenever someone posts on that group.  Go to the group and scroll down past the pictures and discussions to the Comment Wall.  You will see an empty box with your profile picture in the upper left corner.  Scroll down and you will see the latest comment posted to the group page.  You can scroll down and read all the comments you want.  It goes backward in time so the newest are always first, and page 1 is always the newest stuff.  You can go back as many pages as you want.  If you want to respond go back to page one to that empty box with your picture and type your comment in there.

Second, if someone commented on your profile page, you will get an email that someone added a comment to your profile.  Go to your page to read it and to comment back  click on the "comment back" link at the bottom of their comment, or just click on their picture or name and that will take you to their page and leave a comment on the comment wall.  You will always see an empty box with your profile picture in the upper corner and that's where you type.

If you comment on a discussion you will get an email from this site that someone else responded.  Go back to the discussion and go to the "last reply by xxx" .  Discussions work a little different in that you can comment in the box and it will go to the END of the discussion. Or you can click on the "Reply" to someone's comment and yours will post directly under theirs.  Confusing isn't it?????

And I think the last way you will get an email is if someone goes to the group page and clicks on the "send message to the group".  Those messages you won't see on the group page but each and every member who has ever joined this group will get that message by email.  The only way to respond would be to find their profile and leave a comment on their page, or leave a comment on the group page and hope they read it.  

If this doesn't seem to answer your question, send me more info on what kind of email you're getting and I can address that directly.  Just for your info, I don't read the actual emails I receive.  I see that someone commented on a page, discussion, or my profile and I just go there to read it.  The links in the emails don't always work I found!!!  Hope this helps!!!  Let me know . . . .
