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."

MadreBee - You may also join the Beyond BC - Navy For Moms (ning.com) group as well! Congratulations to your new sailor!!

That is precious!! - FYI, your profile Url is still showing your full name. This has occurred with a couple of recent new members who have also changed their profile name. I have just suggested they go back into the settings on their profile page again and I think they have all managed to get it fixed, despite the fact that I am no help otherwise to explain how to do it exactly. 

You can also check the security of your page by seeing what is visible when you are not logged in. You can just do a search for your name on the N4M site home page. This discussion of mine explains some of this - Private Messages - Creating & Sending + OPSEC

Is the photo of one of your littles missing their older sibling, or of your SR, when they were little?

Welcome!! Please read my blog to give you an idea of what the first few weeks may look like.. Welcome to the Navy... Everything will be ok!  The First part is some things to do before your SR leaves IF you Can, It’s NOT ESSENTIAL! Up and to the Left is a link to all the Navy Lingo! It is titled Navy Speak and you can find it here. We are here to get you through the “Great Silence” of the next 4 weeks (ish) and the 10 weeks of BC (ish). You will come to learn that No News Is GOOD News and everything is Needs of the Navy. You life will be Hurry Up and Wait and it’s ok to make plans but they are subject to change until after they have happened so it’s best to embrace the Motto: Semper Gumby!! (Always Flexible!!)

Bernadette - I wanted to welcome you to the BC Mom group!! We are glad you have found this site and joined the BC Mom group. We are not a private site like some of the FB groups are, so we do not use last name or email addresses on this site. Please see B'sNukeMom's message below my comment here. 

This site was set up by the Navy and is a little old school, so if you are trying to view it using your mobile device, we recommend putting it into desktop mode, but even then, it can sometimes be hard to scroll around. I find it much easier to use and navigate on my computer. 

Once you change your profile name and fix your settings, I will not receive a new notice that you joined, so be sure to come to the group page - scroll down past the information, and then past the discussions and you will come to the Comment Wall on the group page. That is the best place to come say hello!

Welcome to NAVYforMoms.com!   

We ask that our members not use a last name or email address in their Username - even if it differs from their Sailor's - so please head to “Settings” on the main page right away to set your new Username (be creative!) and add a profile image (no last names visible) to complete your Profile. Then - and this is important! - read these Community Guidelines and this Operations Security (OPSEC) Checklist, for the safety and privacy of all our Sailors.

Then jump right in!  Browse around the site and check out the groups and the information in their Discussion Forums.  

Join this group for boot camp moms, where you'll also find a group for your Pass in Review (graduation) date; and this one for PIR Reference Information.  

Get a head start during boot camp by joining groups for, and learning about, your Sailor's occupational specialty and "A" School; and later your Sailor's duty station and/or Navy ship and homeport. You can also join groups for your own state, region or home town and interests from getting ready for deployment to care package ideas.

Please say Hi when you join a group, and feel free to ask any and all questions - everyone was new once, and there is no "dumb" question.  

This site was created by the U.S. Navy just for you.  We look forward to getting to know you and your Sailor.  

Welcome to the NAVY family - we're so glad you're here!!

Your NAVYforMoms Admins

Please note that there are blue hyperlinks up above that will take you directly to the groups - just click on them.
