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:

A little about me:
Proud momma of a United States Navy Corpsman. "Corpsmen UP" Don't Tread on my baby!!!
I am here to support my
Stage of (Sailor’s) Navy career?
When I heard “Navy,” I...
Was proud and encouraged it
The Navy offers opportunities that...
I was a Navy Brat... I enjoyed growing up on military bases. I always felt secure and safe. I was always proud of my dad for protecting our freedom. Navy is our family tradition. My dad, uncles, cousins, nephews, brothers and now my first born son has made the commitment. I'm proud of my family and their service to our Great Nation.
Our Navy experience so far...
It was positive and maturing. Our relationship has grown stronger.

He wanted to be in the military as a little boy and didn't know it...

It's only been a week since I saw my son off to his next duty station. I miss him already. I am so proud of him. But WOW. I am new at this and he is my oldest child. I didn't realize it would be this hard to see them go and grow on their own.

Welcome to N4M. Your key to adjusting is finding a group (or groups) where you can feel comfortable and get answers to your questions – Click on the underlined links:
1. New Moms Stop Here group. You should think of this group as your orientation station.
2. Depper’s… in but not yet . is a group for those just waiting for bootcamp to start (Delayed Entry Program – a depper)
3. Boot Camp Moms group. Just about to go into Bootcamp? or already in?
4. OCS Graduate Moms or the NROTC Moms. For those going to be an officer or going to NROTC?

Check your page (click on MY PAGE) & status box (INBOX, FRIENDS, SETTINGS) often. If you don't you'll never find out what messages your new N4M friends have left

Best of luck, BunkerBee and AbbyblueOK (from the New Moms Stop Here Group)
