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:

Sorry, that was a typo, is the URL for this page.

At 11:30pm on May 7, 2015, lemonelephant said…

Every time you have posted on N4M since 6 November 2008 when you joined you have posted your full name, TinaC...... (I only posted the first letter of your last name although the whole last name is visible above to help with PERSEC), since it is visible in the URL above and any time ANYONE (not just members of N4M, but ANYONE with access to the web) who happens upon one of your posts anywhere in the site. Yes, you probably made the change in your Username soon after joining the site, but this is the first time that one of your posts came to my attention. It really is not a good idea to have your full name up there nor is it a good idea to have your Sailor's pic up there. Please do consider the changes below to increase PERSEC.

At 6:35pm on May 7, 2015, lemonelephant said…

I see you have changed your Username so that it no longer contains your last name; you also need to change the URL to this page. Make change 2 at the bottom of OPSEC and PERSEC (Making Changes to Your Profile) (clickable link) to take care of that. (If you are using a Smart phone, you will need to switch to Desktop View to make this change.) Also make change 3 while you are there so that this page is no longer open to EVERYONE (Anyone) with access to the web.

It's not a good idea to post a pic of your Sailor every time you post, so also make change 4.

There may be other changes you need to make as well, so read and consider each of the changes.

Another change that I recommend that is mentioned in change 1 is to change the ZIP code to one that is not easily associated with your Sailor.

Typo...Eric is an officer. He is a commander. Eric tried to explain what "on Staff" meant, but didn't follow it too well. What I could figure out way, that Eric is in charge of an unit that has to do with the communications part of the ship. Eric has been in the navy for nearly 17 years (yup, you read that right). He was just on board yesterday to make sure everything was going in the right direction. She has been in and out of port several times in the last week or so, doing some sort of manuvers and running her through her paces. They have to make sure that she is up to full time duty when they head out to the Persian Gulf. Are you coming Saturday? We can talk then.

Eric is an office. He is on staff on the Enterprise. Hope to see you at the Buffulo Wild Wings place at 1:00 Saturday.

Oops, I answered you on my page instead of yours. I'm sorry, it's been a strange week. One of my other sons' car was stolen Sunday night, I lost a dear friend Friday night, and my washer has gremlins. It somehow flooded my backyard :(
