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:

Welcome to N4M!!! This is a wonderful site & I don't know what I would've done without it last year when my son PIR'd. 


I noticed that your recruit is leaving on 10/4, my daughter has also enlisted & will be leaving on 10/6.  Where are ya'll from?
