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:

It's not a good idea to post a pic of your Sailor every time you post (not even a blurry one). See change 4 in OPSEC and PERSEC (Making Changes to Your Profile) (clickable link). To increase PERSEC, don't include ANYONE in your profile pic.

Also make change 3 (see the words in bold) so that this page is no longer visible to EVERYONE (Anyone) with access to the web.

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 you or your Sailor.

Where is your Sailor stationed (what vessel, if one)? There may be groups I can direct you to.

One of the other N4Moms veterans had let me know it was her.  She is only 18.  Her fiance just turned 19 in December and asked her to marry him in Dec--wedding was planned for July.  He also apparently was an only child.  Very very sad.  Another mom from last week's PIR group messaged me that her son's division was running or preparing to run at the same time this happened.  I was surprised at that since I didn't think they mixed PIR groups in training, but maybe some are coming in as others are finishing.  He said that when the SR passed out, and they realized how serious it was, they immediately evacuated the hall they were in. 

As far as flowers, I would just keep watching the site to see if anyone continues to post about that.  So far, I don't believe there has been a date set for the funeral.  Last we heard, he was still at the ME's office where they are trying to determine what happened (one news article said they suspected undiagnosed diabetes, but you never know).  So, I think once there is a date set, there will be more info on the main board or by Message to Group.  In the meantime, lots of prayers for his family/fiance/friends/shipmates. 

Have a good day!

You are "Friends" with the fiance whose sailor died, I see.  "Almyraia"  Didn't know if you knew that.

I meant to say...the Fall of 2009!

You are welcome.  I'm sure your son will tell you about it.  I have been on this site since the Fall of 2010 and have never heard of a SR dying before there.  Prayers for strength and comfort for that whole group, including your son!  Hope to see you on the 1/20 group!

Hey.  Not real fond of chat, so thought I would answer your question here.  There was an SR who died while doing his final PFA on Wed morning.  Very sad.  He was in Div 45.  If you google Navy Recruit dies at GL,  you will see many articles about it.  I pray hard for his family/fiance (on the N4Moms site)/friends....but also for his shipmates, like your SR.  I know their hearts are so wounded by this...and lift them in prayer each day.
