With all the recent ship movement and since we have quite a few new members I thought it would be a good idea to remind everyone of the Community Guidelines & OPSEC rules from Navy for Moms Admin:

As a reminder to all members, please review our Community Guidelines regarding OPSEC.

The following are examples of red flags and should not be shared within this community either by posting or sending via a Group message:
• Sailors’ last names. This includes your username if you share the same last name as your son or daughter. If you scan in a picture of an article that contains your Sailor’s last name, make sure to black it out first. If it is an online Navy article or news article that you are reposting, do not publicly identify the mentioned Sailor as your son or daughter.
• No Sailor addresses, emails, or other contact information. The exception to this rule is FPO addresses.
• Specific dates, times, and locations regarding current or future deployments and ship movements. Do not post dates more specific than by month. Do not post specific ports of call, deployment bases, or future destinations.
• Details regarding training, equipment, and current or future operations or missions. (But Boot Camp is okay.)
• Names or numbers of the Recruit Training Command staff.
• Ways to cheat the system. Navy will see it as a breach of security when you share things like how to bend the rules. We don’t want to jeopardize the safety of our Sailors.

INCORRECT:
My Sailor is in XYZ unit and is stationed at ABC camp in XXX city in Iraq.
My daughter is aboard the XYZ ship heading to ABC city/country in X days.
They will be coming back on X date from XXX city.

CORRECT:
My Sailor is deployed in Iraq.
My son is aboard the Stennis.
They will be coming back sometime in May.

When in doubt, less is better.

Hi all - Happy Friday!  It's close enough to the weekend ;-)

Yikes Dittersmom - that is a lot of catching up to do!

Trying to keep cool here - the temps they are a risin'!

Comment by NancyJo (CVN70) on August 14, 2015 at 10:04am

Dittersmom, I have had my "Following" stopped several times, this group and others here at N4M. Don't know why. Hasn't happened in a while. I just think, "Boy, sure is quiet out there" when I finally get suspicious and go in and fix it. Hopefully it won't happen again. Hasn't hit my spam folder yet though.

Comment by PattiP on August 14, 2015 at 6:13am
Dittersmom, Try putting navyformoms.ning.com on your contact list. That's how email knows its from someone you want mail from. 800 posts - that's a lot of reading!
Comment by Dittersmom on August 14, 2015 at 2:19am

Hi Jen.   Nice to have you.  I love the support these ladies provide.  

It took me awhile to figure out the dil and sil.  Daughter-in-law and son-in-law.  Lol.

Does anyone know how to keep the N4M posts from going into the spam folder?  Something has changed and that is why I am not on as often.  I used to be able to keep up and post from my phone.  I would read posts as I saw them.  I was more then 800 posts behind.  

Comment by janice on August 13, 2015 at 8:34pm
Thank you all for sharing your experience, I have sent a text to my son... But he doesn't always respond right away , so if youhavechildren who are in regular communication with you consider yourself blessed. If anyone knows another route to accessing clearance for a late guest please let me know.
Comment by Cerise on August 13, 2015 at 8:14pm

Sounds like things have changed.  When we went for our son's PS graduation a year ago, there were five of us in the car (four adults, one teenager), only my husband (the driver) had to show his id.  No checking bags any place. 

Comment by J's/S'smom on August 13, 2015 at 6:16pm
Janice, they only checked the bags that we carried with us(purses, backpacks, etc.) They did not require IDs for children, which was good because I had accidentally left their IDs at home, and the only thing I had with me was the kids' membership IDs from our local zoo!:-) The adults in the van had to show an ID, but not the kids.
Comment by janice on August 13, 2015 at 5:40pm
J's/S'sMom
I will pass the info along to my son , with restrained optimism... He has communicated that he cannot add anyone else, maybe another recent change,
I am slightly panicked at the idea of checking bags... Is that only for walking into the actual facility? Or your vehicle? I will be in a 12 passenger van with all my children and our suitcases for a vacation weekend... Lots of bags to check!

J's/S's mom - thanks for your input.  Good to know that it's a little more secure these days.
