N4M's Community Guidelines

~OPSEC OPerational SECurity, is always of the utmost importance.

~N4M’s also has Community Guidelines just like any other social media.

~Please take the time to read the OPSEC and N4M’s Community Guidelines.

~A quick note here, from the N4M’s CG’s:

• Don’t Jeopardize the Safety of Our Sailors: Remember OPSEC (Operational Security) (Don’t Sink Ships With Loose Lips) This site and all content posted on it are viewable to everyone on the Internet. This doesn’t mean you can’t share things about your Sailor – but too many details can put Sailors in harm’s way. 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.

Some Suggestions:

~If your last name is different from your Recruits it is still not recommended for you to use in your username for your own personal security. This is your option. It is also not a good idea to use an email address as your username for personal security reasons.

~First Names and pictures of your Recruit are allowed but remember, everyone can see it and someone can easily match them up with their "mom". So you might want to consider changing your profile picture to not include your Recruit at least for the duration of BC. Again, your option

~It is also a good idea to make your settings for your Profile Page "viewable only to your friends".

Take a Guess:

The Medal of Honor is the highest medal any military member can earn. It was specifically made for the Navy only. On December 21, 1861 Congress made it an official Navy award. President Lincoln signed the bill and the (Navy) Medal of Honor was born.

Of the 3461 awarded, only two father & son family members got one (at different times).  One of the father/son team was well known General Douglas MacArthur (son) and Arthur MacArthur (dad).

btw: I found Arthur to be a weird name, Arthur MacArthur

Now the question:

The other father & son Medal of Honor winners had one that went on to become President of the United States.

Who was the only president to ever earn a Medal of Honor? 

1. Dwight David Eisenhower

2. John Fitzgerald Kennedy

3. Ulysses Simpson Grant

4. Theodore Roosevelt

Answer is in the Discussion area above....

i ahree too with everybody letting go is really hard, but they wiill soon be done and have a better future ..thank for all yall support..

Comment by mrsb on May 18, 2013 at 8:38pm

I have to agree with mom2cdjk, nothing will be the same when they are done with BC.  They will be different men and women, not the"kids" that we said goodbye too.  In a way that makes me sad but on the other hand, what a great accomplishment for them all!  I'm sure my son will still have his sense of humor but he will be much more grown up.  It will be so good to see him that way, not the boy that went away.  He said that he knows he made the right decision and is so glad of our support and well wishes.  I'm sure they all are!  God Bless them all and us too!!

Thanks to all of you I have been able to read all your posts and keep up with my SR and what they are doing each week, each day.  I feel for all of you who are having a hard time letting go of your SRs and dealing with the separation.  I think it helped me a lot that my SR went to Texas A&M for 1 Semester and that's where I had to deal with separation and no phone calls; not knowing how he was doing.  This time, I am not only used to the no calls or emails, but I am so proud that he decided to join our US Navy! This time, he writes once a week! I look forward to every Thursday for his letters.  I have not heard his voice in three weeks and wonder if he is sick.  He knows I would know immediately if he was ill and prob does not want to worry me.  I am looking forward to my "I'm a Sailor" call and to seeing him at PIR 6/7/13.  "A" school will be out of state so I'm getting myself ready for a short Liberty call Friday only. :(   But I know I am blessed.  I get to hug him soon!! Thank you all for the link! And thank you for the Scripture passages. Yes, we can do all things, through Christ who strengthens us! HOOYAH!!!
