OPSEC, PERSEC, Respect, & Privacy

📌 Please watch the following videos brought to you by https://www.navy.mil/ah_online/OPSEC/.

Posts and comments violating OPSEC or PERSEC are not permitted. Being part of this group requires mutual trust; what is said in the group stays in the group.

 Examples: OPSEC

  1. Discussions of school and training (not mission-specific) while a recruit/military member is attending recruit or follow-on schools, i.e., A-Schools, are permitted.
  2. All content must conform to military and troop Operational Security. Troop is defined as a group of military personnel. Do not discuss troop operations including movement, missions, logistics, numbers, locations, dates, and/or morale.
  3. Missions include but are not limited to engagement, training exercises, patrols, delivery of supplies, delivery of mail, meeting with locals. If your Sailor is sharing his/her troop activities with you, don’t share it in the community.
  4. Posts identifying your Sailor’s specific billet in conjunction with a mission whether past, present or future, will not be allowed.
  5. Identification of a Sailor in a high-security billet or MOS is not allowed.

Examples: Respect & Privacy

  1. Please respect your own privacy, and the privacy of your family, your military member or recruit, and other members of the group. We reserve the right to delete posts of a private nature without notice.
  2. Please respect the privacy of your military member or recruit and remember that letters written to you were not likely intended for you to publish in a social media group.
  3. Do not share information, names, phone numbers, addresses or emails about another person’s military member or recruit.

Examples: PERSEC (personal security)

  1. While Facebook requires you to use your last name in your profile, we discourage you from sharing your recruit or military member last name in any social media environment.
  2. Sharing your recruit or military member last name in our groups is not permitted. We will remove posts from our groups which include last names of recruits or military members. We advise against tagging your military member or recruit in a photo or allowing photos that include his/her user name.
  3. Personal information about yourself, your military member or recruit, or other members is not permitted, including but not limited to identifying information such as email addresses, phone numbers, addresses or user names from social media.
  4. If ANY social media group asks for personally identifying information about you or your recruit or military member as a condition of joining or during membership, we discourage you from joining or participating in those groups.
  5. No one can prove who a person is from viewing a Facebook profile or asking a few questions. Facebook groups are not secure regardless of who the Admins and Moderators are—even those who claim military-only memberships.
