Guidelines for Posting to SWONEC

Great advice from the "Navy SEAL Families" Group


Because SWONEC is designed for SEAL and EOD Candidates

Guidelines for Posting to SWONEC


1. Remove the name of your Sailor from this site and any other internet locations where you may have already posted. Also, remove your Last Name (use your initial if you want) these two items will publicly identify your Sailor and that is not allowed by NSW. You may want to read about PERSEC and ask your Sailor about the subject.

2. Send or accept a Friends request to/from those for private questions.
There are things that should not be discussed in a public forum. Use the Friends Request (Message Section on the site), Instant Messenger or emails for the security of your Sailor. Also read about OPSEC. As time passes more and more people may read your postings (including Instructors) and your Sailor may hear about it but not in a fun way. It is best to post your private email in a PM so everyone in the world does not get your private info. Unless you want some extra junk mail in your inbox.

3. SEAL is an acronym. It stands for Sea, Air, and Land. A Seal is a mammal and some will take offense to the lower case letters.



It should go without saying that EVERYONE should observe Operational Security (OPSEC) and Personal Security (PERSEC) at all times.

To make it clear, we recommend that you not mention current deployments, operational information, techniques, tactics or procedures that are not public knowledge on these Forums. You should also refrain from stating the locations and names of any Navy SEAL or other Special Operations Forces personnel, within these Forums.

DO NOT discuss Tier 1 Special Operations Forces units.

If you read a post that you believe violates this rule, please send a Private Message to an Administrator immediately. They will then investigate the matter further and determine a course of action.

In addition, if you wish to exchange any personal information (e.g., your full name) to another member, you should use the Private Message feature or Personal Email to exchange such information.


NavyDads mission is to Provide Support, Encouragement, and Knowledge to Sailors and their Families throughout their Journey together in the United States Navy.
