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."

Please note! Changes to this guide happened in October 2017. There are now tickets issued, and there are no longer parking passes for PIR.

Please see changes to attending PIR in the PAGES column. The PAGES are located under the member icons on the right side.

Myjazzy

i just went to PIR last week. I flew in early Thursday and my sailor is attending A school in GL. Because of that we scheduled our flight for Monday. We rented a car through Costaco because we wanted the liberty to go as we pleased. I’m sure others will also pipe in with their experience so you will have more to draw on. You can also ask in the boot camp for moms group. Good luck❤️

Myjazzy I would rent a Car, you have more of the freedom to go where you want. its really not that bad driving, and many ways to bypass the tolls.

Comment by Myjazzy on October 25, 2018 at 1:49pm

One more question sounds like using Sarge versus a rental car is the way to go?

Comment by Myjazzy on October 25, 2018 at 1:47pm
Just found this site and all the wonderful information. My son is set for PIR on November 9. I had originally scheduled to fly to Chicago on Thursday, but after reading so much information is it better to come a day earlier. Also just realized since he is staying GL for A school he may have Monday the 12th off? Should I change my airline tickets to stay through Monday. Was leaving Sunday? Thanks.

Here is info on Hotels.

The brochure that is included with The Form Letter from MWRGL about hotels and other things is at RTC Friends and Family Brochure July 2017 rev.pdf. It should have some suggestions with contact information. 

The Page, Saving Money PIR Weekend, has information on hotels, transportation to GL, and more. 

The Navy Gateway Inns & Suites is located on the main base, about 1.5 miles from RTC. Only those with military IDs can access the base to stay there.  http://dodlodging.net or 1-877-NavyBed (1-877-628-9233). 

The Navy Lodge is located 1.9 miles off base from RTC and guests of graduation are allowed to stay there.  https://reservations.staydod.com/hotelSearch.do?action=View&pro... or 847-689-1485. 

There are also hotels in Vernon Hills, Gurnee, and Waukegan.   Hotel Indigo-Vernon Hills .  Here are other places that people have mentioned I do not recommend or endorse any particular one): Ramada Inn Waukegan (some like the place and others do NOT), Hampton Inn in LibertyvilleResidence Inn WaukeganRed Carpet Inn in North ChicagoHawthorn Suites by Wyndham at Wadsworth Waukegan,  La Quinta Inn & Suites in Gurnee... That should give you some places to try. 

The discussion, Recommended Places to Stay, within PIR Reference Information may give you some ideas. Check http://www.tripadvisor.com/ to see what others have said about any hotel you are considering.
