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."


**UPDATE - 2020**

Due to COVID there is no public PIR. The graduations are on Thursday, and the video of the graduation is posted on RTC's FaceBook on Friday at approx 3pm. Please keep in mind that a division may need to complete additional quarantine during training which will delay their graduation.

Please note! Changes to this guide happened in October 2017. Tickets are now issued for all guests, and all guests must have a ticket to enter base. A separate parking pass is no longer needed to drive on to base for parking.

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

Event Description

I have been in contact with the Chaplain on the USS Abraham Lincoln and have been made aware there are many sailors who dont have mailing and or care packages being sent. I would love to try and bridge that gap, I live in the Central Florida area, in Lakeland, Florida.

Anyone interested in helping we will begin packing boxes and sending them to the Chaplain to distribute as he sees fit.

I would also like to look into starting a chapter of Navy Moms of Polk County, Florida if anyone is interested.

That way we could have a local group and help meet the needs of local Sailors and thier families also.
