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."

Follow this link for OPSEC Guidelines:



**UPDATE 4/26/2022** Effective with the May 6, 2022 PIR 4 guests will be allowed.  Still must be fully vaccinated to attend.

**UPDATE 7/29/2021** You now must be fully vaccinated in order to attend PIR:

In light of observed changes and impact of the Coronavirus Delta Variant and out of an abundance of caution for our recruits, Sailors, staff, and guests, Recruit Training Command is restricting Pass-in-Review (recruit graduation) to ONLY fully immunized guests (14-days post final COVID vaccination dose).  

Specific information on this policy change will be provided in the coming days and weeks.

We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience and appreciate your support.


RTC Graduation

**UPDATE 8/25/2022 - MASK MANDATE IS LIFTED.  Vaccinations still required.


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.

My husband and I are looking forward to meeting everyone.
Comment by MamaBear kk on November 12, 2009 at 10:35pm
kimbokatbo ~ Thank you for making them! What I know so far: Arlietx = 2, MamaBear kk = 3, DAVIDSmom = 6, and JulieR = 2 or 3 (I think). I have not heard from Ms. Wendy, but i would count on at least 4. DonnaM will not be at the 901 dinner, as she is arriving to GL later. More were invited, but I have included only those with a response. I would count on at least 21 name tags.

MamaBear, if you can give me a headcount I will work on name tags this weekend. Also, if anyone wants to private message me actual names I can print these on the name tags or we can fill them out when we get there.

If you open this event and you are not able to RSVP, please let me know. There were 3 other moms invited and the event is not showing them. It is possible they have a privacy setting. Not sure???? ~ kk

It appears our event has a glitche. It does not show that DAVIDSmom is invited. She will be attending and I am in the process of working out this invite issue : ) ~ kk
kimbokatbo Comment by kimbokatbo on November 9, 2009 at 12:21am
MamaBear, thanks for doing this. There will be 4 in our group.
