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 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).  Still limited to 2 guests maximum.

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 7/16/2021**




**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.

I'm sorry I forgot to mention the M of IBM, aka Mitchel, it was nice meeting such a great young man and remember we are here if he needs help with that Eagle Scout project.
Comment by LMC -mom of 2 Sailors! on August 15, 2010 at 12:02pm
Mitchel and I had fun. He enjoyed meeting everyone and considering he was only really going for the fun of the place he ended up enjoying the company he was in. I thanks him on the way home from Jo-Jo's for going along. I told him it was nice to share my N4M friends with him. He said he had fun and might go next time we are getting together.

Brenda- FYI while we were all on our first round of Putt Putt many of us asked where you were.
MomaBearKK was busy hiding golf balls in the ruff
It was sad to have to have Susan call it an early night, but so glad they joined us. Always good to see them.

My Prayers go out to ALL of you.

I'd say you both convered the event quite well, my body is a little sore today but I was having fun, MamaBear, thanks for organizing this event. It was so nice to see everyone and Tammy Sue aka Bailey's mom, it was nice to meet you and your family. Nurseysis, it was good to meet Eddie, he seems like a keeper, and Mikesproudmom it was nice to meet your other half! Have a great day everyone.

LMC did a terrific job of controlling everyone's balls :)

MamaBear and terbeasch were pretty good at hitting the balls at the batting cages I hear. Unfortuantely, MamaBear thought they were a bit too hard. You said that with a bat in your hands and I saw my husband flinch and take a step away from

There was also Ethan from Fairport Harbor, whose parents were MIA and decided to let us all adopt him for a very brief time at putt putt, but who bailed as soon as we asked him if he would like to join the military!!!

LMC recommended a terrific italian place and we enjoyed cheese balls (see the theme here), pizza, baked mac and cheese, wedding soup and lasagna soup for a late night snack!

The weather did give us a scare - but it cleared for us! It was so nice to see everyone. I needed some laughs.

nurseysis and boyfriend were extremely competitive and entertaining
terbeasch really excelled on the two (2) putt putt courses and also loved to heckle our followers - we will have to do more batting cages!
Susan R and daughters were happy to let dad watch the food - haha The twins were everywhere - I hope they enjoyed the event!
mikesproudmom is dangerous on the go-cart track! You could hear her screams over all of the motors. I noticed hubby waited until she was OFF the track to take his turn!
TammySue and family were all smiles. We were ALL happy to see them. I think they are go-cart fans too!
LMC could not control her own golf balls and took control of others! haha
The sons of TammySue and LMC tolerated our slow golf moves. I think they finally ditched us for faster moving activities. haha

I enjoyed myself but was a bit stiff this morning after all the tension on the go-carts; trying to keep the pedal to the metal! It was great to see all of you again. I hope all enjoyed the evening. : ) ~ kk

Have a great week!

So nice to see everyone. Thanks Mama for arranging it.
Comment by MamaBear kk on August 14, 2010 at 2:10pm
See you all this evening!
mikesproudmom (ATO) Comment by mikesproudmom (ATO) on August 14, 2010 at 10:12am
MamaBear - Hope Norah Jones ate a good breakfast with you! I'm so glad they were flexible. The policy they communicated to me was ridiculous! I was feeling guilty about arriving late and possibly screwing up the group discount - I feel much better about that now. I told my husband he should just sell a couple of cars early on on then he would be able to leave early, so we'll see. Hope the customers cooperate :) See you tonight!!
Comment by MamaBear kk on August 14, 2010 at 9:41am
Another update ~ The manager and owner of the park has remedied our payment situation. If at all possible, please bring cash. If this is not possible, they will accommodate a credit card payment for us. I will be arriving earlier than 6:00 PM to give the Prize Counter a roster of those attending (by first names). If you want my cell number, please send me a private message. I will be online again after noon.

My final ticketing numbers are:
mikesproudmom = 2 (arriving later)
terbeasch = 1
Brenda Kay = 2
TammySue = 3
Susan R = 3 or 4
MamaBear kk = 3

Wear comfy clothes! See you soon : ) ~ kk
