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.

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.

Event Description

This is a chance for everyone to put a face to the name. 
The Ramada does the M&G regardless, they are not connected with the Navy, they do it as a service so date can not be changed. We can request a table or ask to move it to another room...the bar gets dark and loud after a while. Also, some PIR groups go to the Ramada then plan to meet elsewhere for dinner…Anastasias, Flannigans. We may want to bring drinks to save on cost.
There will be many there who have never heard of N4M's. Looking forward to finally meeting parents and friends of PIR 02/18/11. Please rsvp so that we all know who will be coming. Thanks!
