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."

Events

**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.

**UPDATE 7/16/2021**

RESUMING LIVE PIR - 8/13/2021 - ONLY 2 GUESTS ALLOWED

MASK AND SOCIAL DISTANCING IS REQUIRED. 

NO MASK, NO ENTRY

**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.

Hello all! I was just given some phone numbers that I thought someone else may be able to use at some point:

Public Affairs Office (PAO): They can tell you where your child is being housed and give you an address to write to them: 847-688-2405

Medical Liason: I used this one for my son who was recovering from an injury. They will arrange for your child to call home so that you can get some information about what's going on! I think you can probably do this once, when they first get there: 847-561-6521

Frankly I think it depends on who answers the phone how helpful they are, Stacy. They do have privacy concerns too when people call requesting addresses. I waited for my first letter, 2 weeks into boot camp. Write your letters, and when your recruit calls, get the address and mail them all then. The first 2 weeks they are basically out of reach.
You are not alone she told me the same thing. I have called this number twice on two different days and times.
Ok, I will wait, I need to work on my patience anyway. :)
Take care,
Go here for addresses for all the Ships, if you have that info: http://www1.netc.navy.mil/nstc/rtcgl/family/contact.html
Add the Division and voila! I didn't have any trouble tracking down my son, even when he was going from ship to ship with his shoulder injury. PAO gave me the info without as much as a "who are YOU?". I'm sure it just depends on who answers the phone. Kill them with kindness. I've read somewhere in here that if you tell them that you have bank information that you need to get to them, they'll cough up info on where they are! LOL...not sure if that works cuz I've never had to use it!
