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 6/23/2022 - 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.

Hi Pauls Mom, yes he is beautiful...I never put a sailor suit on Danny...wish I had..I did put one on my older son Eugene for his First birthday party...I am looking for that picture to send to Danny..I posted somewhere else on NavyforMoms that even though there was no mail for 2 days, there was still a chance for a call...No call news is good news though...I didnt read about the candle but I will look into it and put it in my window.  This has been the longest two weeks of my life...and I have had many long weeks...but its all worth it I am so proud of him and I look forward to March 30th with all my heart..These guys are so courageous..just signing their name on the dotted line took courage and faith...They are All in my prayers...and I love them ALL ..GO NAVY!!

Amen to that!  My son is in my prayers many times daily & I also remember to add the same request for strength, protection & success for all the other brave young men & women whom I don't know but who are there at RTC. 

Mail service returned today, but sadly nothing there from my son.  One day soon...  As you said though, no news is good news.

Take care

Hi! Yes he is a handsome sailor. My son Dustin is also on Ship 11 Div 106. My name is Mary. I have received a few letters over the past few weeks, but nothing will take the place of just hearing his voice again.4 and a half days left to graduation. I'm sure he can't wait. I really wish I could attend Graduation. he's my only son and I'm so proud of him. Perhaps his wife and I will find a way to make it happen. It does help a little to read others are in this together with you and to read all the great stories from different families.

This group won trivia tues today,.Go to RTC facebook page and they will be posting a picture of your division sometime next week. Congratulations!!

I haven't done facebook through Navy4Moms, & very little on the outs.  Would you be able to advise the best way I might be able to go there to see the picture?  My son is 11/106.


I'm trying to attach the FB pic for you.  Hopefully it worked.  If not, you can see it on their FB page.
