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 as of 11/10/2022 PIR vaccination is no longer required.

**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).  


RTC Graduation

Brand new mom out of Tracy saying Hello! My son ships out to Great Lakes in March '13. Just enjoying these next few months the best we can and reading all the stuff on here regarding PIR to get prepared. Was lucky enough to witness my nephew's Army graduation at Fort Benning, GA back in '09, so it will be an honor to see another branch's ceremony. Happy Thanksgiving to all, many blessings to you and your loved ones. :)

We just went to our son's PIR on 2-4-2011. We are so proud!!! He will be in Great Lakes for EN A school for 12 more weeks. He asked us to go back for A school graduation soooooo it looks like there is another trip to GL in our future.
