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 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.

Hello Shacha!

Welcome to this group. :) I'd like to introduce myself and my husband to you. We are John and Yvonne and for the last 18 years we have  opened our home on the weekends and holidays and invited sailors to come over. We get together on Saturday eves and we feed them and play board games, watch movies, do outdoor activities(weather permitting). On Sundays we sit down to a family meal with homemade bread and dessert. 

You can check our page on this site to find out more about us.

We have a couple of sailors who come over who will  also be deploying on the Lincoln. We would love to invite you so over when he gets here.  I can pm you our cell number so he can contact us .

Yvonne and John

I hope this group is still active!  My AO son will detach soon on the Lincoln then deploy a while after that for many months on his first tour with his squadron.  Hoping this group will keep me informed.  Hello to you all!

@Jayne - I sent you a PM to be a friend. I have information regarding the family day on the Lincoln. -

Comment by jayne on June 24, 2018 at 8:44pm

We are trying to attend the family day on Lincoln and we don't have much information.  Can someone that is going private message me for questions or knows were to find information.  My son has not been able to get logistic information but we do have tickets.

My son is just finishing up Nuke school and will report to Lincoln early June after some much deserved time off. Question since Lincoln is in for overhaul until late 2016, what do our sailors do? and where do they live? Plus my son says after 2 years Lincoln will be headed to San Diego? Anyone else hearing this also? Thanks in advance, so excited to be part of this group.

Hello ladies!  I am traveling for work and I had someone try to mail a package to my daughter.  Problem is that I put the incorrect zip code on the package.  Could someone please provide me with the zip for the ship?  Thank you all.

Theresa you are right about the cover! CVN-74 oops! have a blessed weekend all...

Comment by Kim (Ethan's Mom) on July 23, 2013 at 8:00am
I think my son is wishing he hadn't gotten out. He's been home since the end of June and still doesn't have a job, has decided to wait on school and is hating the heat and bugs in Oklahoma! If it wasn't for his daughter, I think he would have already left!
I'm still staying active with Molly's Adopt a Sailor and We Stitch Love (pillowcases for the adoptions). There are kids who have little to no support from home and I know what a difference the pillowcases and care packages make to them. Sending a little 'home' to them helps their morale and that's what MAS is all about!

Happy 4th of July! I called about the Publishing Co. about the USS Abraham Lincoln world tour book and they told me it should be out in 3 weeks so we are crossing our fingers:-) Our Sailor came home and surprised us the day before Fathers day it was a pleasant surprise to say the least. 3 EMFR i know nothing about a extended stay at any hotel.Maybe call the tourist Bureau and they can hook you up must be a few options i would think. good luck
