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."


**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 have been on N4M since last July but consider myself a lurker.  I love the shares and comments.  I do have a question.  My son will be on the USS Lincoln when the USS Eisenhower returns.  I am looking for an extended stay hotel from the time they return until the end of August.  Can someone offer some suggestions?  Thanks.

Thanks Megan for answering my question. :)

Yes the ship is in drydock, but as a new incoming sailor without any quals, be prepared for him to get sent out to another ship for a deployment to get qualified and whatnot since he has to get that done within a certain amount of time of being on the ship. As far as where they live, they have a few different places that single sailors live, most of them are barracks and they do have some apts, but I would imagine if he is just coming in he will probably get a barracks.

I'm new here. My son was just told he will be assinged to the USS Lincoln soon. If the ship is in dry dock what will the sailors life be like and where do they live?

My daughter adopted a puppy when she came home on leave right after the Lincoln got into port.
