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).  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.

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

**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.

Hi Mary- I sent you a friend request :)

Thanks so much - I just accepted it! As of now we have sons graduating on the same day!!

Hi mwsrn -- Yes however your PIR group will not be formed yet ( I'm guessing you have a Nov. PIR group)  We post all that information in the Main BC Moms page.  You can find that by going to the top of this post and selecting "<-- Back to Boot Camp Moms (and loved ones) Discussions" then scroll down to the bottom. There you will find the Main chat area.  This is where we post group information and general discussions.  You will find tons of support and answers there. 
Also, Congratulations.  You got your letter Super Fast!! It is not out of the Norm for it to take 3-4+ weeks.

I know - we were so excited that our letter came so fast! He listed his PIR date as 10/22!

Ahhh. I still encourage you to come and post on the Main BC page but here is the link to the October Group.
October 2021 PIR (https://navyformoms.ning.com/group/piroctober2021)

Thanks so much - I will most definitely visit the BC group as well!! Thanks for all the info! It is so helpful!! :)

I also left some information for you on your page.  This will give you an idea of the timeline as well.
