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 - 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.

Very Legal Lemon Poppy Seed Bread

INGREDIENTS:

1 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup yellow cornmeal
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
12 tablespoons unsalted butter, at room temperature
1 1/4 cup granulated sugar
2 large eggs
1 cup sour cream
1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1 tablespoon grated lemon zest
1 teaspoon poppy seeds
parchment paper
non-stick cooking spray
***Topping***
3 tablespoons lemon juice
6 tablespoons granulated sugar
1 tablespoon confectioners' sugar
whipped cream

DIRECTIONS:

Combine the flour, cornmeal, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in a bowl. 

Beat butter and granulated sugar with mixer on medium-high until smooth. Add the eggs and beat until fluffy. Add the sour cream, vanilla, lemon zest, and poppy seeds and beat to combine. Reduce speed to low and slowly add the flour mixture. 

Place 15-inch piece of parchment paper in the bowl of the crock pot, letting the excess come up the sides. Spray the parchment paper with cooking spray. Pour the batter into the crock pot. Set the cooker to high and cook, covered, until set and a skewer inserted in the center comes out clean, about 2 1/2 hours. 

For Topping: Combine the lemon juice and the remaining granulated sugar in a bowl and drizzle evenly over the top of the cake. Transfer the cake to a rack. 

Let cool for at least 15 minutes. Dust with the confectioners' sugar and serve with the whipped cream.

I'm so glad to see this recipe.  My mom used to make banana nut bread in a crockpot/coffee can.  It was the best banana bread, ever.  Are there still coffee brands that use cans?  I've never noticed.  (The brand I buy comes in plastic now.)
