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.

Oh just one other thing. Not sure if your screen name has anything to do with your son's name but if it does you should change it. :-)

Welcome! Navy for Moms is going to be invaluable to you in the coming months. My son had his PIR (graduation) from bootcamp on 2-18-11. He's now in Pensacola for school. His rate is CTN. I learned so much with N4M, especially once he left for bootcamp and we had a group for our PIR date. Those 8 weeks of very little contact were tough but having my N4M friends helped me to know what my son might be going through.

Hello all, my son just enlisted and will go to boot camp in Oct. From there he goes on to Pensacola for CTT training.

Hi, ladies. Just joined the group this morning. My husband arrived to Pcola on Saturday. He's in INDOC and will probably be on hold while he waits for his security clearance to go through.

my daughter just moved over to Corry yesterday to start CTT A and C school, onwards and upwards!

@ Toni My daughter is going to CTN school. We were told its a 11 weeks. I do not timeframe for CTR but that might give you a ballpark figure or might not :) You could call Recurit office and ask. Good luck

Hey everyone, I'm not a mom, but I was told to try this group! My boyfriend went to Pensacola yesterday to be a CTR. Anyone else?
Comment by sweet_steph on November 2, 2010 at 3:24pm
he may have been. but the good news is that he started school last week and we found a cute little house to rent so ill be moving down there. so if anyone has any info on c school that would be a great help. i found out that we get our orders 9 or 10 weeks in to a school so we are counting down!!!!
Comment by sweet_steph on October 6, 2010 at 3:08pm
so after a whole 30 mins of hubbys first day of school he was taken out and replaced with someone else. Maybe next class up he'll start for real. But this is getting old real fast.
Comment by PeggyM on September 30, 2010 at 4:33pm
