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.

FOLLOW THIS LINK FOR UP TO DATE INFO:

RTC Graduation

**UPDATE 7/16/2021**

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

MASK AND SOCIAL DISTANCING IS REQUIRED. 

NO MASK, NO ENTRY

**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.

Hello ladies. My son is on the Bulkeley. We communicate via Messenger every single day. My husband "needs" to communicate with him every day.  LOL

Comment by Betsy on July 3, 2018 at 5:20pm

Ms Ann, I did have an email response in the wee hours last night in response to some of my comments to him about his phone bill.  I've got to get with AT&T.  So, I know he's alive and kicking!

Comment by Betsy on July 1, 2018 at 5:07pm
I think it’s been 2 weeks for me too. I had a brief FB PM about 10 days ago.
Comment by Ms. Ann on July 1, 2018 at 4:15pm
Betsy my son is on the USS Faragut too. It's been 2 weeks since he's called .
Comment by Betsy on July 1, 2018 at 1:32pm

My son is on deployment on the USS Farragut

Comment by 1underGod on June 30, 2018 at 6:27pm

My son is on deployment too. I sent a care package a few weeks into his deployment and it took about 3 weeks to arrive. Hopefully we get a call within the next two weeks.  God bless you all.

Comment by Ms. Ann on June 30, 2018 at 5:56pm

It's good to know I'm not by myself. I'm hoping for a call soon. Has anyone sent care packages? I sent my son one May 29th and it hasn't made it yet.

Comment by willsmom93 on June 30, 2018 at 10:36am

My son is on deployment too.

Comment by NavyMom2014 on June 30, 2018 at 10:15am

Yes, my son is on deployment.  They are on the tail end of his 4th patrol.  

Comment by KiddGreen1978 on June 30, 2018 at 9:44am
Hi Ann, yes, my son is currently on deployment.
