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."

Follow this link for OPSEC Guidelines:



**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.


RTC Graduation

**UPDATE 7/16/2021**




**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.

Hi everyone!  My son is in Guam with the Oklahoma City.  I can't believe it will be two years in May.  He likes it as well for the most part although they have been in for a while and he said he almost misses being underway. Tough having him so far but I'm glad for his adventures. He's made some great friends and they keep busy!

Comment by Havasu on February 15, 2020 at 2:12pm

Thank you so much, Regina! That's great to know he loves the area. I do hope a visit will work out for us there some time in the future! 

Comment by Regina on February 14, 2020 at 6:02pm

Havasu, welcome to Guam, my son has been in Guam for 7 years and he loves it. However he will be leaving in April for his next duty station but is hoping he will make it back to Guam in the future. If you get the chance to go for a visit you should it’s absolutely beautiful.

Comment by Havasu on February 14, 2020 at 3:33pm

Hello, everyone! Just wanted to do a quick intro and say Hi! My son graduated Prototype school on January 31st and just received orders for Guam and is assigned to the USS Key West. He is to report there sometime in the last part of March.

Hello,  just talked to my sailor tonight.  He will be going to Guam fairly soon, so looks like we may need to be planning some visits in the next few years!!!

I don't use this site much, although the files about OPSEC and the Red Cross are useful. I am a member of the Heart of the Ocean -- Submarine Moms face book group. There are several Topeka moms there. Mine is in the same squadron, different boat, although he did a ride along on Topeka last year and earned his Dolphins aboard, so knows many in the crew.

Comment by Mommabearsublife on October 28, 2019 at 11:48pm

Is this still a valid group? If so, anyone have submariner on Topeka?

Comment by ArchyMom on February 27, 2019 at 1:26pm

That comment was for Rime.

Comment by ArchyMom on February 27, 2019 at 1:25pm

Yeah, long silences. Do you have your Sailor's boat email? You can send short emails, but may or may not get any response, depending on how busy things are on the boat or the availability of a computer for an email. Are you on Facebook? There are a couple of submarine mom groups on there where you might hook up with moms from the same boat. Also, you can get general news of the fleet from the Squadron 15 Facebook page. Anyway, be patient, your son will contact you when he gets into port -- if he gets off the boat. Sometimes they go into port for stores, but your sailor may not get up topside for whatever reason, so he may not call. That's just life. Keep your chin up, Mama!

Glad to find an active site where son's stationed! Looked earlier for subs, but last activity was 4 years ago. Haven't heard anything from him now for many weeks, though it was noted he saw a post several weeks ago. I've heard others talk about the long silences... Now I know more what they meant! Ugh! I know he's in the Lord's hands, so that at least is a comfort.
