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 4/26/2022** Effective with the May 6, 2022 PIR 4 guests will be allowed.  Still must be fully vaccinated to attend.

**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).  

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 6/23/2022 - MASK MANDATE IS LIFTED -  Vaccinations still required



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.

Hello to all of the people who support our Navy Men & Women from Kentucky. I hope all is well with your Sailors. Tell N4M to change it's format back! I hate this. I don't post often but I do read comments. This format makes that harder to read the comments.

Yes, I will be there for Glendale's Festival this Sat, Oct. 19th!  I can't wait.  It is the best craft fair that I have ever been to and I always find lots of great Christmas gifts.  Anyone else want to join me and Shelia on Saturday?

Our son got orders to Whidbey Island today.  We all hoped for JAX so he would stay on our side of the country but we'll adjust; knew the day would come sometime.

Comment by ibmom on September 10, 2013 at 8:50pm

Shelia, congratulations on your son's assignment; even better he gets the P8 later.   I hope my son gets JAX but he thinks he probably will not.

i was lucky enough to be with a P3 squadron...  best time EVER!!!! Was stationed up in Maine and went to school in Jax.... Miss it soooo son and I argue which side is better.... the black shoe side or the airdale side.... HAHAHH AIRDALE PREVAIL!!

Comment by ibmom on August 20, 2013 at 7:31pm

@Shelia: my son is an AWO-acoustic.  He graduates in Jacksonville from his fleet replacement squadron in September.  He will be an enlisted  crew member on the P3 so I suppose his duty station options are the same as your son's.  He doesn't know  where he will be yet either.

The parade is a go. It is Saturday sept 14. Parade begins at 10. We will meet at 9. Place in mason to be given later. Try to dress in colors representing military or patriotic or navy. Bring a photo of your son or daughter serving. Make it large enough parade watchers can see it. Write in large letter name where his hometown is and where stationed or deployed. We will also be passing out candy to kids on side and brochures to other moms. So if you want to bring a bag if candy please do. More info coming. Message me if you are coming. Our application has been accepted. This will be our opportunity to help other moms who didn't know about us. And represent our navy family members

Hi, I'm from the Ohio Moms and I'm trying to see if there are any moms in Kentucky that would be interested in walking in a parade in Mason, Ohio Saturday Sept 14 at 10am with the Navyformoms.  I am trying to organize this so we can carry photo of our son or daughter and put their name, rank and where they are from and where they are stationed, hoping to get a color guard and also have navyformom packets to pass out for moms that are not familiar with our groups so they can be supported too.  Anyone interested.  Let me know and I will message you with details as we near.

Shelia, that is great to hear.  Will you get to make the trip to JAX to attend his winging?  He may soon be flying with my son.
