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.

Thank you.

My son left from PA. The call came just before midnight. Now we wait to hear from them. I guess that's the tough part. At least I know it'll be a couple of weeks. 

Cindi, I left info on your My Page in July to get you started.

All I keep saying is no news is good news!

Wow he had a long journey. My son arrived at 9:52pm. He flew in with 10 others from Atlanta. He actually called me while he was still at Ohare since I was in New Orleans and my hubby was in Atlanta and he was to make the last official call with him. He wanted to hear my voice. I was so happy. He said he got pizza at the airport while they were waiting for other guys.

Yes, IF your recruit's division filled on the day he arrived, then the first attempt at the run would have been today. Sometimes recruits have to wait a few days for the division to fill and so that moves the timeline back several days. See Physical Fitness Assessment (PFA) and Fitness Improvement Training (FIT). 

Yes. I'm just waiting for a tentative PIR date. More importantly, I really can't wait for a phone call!

Cindi, I left info on your My Page a while back to help you get started. I also sent a PM.
