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 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.

I am so sorry I missed your post.  I did not get a notification that anyone had posted a comment.  JayDee gave you spot on information though. Thank you JayDee - coming through once again!!!! Unfortunately Navyat34 I wouldn't have any information about places to stay there!!  I have been there more than a dozen times but I've always stayed in RV parks, or our daughter's apartment/home!!!!  I'm spoiled!!  She lives really close to the West Gate now.  I hope you had a good time visiting.  How long will your daughter be staying there???

Comment by JayDee659 on April 29, 2021 at 12:56pm

Navyat34 welcome! Pensacola is a great town. Very touristy so there's no shortage of hotels but they can be pricey. There is a Navy Lodge there so I'd try that first. Perdido Key is close to there and while it's a tourist location, it's more laid back.

Enjoy your time with your girl!

Anna. I see you are going to Pensacola.  I just made plane reservations to Pensacola To see my daughter Memorial Day weekend.   Do you know anything about the town such as where to stay    This is my first post since my daughter graduated BC in March   Hope to connect with you     

Comment by Anna on April 16, 2021 at 12:46pm


I will be traveling to Pensacola to visit her soon and will gladly share that hugh high-5 with her.  Most likely will follow it with several hugs!!!!!!

I hope all is well with you and your family. Everyone staying healthy????

Thanks JayDee!! She has been working a long time for this. She still has to wait until next March when her current rotation ends but she will then transfer to the Medical Service Corps.

Comment by JayDee659 on April 16, 2021 at 12:25pm

Anna this is awesome! Congrats to you and your daughter! I know how proud you must be!

Here is the article on Jennifer.

Women in Aviation Gulf Coast Chapter

Member highlight of the week, Jennifer! #waigulfocast #womeninaviation

Jennifer grew up in Augusta, GA flying with her Dad in a Cessna 172 since she was 8 years old. She moved to Cleveland, OH and got her private pilot’s license through Kent State University and graduated with a Chemistry degree from the University of Akron. In 2010, she joined the Navy and was commissioned as an officer in 2012. Her first duty station was NAS Pensacola, where she trained on the T-6B as a Naval Flight Officer. She selected the E-6 Mercury in 2014 and transferred to Tinker AFB, OK. Jennifer received her Wings of Gold in 2016. While at VQ-3 in Oklahoma, she became an Aviation Safety Officer and found her passion for aviation safety. In 2019 she transferred back to NAS Pensacola to teach Crew Resource Management at the Naval School of Aviation Safety. In 2021, she was selected for lateral transfer to the Navy’s Aerospace Experimental Psychology program and will receive her second Wings of Gold in 2022. She has her eyes set on a PhD in Aviation with a human factors specialization and is hoping to stay in Pensacola, FL for her next tour. In her free time, Jennifer enjoys playing with her dogs, exploring the outdoors, and RV-ing!

Hello Ladies,

Wow, I haven't posted anything for awhile, been crazy busy with some family things.  Nice to get all caught up with everyone!!! My sailors have been doing well.  Officer daughter just got accepted for a psychology program she has been wanting to get into and we are so excited for that.  There was an article done on her through the Women In Aviation chapter which I will share in a separate post.  Our sailor son is in Japan on a 6 to 7 month deployment.  He put in for Warrant Officer but was not selected this time.  He was waiting word at the same time his sister was waiting to hear on her application and he told her this was her year and he'd wait until next year!!!!  How sweet!!!! Hope everyone is doing well and the same for their sailors.
