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.

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.

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.

No Joanne you are never really alone. Jenn's appointment was 4:30 California time. And some have been changing names because their sailors are in the intel programs for security sake.
Comment by Anna on September 17, 2009 at 8:28pm
Oh Pat - I wouldn't say that !!!!
Comment by Anna on September 17, 2009 at 8:21pm
Joanne,
You should be able to delete your own comments. There should be a little x on the right hand side of the comment box. Just click that. If it doesn't work and you want me to delete them for you just let me know. You're only talking about the ones with your email address - correct?
Comment by JM-ISmomx2 on September 17, 2009 at 7:50pm
Yes, Joanne there are more of us here. Just checking my farm
Comment by JM-ISmomx2 on September 17, 2009 at 7:19pm
Joanne you are back to normal, uh at least what is normal for wonderful you. :+)
Comment by DC - G'mother of My Fav Sailor on September 17, 2009 at 6:48pm
Joanne, your old page with all your friends is still there. I have to go to my page to get to it. But what is interesting is that comments listed on your page stopped three hours ago. Then if you go to the "new" page, you see your recent ones. Sounds to me like the gremlins are out ... and it isn't even Halloween.

I suggest trying what NavyMom suggested.

Joanne, did you create a new account?
Comment by Anna on September 17, 2009 at 5:37pm
Joanne,
Can you still read us? Do you have your page still? I wish I knew more about this site to help you but I'm afraid I don't. Can you contact Elle in admin?
Comment by JM-ISmomx2 on September 17, 2009 at 5:35pm
Joanne I would welcome the change in weather they are predicting 90 in CA tomorrow.
Blondie is that a flight from Spain or the moon?
Comment by Anna on September 17, 2009 at 4:49pm
NavyMomXXXY,
Yes you are in the right place!! Glad you found us!

Pat,
I must have missed something in your past - did you used to live in NE Ohio?
I read your post and couldn't believe what I was seeing - - I used to live in Concord and drove RT 2 into Euclid to go to work everyday. Are we talking the same place????
Anna
