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.

My son graduated Friday. He is now in Texas. This has been such an adventure.

 nani - I sent you a friend request. My son graduated in June. He is in South Carolina now in A school. We moved from Illinois to Utah last year. 

Comment by nani on September 7, 2017 at 2:18am

Is this group active? Does anybody on this group have a recruit currently in boot camp? Or has been in the last year?

Comment by Trista on April 28, 2017 at 7:36pm
My son is IT...this is his first deployment and his first enlistment. He's been on the ship since he finished school. Have to been to VB and visited? We went to NYC last year for fleet week and got to tour the's pretty spectacular!
Comment by Kelleypen on April 27, 2017 at 10:36pm

Trista,  we need to talk.  What does your son do?  Mine is a PO1 in his third enlistment.  He's a seabee mechanic, but he's part of the beach team. He's been in the Navy just over ten years now, and this is his first deployment on a ship.

Comment by Trista on April 27, 2017 at 4:59pm

Totally worth going to Chicago! My son was about 2.5 years ago and i wouldn't have missed it for the world! Kelleypen my son is also on that ship! How ironic! 1st deployment for me and I am missing him like crazy but the FRG has been great! I am in West crazy that another Navy mom is so close with a sailor on the same ship! 

Comment by AZ2OH2IL2UT on April 27, 2017 at 4:18pm

Kelleypen- Absolutely. We are from Chicago too so we are familiar with the area. I wouldn't miss it for the world. 

Comment by Kelleypen on April 27, 2017 at 4:15pm

Are you planning to go to Chicago for graduation?  It's well worth it.

Comment by AZ2OH2IL2UT on April 27, 2017 at 2:19pm

Kelleypen-I just saw this and thought it was worth a try. We just moved to UT, otherwise I would have been looking for IL Navy moms. My son just left April 20th for BC. It is an adjustment all around. I was just hoping to find some locals who were going through the same thing right now. Thank you for your support.

Comment by Kelleypen on April 27, 2017 at 11:49am

Sorry.  I have been neglecting this for awhile.  My son is deployed currently on the USS Bataan.  Any questions you have,  we can help answer them.  There aren't many Utah moms who have children in the Navy.
