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 3/07/2022**

Mask Mandate has been lifted but you are still required to be vaccinated.


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 daughter is going there, I was "told" it is not nearly as much as what we think.

We have verizon and just need to add global to our plan.

This is good, however your son will need a global phone. He most likely knows if his is or not.

Skype is a good way to communicate also.

When does he lve? Mine is the first group to go. She is part of Air Det.


I was just in PH and heard the 40 saying they were going to be pretty busy. Many projects to do. In a way that is good, they will have a hard time being bored. This is also bad as they will get upset if they work non-stop.

My daughter would prefer to work and do what needs done as oppose to sit around, (in her defense, she also likes to skate of early in the day if it is possible) cuts the boredom.

Comment by Tobianne on October 28, 2011 at 9:25am

Timon? Or something like 

Mine is Guam, she is Air Det. She has many friends going where your son is going, heck they most likely know eachother.


She is still making payments on hers as well. She just wants to know she has a car when she gets back. Sad though with them not knowing....back to where actually!!! For the decommisioning things will be fine, the other is just a gamble at this point.

Main body goes elsewhere and then from that point I get confussed, she was bravo comp. now as I said she is Air Det. I am thinking your son must be Main Body?

Kym, my daughter is leaving hers in the "rot lot".

I have been told as long as they have full coverage and a good and propery fitted car cover, they do fine in the lot.

Where is your son going? My kiddo lves the first week of Nov.

i'm a new NMCB40 spouse, trying to meet other NMCB40 spouses to hang out with.
Comment by Tobianne on June 27, 2011 at 12:31am
julieb, I sent you a message. I hope this look up for her soon. Thery do all go thru the downs. My kiddo is not "fond" of CA either. She loves Gulf Port and wants to go back there so badly. It is like home she feels, hot and humid and of course that she is just comfortable in the area makes it that way.
Comment by julieb on June 25, 2011 at 10:23pm
How great to find you guys!!!! My daughter is new to nmcb40. She just got to Port Hueneme when they all got back from deployment. At first she absolutly loved it. Now she is down in the dumps. I know she can't be the only one? Any advice for me and for her. It is so hard to hear the sadness and depression every day!

sorry to hear that


Comment by sash510 on March 28, 2011 at 7:59pm

I wish b ut my son probably won't be able to come back before maybe August at the earliest...but more than likely November.


Comment by sash510 on March 28, 2011 at 12:16am

I was asking because I knew that the advance party was back but was still waiting to hear about the rest of the that was the group my son was with...however, I got word from him today that he is in the states...I figured he was close as the time differences were changing when he would call but wasn't sure of exactly when he would be state side again...Thank you for the response to my last statement.


Comment by sash510 on March 26, 2011 at 9:49pm

Any further information about the return of the main body of NMCB40...I have been checking on the hotline but so far no change in the posting...Thank You.
