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.

Hi everyone - looks like maybe no one has posted here recently?  I live in Auburn and my daughter left for boot camp on March 14 and graduates on May 6.  Would love to connect with local Navy moms!

Glad I could help get you connected to our group.  Have you found your PIR group on Facebook yet?  That is a great way to meet other family members with SRs who will PIR the same date as yours.  If you are part of the NavyforMoms or Navy moms & PIR Friends facebook groups they can help you find it easier.  I think I joined a PIR group on this site too when my son went thru BC, it was two years ago so the memory is a little vague lol.  Hope this all helps & feel free to friend request me on facebook if you need any more help, I will help if I can or ask in the No Cal facebook group they are on there much more than here. :-)

Thank you Sylviar 14. I joined the group and then started looking at previous comments and noticed the dates. I was going to leave the group today and was glad to see your post. I've sent a request. Thanks again.

Hi dave7val,
We don't get on this page too much as you can probably tell by the dates of posts lol.  If you are on Facebook we have a page that we are on a lot more  You will find a lot of us on there & we have a meet & greet for anyone who can make it next Sat, 8/29. Possibly one of the ladies can make an event on this page too but as I said we aren't on here nearly as much.  You are welcome to connect with me as well, my son has been in a couple of years now.  He's on his first deployment right now so it's a whole new experience...hope this helps you connect with more of us. :-)

Good Morning Mom's. I'm new to the Sacramento area and have a SR 4 weeks into boot camp. Division 312. He's met a few others from Sacramento in division 311 or 312 but has not mentioned any names. Any mom's with an Sr in one of those divisions?

<See my new profile pic with Chrissy! I had  a good visit with my two sailors yesterday. I got to talk to them more since it was just the three of us. They had fun, we went wine tasting to 4 rooms open downtown , and they took me out to dinner at Bella Rosa. She bought me a bottle of wine and a wine glass from my favorite Scott Harvey.I think they bought wine from all the rooms! I lost count, lol They spoiled me! But boy can those sailors drink, they called me a lightweight lol! I just loved showing my new son-in-love our historic downtown. They went back to Sac after dinner, as it is closer to Aidan and my oldest daughter.

I saw a young teenage girl selling Girl Scout cookies yesterday. She reminded me of Chrissy,so I bought some cookies. Chrissy enjoyed girl scouts so much. I think that the girl scout program has helped her do so well in the Navy. I am so proud of her.
