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 - 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.

Congratulations to all who graduated from A School. My son had a pretty short TTrack. He graduated  September around the 9th and started Power School the first week of November. Communication has been very sparce because of the crazy study hours he has to put in. He is finding Power School very difficult but he had been out of school with no academics for 8 years. Not trying to scare any of you but it is no walk in the park do prepare yourself for the lack of communication and enjoy the time you get to talk to them now.

Hello Everyone!  It has been quite some time since I have been able to log on.  Between work, school, and studying for my research cert...phew I'm beat.

Congrats to all that have Sailors graduating or completing comps, that is fantastic news!

My son started A school yesterday.  He did not get home until close to midnight.  He said the first day was slightly overwhelming, but the subject matter was easy.  Hopefully the material continues not to be a challenge.

This will be the first year my son has to file his own taxes.  I claimed him for most of 2020 because he was still a minor; which from my understanding, effects how he files his taxes.  Anyways, long story short, I would like him to have someone help him with filing his taxes for the first time. Is there anywhere on base he can get help or somewhere close to base?

B'sNukeMom, Oleander just sent me pictures of the snow at her house. Pretty impressive for the desert.

Thank you for the warm welcome! My sailor is actually in Prototype right now and working toward finishing the pipeline by April (fingers crossed....)

I look forward to hearing all your stories!

Re STEP continued...and supply give aways. Check out their website at and please pass the word if you know anyone who might need help.

They are very respected of only 3 official organizations designated to help/collect money for the Bonhomme Richard crew (the others were USO & the local Navy Relief-good company).

Great news. My favorite organization, STEP, Support the Enlisted Project is expanding from southern California to the Seattle area. It was founded by a former nuke to help lower ranking military with financial issues. They also have frequent food, diaper and

B'sNukeMom you're invited! Come on down! We're settled but not unpacked. Got a bunch of boxes in the garage and more in storage. Unfortunately I'm out of space. I see a Goodwill trip in my future...

JayDee - I might have to make a trip to FL lol!  Are you all settled in?

Comment by JayDee659 3 hours ago

B'sNukeMom that is chilly for you guys! I just got off the phone with my Nuke and she said that snow is expected in Virginia Beach tomorrow. 

It's sunny and 78 here, in fact I was lounging by the pool while I chatted with my Nuke.
