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.

RESUMING LIVE PIR - 8/13/2021 - ONLY 2 GUESTS ALLOWED

**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.

Any suggestions on how to get a sponsor for staying at Navy Lodge in Bremerton or Bangor WA for homecoming with my sailor being at sea?

Comment by Tulip on Friday
So many things to be grateful for this year…our daughter started her first “professional” job and passed her psychologist licensure exam, had a cancer scare that turned out to be benign, hubby retired, is continuing with his diaconate studies with our church, and our sailor is on his way home from a very bad deployment. Hope everyone had a blessed Thanksgiving with loved ones, while I know many of us are missing our sailors! Prayers that you can be reunited with them soon.

Happy Thanksgiving to all. I hope you all have many wonderful things to be thankful for....

I am thankful that my son is happy in the Navy and seems to have found his niche! I do miss him so much tho.

Comment by Chipmunk on Thursday

Happy Thanksgiving to everyone!

Pizanche - Even if it is just the two of you, may you have a restful day.

Comment by Pizanche on Thursday

Happy Thanksgiving all!!  It's a different sort of Thanksgiving this year - just 2 of us.  Enjoy your day and be safe and hug those close!

B'sNukeMom - Better Late than Never!!! 

Funny, I had an email from AAA today telling what airports not to fly out of because they have poor rates for on time and connecting flights!!!

Comment by B'sNukeMoM⚓️MMN on Thursday

They made their connector flight and should be landing in less than 2 hours!  I'll take that HooYah Chipmunk!

Comment by Gigi on Thursday

Northwoodsmom - I want to see the cupcakes and thank you. I’m really hoping to bump off with your boy!! 

Comment by Chipmunk on Wednesday
