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.

**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.

To all the New OCS Mom's.... my son graduated from OCS Dec 19, 2008..they usually graduate in 12 weeks my son it took 18 weeks and there was others there that it took longer... they take a % of the new class and put them in holding .. holding is not a bad thing.. it better prepares them for each step they go thru.. RLP is the hardest week.. holding prepares them for this.. they can also be held back for other things

hi Ann My son just graduated Dec19 from OCS he was 20 when he started OCS and turned 21 in Oct.. the DI do seem to pick on the younger ones only becauce they are so inexperienced and so young, in the long run my son said he wouldn't have changed a thing, OCS usually takes 12 weeks for my son it took him 18 weeks to graduate and he has a lot of respect for all his DI's he had
good luck if you have any question just ask... tc Dee
