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.

Congratulations, everyone!
Comment by My2BoyzMom on January 14, 2015 at 7:08pm
Wow! I've never breathed a bigger sigh of relief! Congratulations everyone who got the call. My new sailor got to talk with me for almost a half an hour. I didn't think it was possible, but I'm even more excited to see him now than I was before! He gave me a list of things to bring and pass off at the airport on Saturday. Underwear wasn't on the list but when I mentioned people here were bringing some, he said, "oh... Yeah... Please do!" And wanted me to thank you all for the idea!

I haven't posted much here, but I do want to thank everyone here. Reading other questions and suggestions has helped me reach this point and I'm glad you all take the time to help.

Now I'm off to find a board for those with sailors going to the same A School. See you all on Friday!!
