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.

Welcome to the Division Discussion for Divisions 061 and 062

These two divisions are brother divisions and will be training together from the beginning through BS21 their final test. Your SRs, soon to be SAILORS, are becoming friends, and some of them may be heading to A School together.

Get to know each other, your SRs are!

Please still use the Main Wall of the PIR Group to post questions, and concerns, we “veteran” moms don’t always get to into the discussion area as often as we would like.

Every single question that is asked is important Every single concern is genuine Every single member is important to us We don't want to accidentally overlook any of them or you.

Hang in there!!!

What week are they in? Anyone from California?
I'm not sure which week (2 or 3) but I'm from Pennsylvania
From Florida! Daughter in div 062. Hope one of us can answer the trivia question on the Navy bootcamp Facepage today so we can get a picture. Question hasn't been posted yet!

I haven't seen the trivia question for today either. Gonna give it my best shot!

I think this is week 3.

I think they are in week 3

My daughter is from Cali (Northern) and I think they are in their 4th week...

Those of you that have gotten phone calls from your SR, how did they sound?? My husband sounded very unhappy and miserable and I'm not sure if its homesickness or what, but so many people say that their SR sounds so happy and that has me concerned :(

Arkansas here!!! My son told me that he was in processing for two weeks and they are a push division. He is in division 61. I talked to him this past saturday.  He arrived 11/19

My daughter has talked about the "push" division as well.  She says it is because of the 3 major holidays, they are getting pushed along faster than other groups b/c the RDC's, etc get holiday time off as well, so they get down time.  That's as best I can explain from what she has told me.  Hope that helps.


Maybe it is because it is you that he is missing. Most of us have sons or daughters that are in boot camp. I would imagine that leaving mom or dad wouldnt be quite as hard as leaving a spouse. I may be wrong, but...... I think leaving our kids is harder on us than it is for them to go to boot camp. Hang in there!!!!!

You're probably right! I can't imagine my daughter going to boot camp and she's only 8 months old lol I have a completely newfound respect for you mommies!!
