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 4/26/2022** Effective with the May 6, 2022 PIR 4 guests will be allowed.  Still must be fully vaccinated to attend.

**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).  

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 3/07/2022**

Mask Mandate has been lifted but you are still required to be vaccinated.


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.

My SR is in this group too. Can not wait til it is 1/20/12

I tried the link to order a Div. T-Shirt but it didn't work if anyone figures it out please let me know. I would love to buy a few for the family and one for her boyfriend.

Hello, I am sp happy to hear from others in the division, how is everyone holding up, we are done to 50 days but who is counting lol


49 to go and no letter .... I guess I shouldn't spend to much time waiting by the phone or looking out the window for the mailman. I guess no news is good news. I made my hotel, car, and flight reservations. I hope everything works out.

Can't wait to see el amor de mi vida!!! 50 days yay!!

I keep seeing the same names and faces in our group. It just makes me feel closer to her talking to the mothers and girlfriends in my daughters division . I will recognize you when I see you at PIR.

I know exactly how you feel , n letters here yet either, my poor mailman, must think I am a stalker, I watch for him every day and run to the door when I see him.  lol, maybe someday I should tell him why.  I miss my girls voice, miss her rolling her eys at me and actually miss her the messes she left  around the house.

Glad I am not the only one feeling this way! I have caught myself checking the mailbox more then once in a day.

Cant hardly explain what it means to read the letters and know she is doing ok!

Hi everyone! 

My SR is also in this this division. I'm excited I found this site. I'm so ready for PIR! I already have my flight and hotel booked :]

As for the letters, my SR told me it would be while before they could write because they have been so busy. Doesn't stop me from going to my mailbox everyday just to check. But he did say they would get to call this week if everything goes well. My phone has literally been attached to my hip all week. 


I got a letter today!!! They got to write on Sunday! 

I got letters today as well WOOOOHOOO!!!!!! So excited.

Okay now I'm freaking out! I want my letter!! :(
