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.

Divisional T-Shirts may be ordered at:


(American Outfitters is the AO. They are the manufactures of the Shirts. MWR is for the Morale, Welfare and Recreation deptartment at Great Lakes. A portion of the purchase goes back to support the Recreation Fund)

Here is the direct link to the ordering page for Division 917:

Ooops!  Sorry, momma!  This IS after PIR.  Sorry about that....involved in too many PIR groups!  :-)  Ok-- going to find the link now where you can order!  Congrats to your sailor!

Comment by diannep on March 9, 2015 at 2:09pm

momma:   You cannot order divisions tshirts, etc now until after PIR.  That is a change in policy (they changed suppliers).  Your SR can order for you during Bootcamp, however.  I will post the link to the tshirt info above in a minute.
