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.

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.

Does anyone know if all Divisions 096 graduate on March 16th.?




Yes, they are listed on the RTC site.  You may also get more information about PIR and RTC on this site.  You should get a form letter as well if you haven't yet from your child with that info.

Hi all, wow, this is a large PIR group! Let's get this division going and try to meet up. What about yellow scarf and blue anchor? And this sounds like a push division.

Do you have a recruit in 12/94?...we are wearing navy print scarf, but you can wear anything you like.:) there ar e 14 divisions grad that day

My son is in this division and is going to Pensacola after bootcamp. Has this division been getting phone calls, a few letters? What kind of communication are you getting? My daughter in law gets a few letters and we receive even less, lol. Oh, and are you all (families) communicating elsewhere, such as FB?

My son is also in 94. He has sent quite a few letters but no call. I have spoken to another mom whose son has called once for 15 minutes. He told her they have some slackers and screw ups in this div who keep everybody in trouble. thats why they don't have much time to write or call. We have a group on facebook too. Go to us navy recruit command on fb then search forums.
I got a real phone call today!


Yay! I'm glad.

So far I haven't found any other moms from 94 on here or on FB. Guess it's just the 2 of us communicating.

Hello all, my son was pushed back from ship 9 - div 085 he was to P.I.R. on March 9TH but will now P.I.R. with ship 12 - div 094 March 16TH. WHERE IS EVERY ONE ? for such a large TG I thought allot of mom/dads would be here... Any way I just wanted to say hello

Hi Tabby,  94 is a small division and there are only 4 moms that I'm aware of on this site and also on FB group.  Welcome aboard.
