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.

Hey everyone! I'd love to hear what all our sailors are up to these days! And Moms/Dads/families, too! I imagine some (many?) are near the end of their Navy commitment. Plans for the future?

Hope all are well! NavyMom hugs to all my sea sisters (and brothers)!!

Thanks Ellen!

I haven't received ours yet either.  

Comment by ellen0502 on April 27, 2015 at 11:16am

TracyR, It can take a while on the DVD and yearbook. My sons took about six weeks to get sent out. If you don't receive it in the next week or so, call the NEX at the RTC and ask.

Does anyone know how long it takes to get the copy of the DVD of graduation and the yearbook?  We received the pictures we ordered but not the DVD or yearbook?

Blessed Sunday!

    "Then the multitudes who went before and those

     who followed cried out, saying 'Hosanna to the Son

     of David! Blessed is He who comes in the name

     of the Lord!' Hosanna in the highest!"
