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."

Events

**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 139 - 140

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!!!

Hope we get a call today!!

We got a call on Saturday!  Lesley, did you get your call?

No I did not get one,did anyone from Division 140 get one last weekend?

Sorry Division 140!

Sheilagirl46, it is my understanding that they will remediate those who cannot pass the PFA. There is a class they will go to for help or they will ASMO to another division a couple weeks behind.

Sheila:  They will keep working with her on it.....the test she MUST pass is the 3rd and final PFA which is taken a week or so before PIR.  It is rare that they would drop her back into another division in her PIR group at this point....but there are times something like that can happen to give her more time.  If she doesn't pass her 3rd PFA by her division's BattleStations date, she will call you and tell you.  Depending on when her BattleStations date is, she will usually have at least one more chance to pass and still be at PIR, and sometimes up to 3 more chances (if her BattleStations is the first night they go through).    If she doesn't pass by then, she will not have a PIR but she will remain in the FIT division and keep trying (10 to 12 more chances---every 48 hrs---not on weekends though).  Once she passes when in FIT, she takes BattleStations, has a short Liberty, and heads straight to A School, no PIR once she misses her own.

Prayers that she has wings on her feet and gets it done!

Anyone gotten calls on a Sunday yet?
