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."


**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.

**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.

Welcome to the Division Discussion for Divisions 137 - 138

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!!!

Hello fellow Ship moms :)

Hello! How are things going with this awesome Division? Has your SR talked about the group as a whole yet? 

The sun is shining and that makes a sad day better :) I haven't received a letter from my son yet so I am taking it for granted he wrote to his father since he called me and his grandmother on the 21 but not him - I think that's fair so hoping I get one sometime this week :)

counting down until 10APR2015

My son says he's meet a few that are LS (logistics specialits).  Are these the SR's of any of the mom's on here?  Suddenlypam....isn't your's one too?  He's headed to Meridan, Mississippi for A school.

Yes, My son will be going to Meridian after graduation. Glad there are those that will be moving on together in the same division. :) My son just said there are a lot of great guys. I didn't get a whole lot of detail yet. I'm curious with this week's letter if he gives a little more insight to how the division is working together and getting along. 

mine is staying in GL, I haven't had any communication since his first phone call and he didn't say much then other than they were a group of pretty good guys. Hoping I get a letter this week with a bit more info :)

Are you ladies on the Facebook Page for our PIR 4/10 Group? 

It's under: PIR 04-10-15  NAVY BOOT CAMP   10 Divisions  (137-144, 809 & 922)

I am but haven't been on computer much for the last couple of weeks-

I've received many letters and several phone calls from my husband: 2 social phone calls and 3 calls during the week days to discuss paperwork (his recruiter didn't do a good job of providing the Navy with all of our information).

He expressed to me that his Division is doing REALLY well! I need to reference more in my letters at home but they did really well as a group on recent tests. He also said that he feels they are starting to come together more as a team and getting along. Great to hear!
