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.

N4M's Community Guidelines
and
OPSEC.

~OPSEC OPerational SECurity, is always of the utmost importance.

~N4M’s also has Community Guidelines just like any other social media.

~Please take the time to read the OPSEC and N4M’s Community Guidelines.

~A quick note here, from the N4M’s CG’s:

• Don’t Jeopardize the Safety of Our Sailors: Remember OPSEC (Operational Security) (Don’t Sink Ships With Loose Lips) This site and all content posted on it are viewable to everyone on the Internet. This doesn’t mean you can’t share things about your Sailor – but too many details can put Sailors in harm’s way. The following are examples of red flags and should not be shared within this community either by posting or sending via a Group message:

• Sailors’ last names. This includes your username if you share the same last name as your son or daughter.

Some Suggestions:

~If your last name is different from your Recruits it is still not recommended for you to use in your username for your own personal security. This is your option. It is also not a good idea to use an email address as your username for personal security reasons.

~First Names and pictures of your Recruit are allowed but remember, everyone can see it and someone can easily match them up with their "mom". So you might want to consider changing your profile picture to not include your Recruit at least for the duration of BC. Again, your option

~It is also a good idea to make your settings for your Profile Page "viewable only to your friends"

my2navygirls:  Please let us know if your daughter was allowed in without ID. Certainly sounds like she wouldn't be allowed in, but hoping that somehow....she got to go!  Otherwise, hope she was able to watch the LiveStream with her dad at the hotel.

Hope all are enjoying PIR!  It is THE BEST!

Good morning all happy PIR day.
Comment by my4navygirls on April 9, 2015 at 8:43pm
Oh my no I forgot to grab it and she didn't think about her id.
Comment by diannep on April 9, 2015 at 8:14pm

*I HOPE you have her birth certificate or social security card with you.....

Comment by diannep on April 9, 2015 at 8:13pm

my2navygirls:  Did you bring any other form of ID for your 14 yr old?  Here is what is required for those 17 and under, who do not have school ID or other govt issued photo ID (from Family Guide on RTC website):

"17 years or younger who do not possess one the items listed above must present one of the following: school ID card, driver’s permit, copy of their birth certificate or social security card." 

She would need to have one of the above in order to get on base.  There is no "overflow area."  If not on the list, they cannot get on base.

Since I'm assuming that your 14 yr old IS on the list, I have you have her birth certificate of social security card with you so that she can go!  If not, she will need to stay at the hotel with your husband and watch the PIR Livestream there...Many of the hotels will be streaming it.

I hope she can get in!

MY2NAVYGIRLS: You're so welcome :-)
Comment by my4navygirls on April 9, 2015 at 3:55pm
Thank you DREW7062. I know you are bursting with anticipation. Thank you for all your words of encouragement on this site. I'll be praying for recruits for a long time I think. They are under so much stress and challenges. So I just pray for their strength.
Comment by my4navygirls on April 9, 2015 at 3:50pm
Ok I'm in panic mode. Hopefully some veteran moms can help me. We are on the highway traveling from St Louis and I just realized that I didn't tell my 14 year old to bring her high school id. Will she be able to get in? MY husband is not on the list so he wasn't going but I don't know if they both should just stay at the hotel or should they come and hang in the overflow area? My SAILOR told me there was one but she might be wrong? Please HELP!!!
Comment by my4navygirls on April 9, 2015 at 3:36pm
Catmom that is my favorite scripture. I sent it over and over again to my SR during boot camp to remind her of that our God is in full control.
Comment by CatMom509 on April 9, 2015 at 3:01pm

You're so very welcome, DREW7062~~

Yep, our God provides what you exactly need when you need it--no more and no less!
