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 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).  Still limited to 2 guests maximum.

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.


RTC Graduation

**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.

Is anyone wearing their SR/division ribbons to meet & greets tonight? Thanks!
Comment by Denise Millett (Ship2 Div 943) on September 6, 2012 at 2:03pm
Weighing pros and cons: drive 19 hours plus fuel and wear n tear on vehicle. Cheaper to fly.
Comment by bethr311 on September 6, 2012 at 1:59pm
Denise, you'll be fine. Kind of wish I was flying but can't complain. My dad is driving a van with five us altogether. See everyone at Sarge's later!
Comment by ellen0502 on September 6, 2012 at 1:52pm

Ok everyone. If your sailor is staying in GL for school make sure your sailor finds out how far they can go from base. In April they were restricted to a 50 miles radius PIR weekend because they had not phased up to phase II.

Bottom line is ask your sailor they will or should know. If they don't know, find out before you make plans to go further than 50 miles. Better safe than sorry!

Boarding plane soon! Planning on Sarge later. Getting butterflies! Nervous!
Comment by ellen0502 on September 6, 2012 at 12:46pm

Your sailor must remain within a 50 mile radius of the RTC this weekend.

Have a great weekend you are in for the best hug ever!!!
