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.

**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.


RTC Graduation

**UPDATE 3/07/2022**

Mask Mandate has been lifted but you are still required to be vaccinated.


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 303 and 304

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.

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.

My son is ship 12 division 303! 

My son is ship 12 division 303 also.

According to my daughters letters---they are doing very well---they had their 2nd PFA tests and went thru Hell Week and Marlinspike---They get their Pictures taken tomorrow and getting ready for TEST 2-----I have not heard anything negative about the group--so I will assume all is good and they are working as a Team....Have you heard from Ashley?

Yes I always say more than one woman in an office is too many. They need to remember thet they are a team. There's a lot of hormones in their division. Some are bound to not get along. LOL I will be excited to see them at graduation. What state are you from stephsmom ?? I'm in Charlotte NC..

So you're not too far from me.  Are you flying/driving to graduation??  We are driving...

That's awesome.  We don't mind driving we are just getting back from a Sedona trip so it will be fun!. We are staying at the Navy Inn just off of base.  My husband is in the military so he didn't have a problem getting a room.  I think it cost $40 a night.  we've stayed in Armed forces inns all over the country!.  LOL. Sarges meet and greet it is the first time I have heard of this??  What is it??

Unfortunately we wont be getting in until after 9 I'm afraid so I will miss the meet and greet.  :(

Yes I have heard from.Ashley. She is very excited to get to her next school A school. She writes every Sunday. She's probably one of the older of recruits being almost 24. She said the girls tell her she looks like Demi Moore. I asked like GI Jane or A Few Good Men?? I'm so excited to see her in a couple of weeks. I know they've all worked so hard.
Any word on Div 303. We were on vacation and haven't heard anything. Still planning the 800+mile drive tomorrow. I'm sure Ashley did not call because we were away.

I haven't heard anything yet either.  My son is in 303.  He wrote last week that they would do Battlestations on Tuesday/Wednesday.  After reading different discussion, the BS is overnight and they don't get processed until early afternoon.  So hopefully we hear this afternoon.
