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 - 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

~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"

I sent her with luggage and another backpack. We'll see how she does with all of that! Thanks for all of the info.

I think I need to send her sheets and not sure what else. Not sure how comfy the ones there are.
Comment by diannep on October 4, 2015 at 12:38pm

Glad she had no issues, angelmomma.  We had always been told that the extra bags must be black or navy blue (solid) since that is what they have to carry while in uniform.  Glad she was ok! 

Comment by angelmomma12 on October 4, 2015 at 12:27pm

I sent my daughter along with her red duffle bag and she didnt have a problem yesterday. It was so nice to hear that her shipmates were helping her along. My daughter however cannot wear any of the clothes I sent with her for at least a week, so that is something to consider. However, I think she feels a connection that at least she has it. 

Comment by diannep on October 3, 2015 at 10:28pm

Jeanette:  You can get there when they are checking in.  So if she insists on the extra luggage, you can send it....but she has to be able to manage all of this luggage herself.  So keep that in mind when you are choosing the extra bag for should be solid black or navy blue, by the way.
