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.

Hi! I got ours - I haven't looked at it though, it came to me at work.... I scanned it real quick and saw Aaron at I missed him when they passed by during the ceremony.... I was so tired from traveling all night - my 12 yr old son said theres Aaron! but both my husband and I missed him!
Aaron is so sick right now, and he started classes yesterday... I am praying that he gets over this bug quickly!
Kathy, How did it go? I've been thinking about you!

ok Jill, I'm watching skating , where are you :) I bet you are having a great time.... I love to watch skating... my household of guys just don't understand though.
Kathy, Aaron is really liking SC he starts classes on Monday so we will see what he thinks then.... he has been spending his time cleaning intil about 2:00 and then free time afterwards - he has been learning to play volleyball lol I asked him if soccer is now out of the picture ( he loves soccer) and he laughed and said no I'm teaching them soccer next... :)

Aaron texted me that he classed up today! yahoo! he has been enjoying sight seeing around Charleston, but very anxious to get started with classes.
How are you doing Kathy? anything new to report?
Comment by Carol Aileen on March 16, 2009 at 11:26pm
Hi all :) - Kathy, I'm sorry to hear you are feeling so bad! I hope you get feeling better soon! I've been busy packing up boxes for Aaron also. He actually had most of a box packed before he left, but now he is requesting more stuff - too much for one box so now trying to fill up 2 boxes.... I don't know where he is going to put all this stuff! he says he has room....

Aaron is waiting for another class to fill up so he can start his school.... he is cleaning in the mornings and has the afternoons free. he is busy making his room "livable" meaning tv xbox and such lol I asked him when will he have time for xbox? and he said he is going to have to have some time to unwind. I guess I can understand that, I hear that the classes and studying can be pretty demanding.
He had a good experience today - him and his roommate had dinner off base - and when they went to pay someone in the restraunt had picked up the bill! they were amazed.

We just got home - good to be home! we sure had a nice trip though! Aaron got his stuff only 1 day late so not too bad. I need a vacation from the vacation!
Comment by Carol Aileen on March 9, 2009 at 7:53pm
Aaron called today - he was a little upset - today they were to find out about classing up for school - he didn't class up - but his buddy did - means he has to wait for about 2 weeks to start school, and he might not be able to stay rooming with his friend. Jill and Janis did your boys class up? Aaron said that 4others did not. I could not hear much of what he was saying.... we are touring DC at the moment and was on the Metro when he called. I wish I could call him back! Hopefully he will have his cell phone soon.

Congrats Cheryl! Keep us posted!
Jill, My son is a Nuke also - ET. I just talked to him tonight, he loves Goose Creek so far! He said it is so nice - warm and beautiful.
Comment by Carol Aileen on March 3, 2009 at 11:08pm
did anyone get any photos of div 108? I was not sitting in front of the Div. so didn't get any of them there - and what I did take didn't turn out very well....
Jill is Ron in the Nuke program?
