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 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.

I've "heard" folks talking about these pictures, however; I have not seen them.  Does anyone have any they are willing to share or know of an order form to get them??

Hi, I just joined Navyformoms. My son Charles left for Boot Camp 04/14/10. I received the box yesterday and the first official letter. I didn't have the heart yet
to open the box. I won't handle it very well I know it. I am glad to have found this will be good for me to get connected. One can feel pretty isolated when her child is gone.....

Yes I got the box today as funny as it may be it was nice to smell his clothes and spell the cologne that he was wearing. I did really well due to the cfact that I got the letter first and was at ease by the words that he wrote... he had a sense of humor so I guess he has good spirits considering what they may be going through during these first couple of weeks. I sent my 1st letter today since I did not have the address until last night. Can't wait to get one back.
Thanks JessicaB we really appreciate your help and the good information that you give us... I look forward to meeting you all at PIR...keep me posted and if we are all going then we will exchange information,.

I'm assuming this is where we will be. Son arrived at GL on 4/14. He's in Ship 06, Div 930. I have the box so far, but no letter yet.
