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.

What an amazing day! I cried so much... LOL When the doors opened I saw my Dustin right away... He looked so amazing and it was so hard not running to him and swooping him in my arms!!! He is certainly a man now!! His confidence and his grace and his strength is great to see... I only had him until 3:30 becuse he had watch this afternoon.. We were able to go back to the base at 6 and hang with him at the rec center until 8:30... We get him the rest of the weekend!!! Yeah.. We had 13 family members he was so happy we were all there... I could not stop staring at him!! Proud does not even begin to express I how I feel about him... He is happy and that is what makes me happy.. He was born to be a SAILOR!!! Many of his DIV members stopped to tell me he was a great RCPO and leader.. He saif it was hard being the leader and friends with his DIV.. But they understood after taps he was their friend...

I was late to the Meet and Greet because of the wonderful Chicago rush hour... I am sorry I was not able to meet all of you..But it was so nice to meet all of you that I could.. It was wonderful... : ) This is the begining of our journey together.. I LOVE YOU ALL SO MUCH!!!!

I got a phone picture of my grandson John,my sailor...WooHoo! From what i could see he looked so handsome and grown up.I just got off the phone with him and he sounded wonderful and happy.They are waiting for a train to go sightseeing. First thing he wanted was food. Have a great weekend with your sailors. Love to all!
