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.

Reenis35, hi! Well talked to Jayson last night and
He is better just going to take time. You know how
Impatient kids are. He thinks he should be all healed
up already.
Well if our kids are on the same ship maybe they'll run
Into each other. Jayson should be easy to spot for a while.
I guess I'll be baking over the weekend too.
Have a great week and keep in touch.
I'm Jayne.

No problem, thats what were here for to support each other. It turns out my daughter moved to the same ship as your son LOL. so I`m sure they will meet upand chat about us smothering moms but hey thats our jobs, They don`t realize that when they hurt we hurt even more for them.

I`m glad it turned out to be a sprain and he is healing well.

I plan on baking and getting a package out this week.

Be well have a good nite keep me posted.

Btw My Name is Eileen

@reenis35 Hi! Well, Jayson finally got his package. I don't think the cookies lasted very long after they opened it though. I've been a nervous wreck it seems my dear son was playing basketball Thursday after class and twisted his ankle. I got a call and said mom I twisted my ankle and it hurts really bad what do I do. My response go to see Medical. His response I don't think it's that bad. 10 minutes later I get a text with a picture that has a huge knot above his ankle and now it's really starting to hurt. He did go to the clinic, fortunately nothing broken just a really bad sprain. He was put on crutches and given some pain pills. He went to the hospital on Friday to be seen to make sure there was no tendon or ligament damage, and was given a clean bill. They will see him tomorrow again to make sure he's doing ok. I felt so bad though he called Friday night almost in tears because it hurt so bad. I was in tears because I couldn't do anything for him. I'm sure as a mom who has been away from her daughter that when they are hurt or sick all they want is their mommy and when we can't be there it's harder on us than on them. I did talk to him today and he says it's just annoying now so I feel better. Sorry to "vent", but the hubby just doesn't understand not being able to be there when they need you.
I'll ask Jayson if he knows Joelle. I know there are a lot of them there, but since they were in the same division during BC they should atleas know who each other are.
Well, have a great week and we'll catch up soon.

@Txnavymom My daughter`s name is Joelle. I live in Ocala Florida moved here from NY 4 yrs ago, My daughter stayed with her dad finished school did a semester in college, then decided on they navy. My daughter said today that she gets teased about her accent everyone thinks shes from Boston LOL she left for bootcamp on her 19th birthday I`m so proud of her. Sorry I can just go on and on.I'm sure Jayson will get his package My daughter had told me that if I send anything USPS it will go right to her ship, if it is UPS or FEDEX then she will have to go pick it up on her lunch break.
