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). 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.

**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.

“The Lord is slow to anger, abounding in love and forgiving sin and rebellion.” Numbers 14:18

Lord, I’m grateful that you are slow to anger and don’t express your anger the way people do. Help me to control my anger and show mercy to those who provoke me. Help me become more like you.

He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds.

Psalm 147:3

Father, please continue to bind and heal the broken areas and wounds inside me, my family and friends. Allowing us to be restored to health and wholeness. Through Christ Your Son Amen

going through some tuff times here. Death of young mother of 2, fought Cancer for 6 1/2 years, funeral today.  Close friend's husband is brain dead, she's not ready to pull the plug.  Are we ever ready?  Breaks my heart to watch.  Doctor friend past away, his wife had a stroke in June and is in an assisting living facility, which are shut down because of Covid, she missed his funeral. My daughter is having marriage problems, nothing I can do. Military and miles away, in process of moving to England for 4 years, has a 3 years old daughter. My husband's unemployment is running out next week, we only get 379.00 but what will we do without it?????

Heavenly Father, Thank you for holding me up and walking this lonely, scary life with me. I Trust in your wisdom and Love. Sending Prayers for all these and everyone, everywhere that is hurting.  May your Love Comfort them. Amen

Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit, but in humility consider others better than yourselves. . . . look not only to your own interests, but also to the interests of others.

Philippians 2:3–4

The World needs this now. I learnt it this way years ago (60's)  

J - J is for JESUS, he takes 1st place

O - O is for Others 

Y - Y is for you

Put yourself LAST and spell JOY!

. . . let us draw near to God with a sincere heart in full assurance of faith, having our hearts sprinkled to cleanse us from a guilty conscience and having our bodies washed with pure water. Hebrews 10:22

Yet I am always with you; you hold me by my right hand.  Psalm 73:23

Lord, Thank you for forgiving and refreshing me with a clean start everyday.   Father, for all my grown-up responsibilities and roles, I’m always your child. Thank you for holding my hand and going with me each step, day by day. May I always look to you and listen for your voice. Holy Spirit lead me, May I never loss sight of my Salvation through Christ our Lord.  Singing Praises because I have an Awesome God!

The Lord upholds all those who fall and lifts up all who are bowed down. Psalm 145:14

Lord, I’m so grateful that you’re there to catch me when I fall. I lean on you, knowing that you provide me with a firm foundation unlike anything else.

I think we could all pray that prayer! Thanks for posting! :)

The Lord is good, a refuge in times of trouble. He cares for those who trust in him. Nahum 1:7

Keep yourself pure. 1 Timothy 5:22

The Lord is slow to anger, abounding in love and forgiving sin and rebellion  Numbers 14:18

Lord, I don’t want to act on my feelings or let them control my decisions, but I can’t ignore them either. Help me express them constructively. Jesus, Sometimes I feel so worn down, dirty and tired from all the daily battles of life. Thank you for making me clean again. I’m grateful that you are slow to anger and don’t express your anger the way people do. Help me to control my anger and show mercy to those who provoke me. Help me to Love like you do. Through Christ your Son, Our Lord Amen

Let us hold unswervingly to the hope we profess, for he who promised is faithful. Hebrews 10:23

The Lord upholds all those who fall and lifts up all who are bowed down.
Psalm 145:14

God, I’m so grateful that you lead me and reveal your path before me. While I can’t always see around the next bend, you remain my hope and my compass. Lord, I’m so grateful that you’re there to catch me when I fall. I lean on you, knowing that you provide me with a firm foundation unlike anything else.
