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."

Follow this link for OPSEC Guidelines:



**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.

Thank you, Jesusintheboat!  Happy to be here!

Happy New Year to you and your family as well. Will continue to pray for you and the surgeon.

Comment by John and Yvonne on December 31, 2021 at 10:55pm


Our first meeting was him explaining what the surgery would be. He would fuse T10 to S1. We did find out that he is a Christian man which was a plus. He has been doing these surgeries for the last 18 years.

Our second meeting was a time of asking questions and letting him know if I want to go forward with the surgery. I told him yes. He said he would start the paperwork and get the process going. Haven't heard anything more because of the holidays, but hopefully we will next week. Thank you so much for your concern and prayers. They are so much appreciated!!

I will keep you updated with the date and all the things I have to do to prepare for surgery when we get more information. The surgery will be in Janurary sometime. 

Happy New year to you and your family!

Thank you Moms! we have a meeting with the surgeon next Thursday morning at 8:00 am. Hopefully some questions we have will be answered and the surgery scheduled. I'll keep you updated after the meeting!

Thanks again for all your prayers!
