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.

Prayer Request for Yvonne
Yvonne got her surgery date this afternoon. It is scheduled for January 18th. The doctor said it would be an 8 hour surgery. She'll probably be in the hospital for several days afterward. Between now and then we'll be going to several pre-op appointments with various doctors.

Father I ask that you keep this Pastor and his Flock in  Your Loving Care. I ask that you wrap this community and their loved ones in Your Arms, give them Comfort that the world cannot give. Show them how to care for each other through Christ and turn to You in their time of need.  Use this experience to draw them closer to You Lord. Through Christ Your Son , Amen 

HUGS Happy

I have a prayer request.  My brother is a pastor in central Oregon.  A couple in his congregation, close friends of his, have been quarantining due to Covid and tonight while my brother was checking in on them over the phone the wife started screaming.  My brother rushed over to their house not knowing what had happened and found her trying to resuscitate her husband.  Despite the EMT’s and their best efforts he was pronounced dead at the hospital.  My brother is shocked and heart broken.  They offered to care for the widow at their house or hers, since she is still quite ill herself on top of everything she’s just been through, but she insisted on being alone.  She has no children or family and her in-laws are elderly and unable to provide much physical support. 
Please pray for the widow.  What a terrible loss at a vulnerable time.  They’re in their mid 40s.  Pray for my brother also… that God will comfort his heart and guide him in how to effectively minister and provide comfort and support to the widow and family involved.  And please pray for his congregation, as well.  The couple was very involved in the children’s ministry.  Jason will be missed by all, but especially the kiddos who he loved on every week.

 Thank you, Ladies!
