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.

Thanks be to God for his indescribable gift! 2 Corinthians 9:15

Jesus, you gave your life for me. I want to give my life for you.

“For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.”  John 3:16

Lord, my heart is full of joy as I celebrate your birth. With friends and family, let me reflect your love and grace in all our festivities.

"Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows."  James 1:17

Lord, you came for all people. Help me to be your hands and feet and minister to the people around me who may be struggling and hurting at this time of year.

And whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him. Colossians 3:17

Dear God, I want to reflect you and your grace and goodness in all that I think, say, and do.

“. . . do not be afraid to take Mary home as your wife, because what is conceived in her is from the Holy Spirit. She will give birth to a son, and . . . he will save his people from their sins.” Matthew 1:20–21

God, help me to trust that you are in the middle of all of the events in my life. Help me to courageously obey your will.

Comment by Blondie on December 16, 2020 at 3:39pm

“She will give birth to a son, and you are to give him the name Jesus, because he will save his people from their sins.”

Matthew 1:21

Lord, help me to trust you even when things do not make sense.

Grace and peace be yours in abundance through the knowledge of God and of Jesus our Lord.  2 Peter 1:2

Lord, I have all that I need for today. Thank you for meeting all my needs and providing me with so many blessings.

Comment by Blondie on December 16, 2020 at 3:21pm

“The Lord himself goes before you and will be with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged.” Deuteronomy 31:8

Dear God, thank you for the way you go ahead and scout future challenges I’ll face. Thank you for your power, strength, and grace that help me to persevere.

Test everything. Hold on to the good. Avoid every kind of evil.
1 Thessalonians 5:21–22

Lord, give me wisdom and discernment about how best to interact with my neighbors, friends, and others in my community today.

[Jesus said,] “Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth . . . But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven . . .”

Matthew 6:19–20

[Jesus said,] “Watch out! Be on your guard against all kinds of greed; a man’s life does not consist in the abundance of his possessions.”

Luke 12:15

Father, please show me what is the message of my life. Help me to be aware of any greed or self-gain that draws me away from it. Lord, you provide all I need. I don’t have to hoard possessions or accumulate money to leave an everlasting legacy. I only have to follow you. Holy Spirit keep reminding me, my goal is Heaven not earthly possessions. Lead me Lord everyday closer to thee and your Father. God, Father, Thank you for sending Jesus to save me. Amen

Comment by Blondie on November 14, 2020 at 12:23pm

Give me a sign of your goodness, that my enemies may see it and be put to shame, for you, O Lord, have helped me and comforted me. The goal of this command is love, which comes from a pure heart and a good conscience and a sincere faith. 1 Timothy 1:5

Lord, I want to develop the personal ingredients that create an attitude of love. Thank you for Loving me first. For coming down to earth and suffering for my sins. Thank you for sending me the Spirit to guide me. Father you are LOVE , thanks for the perfect example. May I be an Example to others.
