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.

When the storm has swept by, the wicked are gone, but the righteous stand firm forever. Proverbs 10:25

God, you are my rock and my salvation. Today, I have nothing to be afraid of because you are stronger than any storm that comes my way. Thank you Father.

Let your gentleness be evident to all. The Lord is near. Philippians 4:5

Lord, help me to understand what it means to be gentle to those around me. Show me your gentleness so that I can reflect it to others. Give me Patience, Understanding and Empathy Lord to relate to others as you would. Thank you for using me. May I continue to do your will. Amen

“Now this is what the Lord Almighty says: “Give careful thought to your ways.” Haggai 1:5

Dear God, I want only to follow you in all areas of my life. Guide me with your wisdom and discernment to know when to step out in faith apart from the crowd. Amen

Thank you Navymom2!  It's always reassuring to have others pray for us.  My low back has improved I can go up 3-4 steps on my own before I have to grab a railing or person!  My midback/neck/shoulder - every time I think it's better, it gets worse again, of course my job looking down, writing....doesn't help. but just folding laundry is a struggle, can't hold my arms out or up. can't look up and reach at the same time. as getting dishes from high cupboards. Can't roll over in bed.... But I do Praise God that the pain is less and I'm only going to the doctor once a week now.  Still, doing Chiropractic, massage, decompression, ice and heat. not healed enuff for stretches.

God's Blessings Upon all of you.

Thanks again for the Prayers

Hi Blondie.  I had to take a moment to encourage you sister. Seems like you have always have a lot on your plate. Do not feel guilty for taking some rest days to relax and recover. The enemy whispers these thoughts of guilt to overwhelm and distract you from what you know in your heart you need. 

"Father GOD we lift up Blondie to you right now. Please heal her and take away any sickness from her body. Let her rest and relax knowing that we serve a GOD of miracles. Our help comes from you the Maker of the Heavens and Earth. Your will be done. Thank you for loving us and caring about everything in our lives. May you be glorified. In Jesus mighty name we pray together. Amen."

I'm struggling here ladies.  Not with my soul but with life in general.  Feeling exhausted and lost.  So many people need me but I need to heal.

. . . now is the time of God’s favor, now is the day of salvation. 2 Corinthians 6:2

With God we will gain the victory, and he will trample down our enemies.
Psalm 60:12

Lord, thank you for another day. Give me the wisdom, strength, and energy to do what needs doing. Jesus, no matter how hard things seem today, help me to remember that it’s only a temporary obstacle on the road to your ultimate victory in my life. This is just our temporary home, someday we will see our Glory with you.

If the Lord delights in a man’s way, he makes his steps firm. Psalm 37:23

In his love and mercy he redeemed them; he lifted them up and carried them all the days of old.  Isaiah 63:9

Lord, I look ahead and get afraid sometimes. I don’t see a way through the obstacles ahead. Help me to remember to follow you and just to take the next step. Abba Father, I get so tired and weary from all the demands and responsibilities of life. Thank you for taking them from me and for carrying me. I place my worries in your hands, Lord. Amen

Comment by Blondie on September 24, 2020 at 2:24pm

But the Lord is faithful, and he will strengthen and protect you from the evil one. 2 Thessalonians 3:3

The Lord is faithful to all his promises and loving toward all he has made.  Psalm 145:13

Lord, give me the strength I need to face what’s ahead. Protect me from the evil one and keep my faith strong.   Even though my circumstances change and seem to go up and down, I’m grateful that you’re always there, my Solid Rock.

“I have loved you with an everlasting love; I have drawn you with unfailing loving-kindness.” Jeremiah 31:3

Dear God, thank you for showering me with blessings and revealing your unfailing kindness. Allow me to bless others with the same spirit of generosity.
