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.

Thanks to the many moms and more that are here and ready to help when a sailor is in need! It is amazing to know that no matter where our sailors travel in the United States there is a mom there ready to rescue them with a hot meal, place to stay, or help to get back on the road!

To be added to the list send me (Susan mom to Niko) a friend request. Then you can send me a private message with your name, location and phone number. Then you are added to the list!

Time for a happy post - update on our Sailor Rescue List "adopted" baby!  As her proud Navy papa said, "This is what beautiful looks like."  What a sweet dad!  

Comment by Marcy ~ Corpsman Mom on August 29, 2014 at 10:20pm

Hi guys, everything worked out OK, he got home and is set for his deployment.  Your offers of financial assistance are not needed but were passed along and she's so grateful for the show of support.  YOU ROCK!

Please keep us posted Marcy!

Comment by Marcy ~ Corpsman Mom on August 27, 2014 at 6:06pm

Wow, that is awesome of you!!  He is calling me and I think we are getting it straightened out.  Hopefully.  Keep your fingers crossed!

Marcy - I don't have miles but if they have to take the loan, I'd be happy to contribute $50 towards paying it back.

Comment by Marcy ~ Corpsman Mom on August 27, 2014 at 4:21pm

Hi moms!  Our baby Abby's mom is hoping for some help; here's what she's posted:  "Does anyone have any airline miles they can give my husband to get home?? He is a DoD police officer in Bremerton Washington now but he is mobilizing to Africa on September 7th. He was doing a courtesy mobilization out of the NOSC there but it was disaproved because the NOSC here messed up his paperwork!!!! Now he needs a ticket home and the prices are too high for us right now. If you have miles can you consider him please?  He needs to leave there by Friday!!! Help!!"   He will be mobilizing out of his NOSC on the east coast now; he needs to get to Charlotte or Asheville, NC.  Navy Relief can provide a ticket, but it's a loan they have to pay back.

Marcy, thanks for the update. I love her!

Comment by Whit and Stephen's Mom (Ann) on August 7, 2014 at 7:14am

She is a doll!  Thanks for sharing Marcy.  I think about her and her family a lot!

Comment by Marcy ~ Corpsman Mom on August 7, 2014 at 12:14am

Just for a smile :) an update on our precious Navy baby Abby…not a baby anymore!

If they don't find anything, let me know the info and I can see what I can do. I'm in Edison Nj and would be willing to pick then up and bring them back. No need to be in the airport with little ones for that long!
