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.

The Navy Gateway is $27.00 and I could not afford to go otherwise. Plus,
just a moment ago, we got Orders!
Maureen, myself and lots of other people thought our sailors were going to be firemen when we found out they were FC;s because it is short for Fire Control. Then found out its the weapons systems and the person in charge of the computers or "the firing" of the weapons. When they study radars and dopplers, one girl in our fc/et group went on to her C school in MS for meteorology. Arn't we proud of our sailors?!

I typed in ICFG in the Navy Speak box and didn't get anything. ? I like learning about all the different rates. Mine is an FC

Maureen, Navy Lodge was full for 4th of July for me but was able to book me for the first half. However, the Navy Gateway was never mentioned to me as an option and wanted you to know about it, its on Coronado Island South. Congrats to him for his GL graduation.

Josie please take some pictures and share them with us. Have a wonderful time. Thanks to my very best Navy mom friends, I found a room so cheap, I can afford to go to San Diego to see my son's C school graduation - well over a year after his PIR! I am excited also. He will be a honor graduate. Adn since I can't wear heels anymore (knee, back, hips, LOL!) I have some great low heeled slip ons! But I imagine I'll be wearing tennis shoes most the time.

Marti, congrats on seeing your sailor this week-end.
Comment by CCR on June 3, 2009 at 10:35am
Our state farm had discounts for everything. Good grades, perfect attendance. They give you a CD, let your kids view it, and take the test also. Military, etc. Josie, I was born in St. Louis, are you familiar with the area around St. Charles Rock Rd?
Sue, tell them to stay away from National City and the miles of "crooks". Long story.

Goodmorning everyone. I am not sure if anyone has seen the news yet this am, but a heclicopter went down around midnight off the coast of San Diego (near the Coronado Islands). Our thoughts and prayers go to those families and friends of the servicemen/women.
Comment by CCR on May 18, 2009 at 1:56pm
thank you for sharing the photos and posters of armed forces day
Comment by CCR on May 12, 2009 at 4:51pm
Carol, if I have helped one sailor to not get "took" by the crooks - it was worth all those boring posts you had to read.
Comment by CCR on May 8, 2009 at 2:40pm
thanks for the tip Sandra. I'm thinking there should be a group called Sailor Beware to let them know about these things. Not that we havn't told them already, they get in such a rush and do impulsive things (not unlike ourselves when we were their age) or am I just speaking for myself, lol?
