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."

Events

**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.

Hi NewMilmom! So great to see another MA mom! So your son is in San Antonio. That's great that he was able to fly out so quickly! My son waited in Great Lakes for weeks. It's so nice to see progression. I see you're on the MA MOMs as well. :)

Hello,  recognize a name here already - Hi VintageGal!!!

for all others a bit about me:  my new Sailor is sitting in holding pattern in San Antonio waiting to start A school.  We are praying that after the winter break he can start his actual classes & keep moving forward...but only time will tell.

We have planned for him to fly home for part of the base shut down & pray that is still a go when the  time comes.  As in RTC Momma keeps reminding herself & others, 

"No News is Good News"....

I'm sure you are ready and hopefully you get confirmation today!

Hello! Hopefully my son will be arriving in San Antonio by this weekend!

Hello all, I just joined the group as my sailor arrived in San Antonio last week. I do see a familiar name, hello Vintage! LOL

Comment by VintageGal on October 4, 2020 at 6:25pm

Hi :) has anyone heard word from their Sailors of what it might look like in terms of holidays and leave out of San Antonio? My son graduates BC in a few weeks - he had to go back to ROM because someone else tested positive that was put in their division. I was just thinking about Christmas and whether or not we could go there or he would come home or if they’re keeping them in a bubble... any news would be appreciated:)

Hi Jill! well our boys will definitely get to know each other if they haven’t already because my son has the same PIR and school. :)
Comment by Jill on September 10, 2020 at 3:41pm

Hi! My son's PIR date is October 9th and then he will be heading to San Antonio for MA A school. I pray everyday that he and his fellow SRs are healthy and can continue on this journey as planned.

Comment by VintageGal on September 1, 2020 at 8:26pm

Hi! My son's PIR for BC is in October and then on to Lackland for MA training!

Morning, 

My SR PIR is March 13, 2020 and needless to say I'm VERY DISAPPOINTED that her brother and I can't be there to witness it.  I understand the decision but I'm still not happy.  She will be going to San Antonio for A school and of course not having the opportunity to give her "stuff" at the O'hare airport I'm putting a box together to overnight.  Please share with me any recent comments about sending packages to San Antonio. What service has had the most success (USPS, FedEx or UPS). 

Thank you and I look forward to your comments.
