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 4/26/2022** Effective with the May 6, 2022 PIR 4 guests will be allowed.  Still must be fully vaccinated to attend.

**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).  

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 6/23/2022 - MASK MANDATE IS LIFTED -  Vaccinations still required


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.

WONDERFUL news, PinkysMom. Hope you are enjoying seeing your girl at PIR today! And thank you, RDC's, for encouraging Sara to get her through effort and she did it!

Yea! Sara called me yesterday to let me know that she was heading to BS...I have not heard anything else, but I am treating this as good news & I am sorry I did not let ya'll know sooner, but I was already on the road armed with knowing I could see her whether she graduated or not...but sure praying the whole time she was going to keep trying til she passed.
I'm here & will see my baby march with her Div...Go! DIV 002!!!!

I heard my sons voice for the first time since he left on Sept. 21st. It was awesome. He was very tired and rambled quite a bit but I just loved hearing his voice.

diannep: could be what you said even though the mom conveyed it differently. We don't always really understand the bits and pieces of what we hear without the background to digest it. So pinkysmom, I'm still hopeful for you but I might not have the order of things right.

@Sacmom Jason will be staying in GL for A school for the AECF field! The sad part is he has one of the longest A schools and he could be in GL for about a year. I am thinking about relocating to be there with him. What is your Sailors next move?
Comment by Sacmom on November 16, 2010 at 9:19pm
Jason's wife...your enthusiasm is wonderful! It is so difficult to capture what we feel for them on this day...where is Jason going next?
Comment by Jasons Wife on November 16, 2010 at 8:19pm
Yes my husband sounded so exhausted. For a quick second i thought he fell asleep on the phone but that phone call was just what i needed to get me thru until friday!!! wheeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeewww!!!!!!!!
