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.

I like the idea :) It's going to be a challenge to decide where to meet.
I like the idea too, but Wendy's right. Where should we meet? Maybe we can go on a 'singles cruise' together.
You all can count me in. It would be nice to do a singles cruise or maybe some type of resort. I am sure we can figure out a mutual location.
I think a cruise would be the best for financial planning unless we go to a resort that is all inclusive
lets just put stuff out there......................where has everyone always wanted to go .......and how do you want to get there???
Did someone say "get together"??? I'm all about get-togethers! A cruise sounds awesome!
Ok Everyone, let's get together and take a singles cruise. We'll be the most popular group there and everyone will have heard about the Navy 4 Moms Singles Group. It will be tons of fun!!! Maybe over spring break 2010 to someplace warm - with group rates!!!
Hugs, Cheryl
So where oh where shall we go???
Aruba, Jamaica, oh I want to take you , Key Largo , Bahamas..............................come on pretty mamas............(and Jon ) of course
Sign me up !! :>)
Lauren, I love that song!
Makes me want to go to Cocomo!! "We'll get there fast, and then we'll take it slow...." LOL
Anyway, a cruise gets my vote! And, yes, somewhere warm. Even though I live in Florida, warm is always good. A cruise to nowhere or anywhere where I can lay out by the pool while a scantily clad young man brings me pina-coladas! (Oops, sorry, Jon)!
I am all about a cruise and being on a beach with drinks being served to me. Oh Yeah..................

Jon, we'll find you a lady in a skimpy bikini to serve you
I'm new here, but I'll be an old timer by next spring.
I'd love to go on a cruise. I'll start saving my pennies. :)
I was thinking that we could leave out of somewhere like New Orleans .......what you all think???
And for any of you that would want to drive ..'id be happy to do that.I believe I have somewhere to park my car down there...........or tell me where you'd like to leave from
