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.

OK - couldn't resist the invitation above any more. My son is in Groton, waiting to start sub school in SECF. Can't wait for him to get home to WA for Christmas Friday. I am also a sub vet, having served as a nuc MM/ELT on two fast attacks out of San Diego over a six year tour in mid-80s. Now I work for the Navy as a civilian, working often with nucs on carriers and subs based in Bremerton and Bangor. It doesn't get any better than the Pacific Northwest!
