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.

Hello from Houston, my son leaves for BC 11/25  and has no idea how cold it will be, it’s no comparison to our on and off winter days.

Hello Texas moms!

 My kiddo, a former student of Texas A&M,  leaves Dec. 9 for the Great Lakes.  My dad was in the Navy during the Korean War, but all of this is 100 percent new to us, so I'm trying to play catchup on all the information.  We live in Houston, near the Med Center.

Yes, Chicago winters are rough on Texas boys!! He will learn to love the weather in San Diego:)

Comment by Greek Mom on September 24, 2019 at 11:19am

Yes! LOL..Texas boys are use to heat and the sun, not being knee deep in snow! San Diego sounds so nice! I bet he is very happy to get that assignment! 

Comment by Rhonda on September 24, 2019 at 9:58am

Thanks Greek Mom. He just got his orders and his headed to San Diego in December. Good thing because winter in Chicago is really cold for a South Texas boy.

Comment by Greek Mom on September 24, 2019 at 9:49am

Hello Rhonda....Congrats to your son! My son enlisted two years ago and is now stationed at Kings Bay Georgia. I am from San Antonio and graduated from Judson many moons ago! LOL! I got married and moved to New Braunfels, where I still reside.

I'm from San Antonio and my son just graduated from BC and is waiting for his QM A School to start. Anyone else from San Antonio?

Comment by LeendaG on August 15, 2019 at 9:37pm

Hi Fellow Navy Moms!

My sailor son is currently deployed and has been gone since May 1st but it feels like so much longer than that.  

I hope everyone is doing okay.  I am trying to read through all the comments and love that there is so much love for our sailors expressed here.  

Praying for safety and success to all of our sailors.

BTW, I am in East Texas in a town called Henderson which is close to Tyler, Texas and about 100 miles East of Dallas.

Hello from Amarillo, Tx! My son left on July 18th. Just impatiently waiting for his box and form letter.
