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.

So after too short a leave my sailor will be reporting for duty on the Antietam in September. As a back up plan we were thinking of getting an airline credit card for emergencies. Any suggestions on which one might be best during his time with the Antietam ?

Yes, Jenismer, Japan is amazing!! And we loved the people! We rode the bullet train to Kyoto and stayed there a couple of days, spent a day in Tokyo, saw Kamakura, and saw some other sites nearby Yokosuka. One of the highlights was when our sailor took us on the ship. And we had a beautiful view of Mt. Fuji from the deck of the ship! It was a wonderful trip!

been awful quiet on here lately.   I know I'm guilty too, I mostly watch the ship's site on fb and spend more time there.   IF anyone here is on the NavyforMom's fb site and we're not friends on fb,  look me up  Elane Lacroix.   I'm always looking for communication with other LO's of my son's shipmates.   I don't hear from him enough.   Thank you.

Elane, thanks for the google alerts pic. I have signed up for google alerts but haven't gotten anything yet.

Comment by Elane L. on July 16, 2013 at 5:30pm

I don't seen mine is this group. have caught him in some of the other all hands on deck photos, tho.  

Comment by jenismer on July 15, 2013 at 9:42pm

Hey  Mike's Mom (S-PACT/Yokosuka,JP)  - I think both our sailors are in this picture.  Mine happens to be the tall one at the end that usually eludes the camera.  ;)
