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 ladies,if all goes well my son who is currently at Whidbey is getting married here in Iowa this winter and will be bringing back his wife.  Between now and then I am going to encourage her to get on this site so that she might meet you and connect maybe in person when they get settled. More on all this as time goes on.

Hey! To anyone who's just moved or has been living in Oak Harbor, I have lived here most of my life and know my way around, all of the fun things to do, things to see etc. If anyone needs help with anything or just needs a friend just let me know :)

Comment by nolaj on March 2, 2012 at 8:51pm

Wow, Keisha this site really hasn't had any action for quite some time.  How was your move to on base?  Is your husband still deployed?

Comment by Carrie1014 on November 4, 2011 at 1:12am
Ok, well we have to actually get the house before we move because this is our first duty station, so I'll tell him to call and give him a list of what I want. We are in the process of trying to get a POA ASAP because we will have about a week from the time he gets home from A school to move before he's deployed.... It's going to be a nightmare. Thanks again!!! Time for bed
Comment by Carrie1014 on November 4, 2011 at 1:02am
Haha ok cool thank you so much for everything!! Can I contact the fleet and family or does my husband have to? He's still in A school so he never has time and I want to be sure it's done right, men mess everything up haha
