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 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**

RESUMING LIVE PIR - 8/13/2021 - ONLY 2 GUESTS ALLOWED

NO MASK, NO ENTRY

**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.

Valtameri,  The tea house sounds like fun.  Where in CT?

Comment by Valtameri on February 11, 2014 at 11:24pm

And Donna, thanks for chiming in on the undesignated list. I think it really helps to hear a positive story there. Many of them seem discouraged, don't they?

Comment by Valtameri on February 11, 2014 at 11:10pm

Nice!

I was thinking it might be fun to have a mom's tea ... I met a former Navy GM whose family now owns a tea house in CT. 

Comment by Donna on February 11, 2014 at 10:56pm

The luncheon was great.  I think we had 16 moms.  It was so nice to meet up with  everyone.  We'll do it again in the spring.

Hi bclmom -- congrats on Power School graduation!

How did the get-together go a few weeks ago. Did everyone have fun?
