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.

To harpist mom and dmr:  Welcome!! Here is a better Cryptology group on this site:

Lot's of info from veterans and newbies alike and much more activity.  Length of school depends on when your daughter classes up, her rate, etc?  My daughter is a 4 year CTT and is currently in her 3rd week of C school.  I visited her last month and stayed in Pensacola beach.  Maybe a little more pricey but worth it to get her out of the ghetto of Corry for a couple days.  Anywho, definitely join the group above and scroll through and check out the links.  Way more info there...and Welcome both of you!!!

Daughter got there 3/3. Need inof on everything - especially length of time for school, local airport & hotel info ...

Comment by harpist mom on March 3, 2012 at 8:55am

Hi, My son will be headed to Corry Station one week from today.

Comment by Krspies - CTN Mom on February 5, 2012 at 10:23pm

Hello there Crypto Moms!  I'm new to this group.  My Son just arrived at Corry Station last night.  He's a 6 yr CTN.  Good to meet you all.
