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 4/26/2022** Effective with the May 6, 2022 PIR 4 guests will be allowed.  Still must be fully vaccinated to attend.

**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).  

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 6/23/2022 - MASK MANDATE IS LIFTED -  Vaccinations still required


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.

The lack of contact is the worst. It has been a very emotional roller coaster of a summer for me. I'm relieved it's coming to a close. He'll be able to call and text from A school. Lack of communication is rough. The boot camp group saved me many times. Especially just reading that my feelings were validated and felt by all the other moms. Stay strong ladies!! You can do this!!

Well, hey, three of us can make it active again. :D My son is 2/3 of the way through A School. I hope you're both planning on going to PIR. It's amazing.

Prattlebrat, I see you recently asked the same question! When does your son graduate?

Comment by nani on September 7, 2017 at 11:47pm

Is this page still active?

Hi, just joined this group. I have a son in boot camp. Are any moms still active on this group? I'm so grateful my son has the church support while there.

My son just arrived at Goose Creek for A School. He's inactive, but I want to get his records transferred anyway. Does anyone know what ward he'll be in?
