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.

Oklahoma. He has always hated winter. He had livestock that he had to care for year around, and when he finished BC in January, I asked him which was worse, livestock in winter or BC. He said livestock was WAY worse! LOL! Where are you from?

That's funny! Where are you from? My son is saying just another winter day...
Comment by Jennifergs on March 17, 2016 at 7:20pm
I did! I bet my son is freezing. He thinks it's cold anywhere.
Comment by ISH-MOM on March 17, 2016 at 3:42pm

I had to look up TM!
Comment by Jennifergs on March 9, 2016 at 12:21am
He is a nuke. He went in the fall and joined them when they returned from deployment. He is a newbie or nub as he says.
Comment by ISH-MOM on March 8, 2016 at 11:04pm
That's great! Is he a nuke? Not sure what an EM is...when did he join the crew?
Comment by Jennifergs on March 8, 2016 at 10:44pm
My son is an EM. He says the crew is great!
