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.

These are great pictures. I love the one with you holding his face close to yours.  He looks so happy and so do you.  It looks like you have a very special relationship.  Oh, what we can tell from pictures.  I have a picture at MEPS just like yours.  Won't it be good to get your hands on his face again!!

I agree!!!!  It was great to chat.  It is incredible how much are SR's are alike.  I prayed for all the SR's this morning.  We will definitely keep in touch.  Have a great weekend.  Only two more weeks to go.  Where are you staying when you go up there?

I am glad you were able to have that time with friends.  It is great to have people around you who truly care .  I wrote to my Chris last evening and told him about you and your son.  I look forward to our connection.  Fortunately, we should be getting our of class within the next 30 minutes.  This is brutal.  I bought a aromatherapy message at the Safety Harbor Spa for cheap and plan on calling today for my appointment ...haven't done that for years:)

I dont know if you ever got my message sometimes when I answer from my iphone for whatever reason messages dont always go through, but I did respond that it would be great to talk when you get home this evening.  Anyways, I just wanted to ensure that you knew I wanted to chat at some point...I think it would be great to have a Navy Mom around the corner (so to speak)...thanks for finding me and we will talk soon :)

Alicia, How awesome to have a local friend becoming a sailor together.  My cell phone is 727-505-4979.  I am a teacher and am currently in an ESOL class this week and next.  Generally am home by 6.  Love your photos...When is your Christopher's PIR?  It is interesting that they are in the same ship but different Div

At 8:55pm on May 6, 2012, Shelly said…

Hi Alicia,

Yes, My Christopher went to college.  He graduated with a business degree, but nothing happening in is field.  He is older, 25 years old, so he is really ready to get to work on his future.  He had considered military when he graduated high school, but he decided to go to college.  I think this was the right decision for him.  In order to keep focused, I am now looking forward to the PIR and looking for flights and hotels.  If you get any good info on these, let me know.  I hope you have a good week, and try not to count the days.  I know its hard, because I am doing it.  I think, one day at a time is a good plan.  And plenty of distractions.
