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 - 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.

My daughter recieved a package today..forgetting she ordered something asked if it was from me..after laughing with her she told me it was self tanning supplies ..she said "mom I'm so ugly here I have to be tan" part of me knows she joking and the other part so much..she has always been self conscious and worried about what others think and I guess I was hoping that part was gone but she has only just gotten to A school...while I am so proud of her this broke my heart thinking about the pressures of today on women..even in the mitary....I'm hoping the longer we travel through this the more confident she will become..she is so beautiful inside and out and I'm hoping she will see this through this process!

Amanda, you just changed your profile name, which is fine, but I just posted a note in the BC Mom group. Hopefully it will be figured out. I put some other group links in your discussion.
