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 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.

Thanks for all of the info on the Nuke Moms page!  to answer your questions (and ask a few more of my own...) I am only about  hrs from Ballston Spa. Im right outstide of Philly, but our families live even closer than that, so there are plenty of halfway points should be get coordinating weekends/ things go well with the re-acquainting.

You said he would be on hold when he gets up there? Sean graduated Power School back in June, and has been on hold since then in Goose Creek. He told me (unless he misunderstood) that he starts prototype August 29th.  Personally, I find it hard to believe that they would start a prototype class so close to the end of a fiscal year ( Maybe he forgot that I know when the new yr starts in the navy... October)


did your husband have hold in SC AND in NY?


I kind of figured he would have most weekends off to start. But he as always strived to be the top of his class ( was honorman in A School) so Im sure he will study on the weekends too (whether mandatory or otherwise)


THanks for the heads up on possible lack of communication during the later stages of Prototype and the swing shifts. That shouldnt be a problem for me... When we were together when he was in A School, I told him not to worry about calling, and just make sure he was doing well. I dont NEED to talk to him as much as i WANT to talk to him :)

At 4:47pm on March 4, 2011, Nik&Haley said…

At 12:24am on March 4, 2011, Nik&Haley said…
I feel your mustache pain! hahahahhaa how long is he going to keep it?
At 8:50am on January 28, 2011, Nik&Haley said…

That sounds really awesome! Def. go to grad school, its worth it. Nik is hoping to do prototype in NY, which would work out perfectly for us. But we will see haha it sucks having no control. If they don't let him, I will be flying back and forth all summer to SC from MA, which will really stink!.

At 3:33pm on January 27, 2011, Nik&Haley said…
No, I have 1 years of grad school left, then a year of clinical rotations, so I wont be able to move where Nik is until my clinicals. I am hoping to do them near him. I will be in SC in March for a fews days however.
At 10:50am on January 27, 2011, Nik&Haley said…
haha thanks I will :o) I'm slowly getting involved with all the Navy stuff! and trying to meet, or talk to some of the gf's of his friends!
