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.

Hi Audrey.  Thanks for your friend invitation.  I have a friend who told me my son's box will probably arrive Tuesday.  I am excited and scared at the same time!  I'm anxious to see if our sons will be in the same division.  I got a note from Jessica saying that most likely my son's PIR date will be June 24.  Possibly June 17 or July 1 but most probably June 24. It depends on the division he's in. I'll be calling his recruiter tomorrow.  Hope all is well for you!

Hi Audrey.  I just joined Boot Camp Moms today.  You and my son have something in common.  They both left for BC on Tuesday, April 26.  There's another Navy Mom here whose son left the same day.  I'll let you know what division he's in when I get the info.  So you got his box already?  I haven't seen anything yet.  I wish the best for your son.
