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 4/26/2022** Effective with the May 6, 2022 PIR 4 guests will be allowed.  Still must be fully vaccinated to attend.

**UPDATE as of 11/10/2022 PIR vaccination is no longer required.

**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).  


RTC Graduation

**UPDATE 8/25/2022 - MASK MANDATE IS LIFTED.  Vaccinations still required.

**UPDATE 11/10/22 PIR - Vaccinations no longer required.


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.

Hey Betty,
A couple of us have tried to reach you and don't know if we have your email wrong or not but we are having a gathering on Saturday @ noon @ J.Christophers in John's Creek on July 31st.

We have at least two other moms that have sons that are Nukes on the USS Geo. Washington! Hope you get this message in time and can join us!

We are so close now! We are driving up starting the 2nd. We're staying at the Springhill Suites in Waukegan - about five miles up the road. My husband is prior service, but he got out of the Army back in 1990. I'll be wearing a navy blue short sleeve shirt with little anchors around the collar and I am currently trying to find a pair of khaki cropped pants. I can't wait!!

I am honored that you have sent me a friend request. At the moment, I am having some minor difficulty with private messaging. My N4M "addressbook" seems goofy. When I select a friend to send a message, the person I checked is not always the person who receives the message. For now I am not adding an friends until I can figure out what is wrong with it. However, you can reply to this comment (click on Comment Back) and it will show up on MY PAGE, even though we are not friends yet. LOL. I am always in the New Moms Stop Here group. So drop in there too. OK.

Of particular importance is the use of the “Search” function. You should do searches in blogs, forums, discussions for answers in previously posted threads BEFORE adding a NEW blog/discussion. Finally, it takes time to learn how to use this site. Be patient. Check your page & status box often.
