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

CRF230dad - Just curious, are you blonde? Wait you're a guys, so I can say that.  So you must be bald.  Do you have Caucasian written on your drivers license under "hair color"?   j/k

Remember, as new post are added, all the other stuff gets moved more and more back, what happend to be page 84 a week ago, is now page 97.  Next week it will be page 112....  I just keeps moving.  

So, like I said right now it's page 97... Just look for my post by date & time... I posted it March 24th @ 10:48pm.  

I never delete stuff.  I say what I say, and move on.  So if you ever seen a post by me, it will always be out there (somewhere).  The only way my post get deleted is by moderators or admins, which has happened quite a bit... I'm a sailor, what can I say?

I'm waiting for you to say this:  ~ha
