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 - 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.

Hello DR's mom, 


How are you, how is your SR doing? My prayers are with you. I was hoping gor a prompt recovery. You and yours are in my prayers at night. May your daughter recover quickly.

Hi DR'smom,
No, no phone call yet. Apparently no mom from Ship 02 DIV 920 has received a letter or phone call yet. It seems they are working really hard on the extra drilling that these DIVs that perform in 3 PIR's. We are waiting anxiously with all the patience we can muster. :)

Hi Dani's Mom, I keep trying to respond to your last email the usual way we have been corresponding and it won't go thru. Not sure why ? I did find out that div 121 & 122 are brother divisions so they very well may see each other. If her recruiter remembers to call me tomorrow I'll ask him to explain how it all works ! Try answering your usual way and then maybe mine will go thru. Baffled why it won't work. Have a good day !

Hello Dani's mom, 

Yes, we are going to be all right. So you lived in AZ too, that is great. I do not think we will get "the box". Our son decided he was going to wear and throw away his clothes. 

we cannot wait to get "the letter" :)

How about you?

Hi Dani's Mom - I am doing pretty good - I have been very busy at work today and busied myself organizing photos so I can send some to her in letters.  Yesterday was quite interesting - lots of sit and wait but nice to be able to visit with my daughter for most of the afternoon.  We had to go back home before she went to the airport because flights kept getting delayed.  She made it there just fine so now just waiting for her address so we can write.  How about you?  I think your daughter is a little younger than mine (she's 23).

Hi Dani's Mom, Thanks so much for the words of encouregment, I really needed them today ! I am so proud of her and the woman she will become. At her age I never would have been able to take on this endevour that our girls have. Like I read somewhere, no news is good news so if I don't hear anything then she is fine !! She is such a strong person but like you said , she's still my baby !! Thanks again !!
