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."

Events

**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.

My cousin lives on the beach at Pensacola and my Aunt & Uncle are in Mobile so he'll have family near.  The minute they say we can come, we're there.  They should be able to have their cars at about week 6 in A school.  We hope to bring him his car and see him, even if it's for a moment!  

Hugs!

Talk about your sticker shock!  My son is also frugal, thank goodness!  I'm sure they will both take extra care with those uniforms!  Our son will be in Pensacola, FL... so just 6 to 7 hours away.  How about your son? 8 days until PIR day! :):)

Yes.   I agree.  they walk past awful fast.  It is going to be hard to grab a glance of our SR.  I hope he gets to be closer to you for A school.  At least there may be a chance to see them at A school.  That is if they get liberty off base.  I am anxious to find out when Battle station 21 will be.  Down to 1 week left!  :)  Have a good day.

At least they don't have to write a check for the uniforms, it comes out before their money goes into their accounts.  Although getting less really stinks when you don't get paid a lot.  Right now they shouldn't have too many bills hopefully.  My son has no debt so only has phone charges & storage car insurance currently.

Hello.  Yes, we are going to make signs and send him pictures to his phone so he will see them when he gets his phone back.  It sucks that we can't even see it happen live.  Have you watched a graduation yet?  I would love to send a letter to the Captain, not asking for anything special but to offer a suggestion.  I wish they would have the Sailors demonstrate some of their cadences and marching.  My SR enjoys that part and I wish I could see what he is talking about.  However, I don't want my SR's name connected to mine.  LOL  I certainly don't want him to have any consequences from my thought.  I don't even care if it was something they started after SR graduates.  Just for future families.   Our SRs are going different places.  Mine will stay in Great Lakes, which may work out for us.  That is if he can go off base for some liberty, even just for a few hours.  We are close enough to drive down for an hour or two.  One week to go!  So exciting.  Talk to you soon.

Hi DoriBry,  I noticed on the PIR site that P&G said her son returned the dress blues because they cost $1000. Was wondering if you heard anything.  I didn't think they had a choice because they have to have them.  Haven't heard anything about that from my SR or on the FB page. 

At 8:44am on January 14, 2021, proud and grateful said…

Good morning!!  It sounds like our boys are doing well.  :)  My SR and your SR are good friends apparently.  I think that is so neat.  Every time my son calls, the 3 times, he mentioned your SR.  I hope they stay in contact after BC.  Have you been able to drop your SR from your health insurance yet?  I wrote my SR to ask if they have any documentation of an insurance.  My Human Resources is saying I need proof that he has insurance before I can remove him. I don't understand how difficult the insurance companies make it. We are getting close to PIR.  I am very excited for them.  Have a good day!

Good morning!  Yes I got the call also.  It was wonderful to hear his voice.  I got the same when I asked about a call for Christmas.  I am guessing not now that we received this one.  I am okay with that now since I heard his voice and he is doing well. Not only that but my SR and I figured out that your SR and my SR are friends!  LOL  Apparently they talk quite a bit, I guess when they can.  :)  Too bad they aren't going to A school together.  It was crazy to figure we know the same family.  LOL  My son gained like 15 pounds.  Give or take because he isn't sure which clothes he was wearing or if he had boots or not when he weighed in.  He said he enjoys the food.  How about your son?  Did your son get his wisdom teeth out?  Mine was able to keep his for a bit longer.  He says once in A school they may remove his top 2.  His bottom ones never grew.  I am still so excited from the call.  :)  Have a good day.

Yea! I'm so glad you got to speak with him...this might be our Christmas gift call, so if we get another that's just happy gravy! :) Have a great day!
