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 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).  

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 6/23/2022 - MASK MANDATE IS LIFTED -  Vaccinations still required

Greg isn't much of a writer - he's more into film and photography. This was the only job he was interested in taking so it is quite strange that it worked out for him. I am a little nervous for him though regarding the writing part because it seems like that will be a huge part of A school and quite possibly his job afterward.

She is quite tall but not skinny. She's very photogenic and super pose selective.

I was meaning to ask you how long your husband was in the DEP program. Greg was in for one year waiting for boot camp and we've been told repeatedly how rare this job is.

You really do! The first time I saw your profile pic a few days ago, I had to double check that it wasn't Erica....

Usually Grad & Go are the first 2 divisions so in our case, that would be 301 and 302. Additionally, random recruits in other divisions can also be Grad and Go. It doesn't have anything to do with staying in GL. Check out the discussion on the top of our PIR 9-10-10. Hopefully even if they are grad and go, we'll have some time with them.

Welcome aboard! Come join us on the Indiana group page on this site!
You will also want to search the 'Groups' tab just below the banner for the 'Wives' group.
In the meantime, do you have any specific questions? What will the Hubby be doing after boot camp (in other words, what will his rate be)?
Always remember that there will be benefits to this time apart! Be strong for him, as that is what he will need to be successful.
