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


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.

Hi ForHimIWill!
Just wanted to say Hi and that I saw you were from Lafayette! Its hard to find people in IN that have a Navy connection. So your husband is at OCS? I know what that's can be a bit shocking if this is your first time experiencing the military life. I saw your comment about moving to VA, what is he going to be? SWO, Nuke, Supply, etc. I know its hard but the best thing to do is wait until after OCS to even think about moving. There are SOOO many factors that play into where he'll be stationed and the timing of those factors too. Well, i gotta get going but if you are on Facebook you can find me (AMANDA MARIE SMITH - location is Broad Ripple, IN) on there too if you want to chat about anything, no question is dumb... especially with a military life! haha. Hope all is well, stay strong! :)

Don't forget to check your status box. See upper right hand corner. That is where you see if you have any messages from friends. Friend requests (I just sent you one) and you can go to Settings to change user name, email notifications and your page appearance. My son went through OCS in late '06 and '07 - seems like decades ago.

Hello. My son is a nuke officer on a sub. I see you have joined the True To Our Vows group - there are a number of really nice young women in that group. I have met a number of them because we live in CA and we had a retreat for young wives, fiancees and gfs.
