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 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).  Still limited to 2 guests maximum.

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.

FOLLOW THIS LINK FOR UP TO DATE INFO:

RTC Graduation

**UPDATE 7/16/2021**

RESUMING LIVE PIR - 8/13/2021 - ONLY 2 GUESTS ALLOWED

MASK AND SOCIAL DISTANCING IS REQUIRED. 

NO MASK, NO ENTRY

**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.

This is new to me

My youngest son enlisted into the Navy, and he left an hour ago to begin boot camp in a different state he's never been too. This is his first time leaving home and flying on a plane, I've been crying on and off I miss him already, and I'm doing my best getting used to him not being here. Any kind of support, kind words and virtual hugs would be awesome.

Hi Gina

My son just went to boot camp as well and is quarantine. Sending big hugs your way. I know what you are going through. I miss him dearly. I am looking forward to receiving letters from him. I also cannot wait to hear his voice.

It was my son's first major trip away from the family without other family along. He had gone to camps and on trip with another relative out of state, but nothing by himself. He had also not flown on an airplane either, so that really had me all concerned. But his father and I had also raised a very polite, conscientious young man, who is not afraid to ask questions or ask for help. So, he has done well. He has flown home several times and drove his car from his Navy school to his duty station and that was the first long distance trip he had ever drive, either by himself or with us!! So, yes, the prayers continue forth all the time.

Welcome to NAVYforMoms.com!   

Head to “Settings” on the main page right away to add a profile image (no last names visible, please) and complete your Profile. Then - and this is important! - read these Community Guidelines and this Operations Security (OPSEC) Checklist, for the safety and privacy of all our Sailors.

Then jump right in!  Browse around the site and check out the groups and the information in their Discussion Forums.

Join this group for boot camp moms, where you'll also find a group for your Pass in Review (graduation) date; and this one for PIR Reference Information.  

Get a head start during boot camp by joining groups for, and learning about, your Sailor's occupational specialty and "A" School; and later your Sailor's duty station and/or Navy ship and homeport. You can also join groups for your own state, region or home town and interests from getting ready for deployment to care package ideas!

Please say Hi when you join a group, and feel free to ask any and all questions - everyone was new once, and there is no "dumb" question. 

This site was created by the U.S. Navy just for you, and we look forward to getting to know you and your Sailor.  

Welcome to the NAVY family - we're so glad you're here!!
