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 3/07/2022**

Mask Mandate has been lifted but you are still required to be vaccinated.


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.

I am so looking forward to this coming Monday. On March 8th 2010 I will be getting married to one of the greatest men alive. I love my Navy sailor and can not wait to become apart of the Navy family. We will be looking for housing in San Diego shortly after we are married. I hope to become friends with some great men and women out in San Diego as well as throughout the rest of the United States.

Congratulations to Jay on graduation that means today he is officially an ET! Today is actually the 2nd anniversary for our son in the Navy. We did attend his graduation from A school in GL and it is a mix of ETs, FCs, GMs and ICs - there were about 25 graduating that day and they did a re-enlistment of an ET during the graduation and handed him a re-enlistment check for $52,000! Things are not so good with the bonus today but hopefully we will get back to some good bonus $$ in the years ahead. Congrats on your upcoming wedding, wishing you much happiness!

Hey Jay's NavyGirl! Wanted to welcome you to the AECF group! I see your Jay has recently become a sailor so he has a lot of schooling ahead of him. Will he be an ET or FC after he graduates? My hubby was an FC and now our son is an FC with his first ship in...Hawaii! Will you be moving to GL while he is in school? This is one of the few rates that you can do that since school is so long. Within the group we have an AECF wives club that you may want to look at - lots of good sharing in our group. Welcome!
