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 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.


RTC Graduation

**UPDATE 7/16/2021**




**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.

Hi!  Yes, my oldest son is in the Marines, currently stationed in Okinawa.  I always knew he would serve in the military, but it was a real surprise when my SR (my youngest son) said he was going to join the Navy.  Totally caught me off guard, but I was so proud and so happy for him!  My SR seems to be doing great, his letters all sound so positive, and I am SO READY TO SEE HIM ON 9/23!!!  So you have 1 Marine and 1 Navy?

Thank you for adding me as a friend! You are my first official friend here! :) I see you are from Norco. We (my husband, children, & myself moved here (MT) from Orange County.

I just received my first "real" letter from my daughter today (not including the form letter 2 weeks ago). It was such a joy to read, that I have read it 3 times already! Have you received a letter yet? I do hope you have.

Have a great evening!

Hi and thank you for the friend request (neighbor). My son is in Div. 945. I have a lot of questions regarding the tickets for graduation. Do you know anything about it? I heard we only get 4 tickets (one per person) but then when my son was leaving his Chief told us that any number of people can attend? I'm so confused and it's getting to be a battle on my side because his father and I are divorced and I don't want my son to worry about this.

I still haven't heard from my son. I am starting to worry about him. No letter or call. He just graduated from high school in June, and has never been out on his own. He has been so excited about boing in Navy. I just hope he is okay. I live in Ca. too.

Hi Momof3.  I noticed that your daughter arrived in GL on 7/27 and that you are from Norco, CA.  Did your daughter leave from the San Diego MEPS?  If so, she may have been on the flight with my son, Evan!

Hi Momof3.  I really hope that his PIR is 9/16.  I will just hope until i receive form letter from my son.  But that would be great, see him sooner that I was told.
