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 8/25/2022 - 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.

A little about me:
I'm a single mother of 4 daughters. My sailor is daughter #2. When the first child moved out, I still got to see her and could talk to her whenever I wanted. I was certainly not prepared for the iron curtain that came down when #2 went to boot camp. Very excited for her to have this adventure and think it will be a wonderful thing for this child...but I'm not taking it as graceful as I thought I would :-) I'm sure this is just an adjustment and that I will acclimate quickly.
I am here to support my
Stage of (Sailor’s) Navy career?
When I heard “Navy,” I...
Was proud and encouraged it

I have made some matching fleese scarfs for the ladies in div 47 & 48. I would like to mail you one and then we can wear them to Sarges meet and greet and PIR to show unity for our divisions. Please send me back your last name and address and I will mail it to you tomorrow.

Great News, I got a letter today.  It is really odd, there is no postmark. Maybe that created a delay.


He is doing great. He said on Thanksgiving that he had prime rib, ham, stuffing, corn & powerade.  He said the days are long and that from Nov 21 to Dec 1 had been phold and pdays for processing. 


He said he had received letters from me and that he loved them. I was glad to hear that he is getting mail.


He also said he was made section leader. He said his division is 90 and there are 6 sections leads and that he is one of them responsible for 13 recruits. 


He said days are long but he is doing great.


This letter was written on Dec 2nd, which he said he just finished day 1 of week 1. He said he was in phold and pdays from Nov  21-Dec 1st.
