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.

It's not a good idea to post a pic of your Sailor every time you post. See change 4 in OPSEC and PERSEC (Making Changes to Your Profile) (clickable link). To increase PERSEC, don't include ANYONE in your profile pic.

Also make change 3 (see the words in bold) so that this page is no longer visible to EVERYONE (Anyone) with access to the web.I suggest "Just My Friends" since you have chosen to include pics on your My Page.

There may be other changes you need to make as well, so read and consider each of the changes.

Another change that I recommend that is mentioned in change 1 is to change the ZIP Code to one that is not easily associated with you or your Sailor.

Since you have a Sailor, you can change "Waiting to leave for Boot Camp" above to "Enlisted." You can make that change on the same page when you change the ZIP Code.

Hi Judy, Natasha would loved to go to officer school but her GPA's were not good enough to do so. Natasha is starting as an E3 and is scheduled to depart in October for bootcamp. Again I dont know what happend, I just know that Natasha thinks the world of him and talked about going to Florida to be with Jesse until the breakup. Now she has changed her career path and has also joined the Navy, and even though its a new scarey future, I believe it will be a great beginning to a new way of life for her. :)

Hi Judy! Natasha has talked about you often, she really thinks your a great lady. Yes its sad about Tasha and Jesse, She is really having a rough time through the break-up and as I dont understand why or what happen between them, it just breaks my heart to see her hurt. Now the Navy owns her as well and all I can hope for is a bright future for her. I also wish the same for Jesse.

Hi Judy, I hope your Thanksgiving has been a pleasant one. I will forward Jesse's email to Rachel. There is also a Facebook page for their group which Rachel will tell Jesse about if he does not know it already. She was home for the weekend, which was so wonderful. We just put her on the bus back to NYC about an hour ago. Talk to you later. Violet

Hi JudyM, that is very exciting. My son enlisted and then got into pilot program through the Seaman's the Admirals, so the Navy paid for his college. He had to go to OSC before he started college. Your son probably won't know which primary school they are sending him to until he's in OSC or at the end. Let me know what he gets, my son's primary was at Whiting Tower in Pensacola (more Milton though).

JudyM....So what part of town do you live in?

We also have a Northern CA group here. Come over to see us there to. LZ27 is on that group also. She just had her son graduate OCS also.

I friended you also.
