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 6/23/2022 - 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.

Kimberly, just wanted to tell you that I will be praying for your son and especially for you. I understand how very difficult it is dealing with anxiety when there is nothing you can really do to control the situation or end it. Take care, Navy sister. We are all here for you.

Well there are 345 Sailors on the Cruiser. What is your private email address and I can send you a copy of the paper i about the Sailors. I also have talk to the Starbucks in Greenville about donating. I still need to go to the ones in McKinney and Allen to see if they can also donate coffee.

My mom is home from the hospital now. And I ended up getting sick and was not able to go. We are still trying to get donations. I am suppose to find out from Sam's Club and Costco at the end of the month if they are going to help.

We are @ 35 miles from the Sam's Club in Mckinney. It would be great if you could come. The kids are doing a great job. The HS students were over at the Elementary School helping them make cards and decorating the bags.

We lived behind the I guess old high school. It was funny - we could hear the band practicing but Jaimee (daughter) still rode the bus! Where did they build the new HS?

Also, if your son is GradNGo, he most likely is leaving from the base on the bus with others around 2 a.m on Sat. You can meet up with him at the airport if you like (make sure you know which airport!). There, you can stay and visit with him and give him his cell/laptop, etc. He cannot have any of that on RTC. The USO is wonderful out there to the sailors and families and it will be a great time for you. Unless he is on a charter plane....then parents are not able to see the sailors.
