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."

Events

**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.

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.

Was proud and encouraged it

He's off

My son just left this morning to Newport RI OCS. Is it a joyful day, yes, but with tears. My vacation this years will be going east to attend his graduation. Seems like a long way off, but I know it will be here before long.

Hi LZ27! My name is Andrea and my husband is in Newport class 20-10!
When does your son graduate? I know you mentioned he is class 19-10 so I was wondering if they have the same graduation? My husband graduates early September!

I understand - oh and I did not learn overnight - one sailor in since 2001 other 4 years later - both different - have the ex issues at times too although I seem to get regular (like weekly calls or messages..) I am sure you are very proud and maybe when you feel that way you should write him.. on real paper - to me that is therapy - especially when they are deployed.. they dont need a computer to read it and well positive statements on paper make positive statements in my head.. Be well , take care and I hope to see you again soon
