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.

RESUMING LIVE PIR - 8/13/2021 - ONLY 2 GUESTS ALLOWED

**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.

Hi Laura,

Our sailor is on the Springfield. He's a petty officer 3rd class but his job is MM/AGanger. I think that's how you say it-he's into his 3rd year & I'm never sure if I have the terms right. lol We live in Ohio. Will be coming to Groton in September. He got married by JP last year & now wants a church wedding. I don't get on here a whole lot but will try to keep in touch. Nice to meet another Springfield Mom!

The apartments look perfect!  I found out I have another friend whose son is already in prototype school and he rents in the same complex!  He really likes it.  She emailed me a picture today that he sent her of the complex covered in a light snow.

Thanks Laura for the apartment info! I'll check it out.

Hi Laura -I saw your post on the apartments your son is living in in Ballston Spa - would you possibly be able to find out from him the name of them?  My son is finishing up power school and thinks (fingers crossed) he is going to NY.  We've been trying to do some of the legwork to help them find a place to live.  Would appreciate any help you can offer!  Thanks!
