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."


**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.

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.

Hey Allison's Mom - wanted to welcome you to the AECf group! I see your daughter is still in boot camp, are you holding up okay? I found that bc is usually harder on the families than it is on the recruits as we are just in the dark about what they are doing until those letters start rolling in. It used to be about four weeks into bc, you would find out if they are FCs or ETs but lately - it's been at the end of bootcamp. Regardless of when they find out, both ET and FC is a great rate to get into, they will receive alot of schooling on the front end, automatic advancement to E4 and lots of respect from the fleet. My hubby was an FC for over 10 years and now our son is an FC and is stationed in Hawaii. Please let us know what questions you may have and welcome to the group!
