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.

I wasn't too surprised that my daughter joined the Navy, she had a recruiter trying to get her to join the army when she was in college.  I'm so glad we had her wait.  I'd much rather worry about her on a ship or base than being the boots on the ground.  She will be a HT - Hull Tech...engineering and welding, which she is very excited to do.

We are staying at the Sleep Inn, really close to base.  Our oldest daughter will be flying in....dad and I prefer driving... have not decided yet on that.

It sounds like our daughters are on the same page.....My daughter also has been frustrated with girls in their div talking when they are not supposed to, like during inspection.  She is 23, and very serious about following all rules and procedures.  I'll bet she loved it when your daughter did that!  I have received 2 phone calls so far, on the 12th and the 19th.  No real letters yet, but they were only allowed to start writing home on the 20th.  My daughter is on ship staff, Head PO.....sounds good huh?  well.....that puts her in charge of keeping the "heads" in order.  haha .... guess every job needs doing.  

I'm very happy to meet you!

Have a lovely day!
