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.

Hoping you have a great day that will be just what you want it to be.

We are not doing anything special, I want to save for our trip to S. C. in July. I also don't need a day to say that I am special. I have lots of mom days with my family. I do hope you are doing well! I think of you often and keep you in my prayers!!

Oh, I forgot..................our friend whose son has been in BC five weeks today called and told her that we met. She graduated from the high school that you didm actually her brother was in the class you were. I will have to get her maiden name and her brother's name to see if you remember him. She graduated in "82, so you may not know her unless you have younger siblings. As the saying goes, "it is a small world."

Hi Loretta!!! We have had a tough time to be honest. We did really well until it was time for Kyle to get on the bus and he turned to me and was crying. It broke my heart and we all lost it then. We got home and it was bad for us and we went to the girls vollyeball games just to get out of the house. Today has been tough, hubby had a hard day as well as our daughter. Kyle's girlfriend went to the airport to get some more time with him, EMU is about 20 minutes away and she was heading back to school. It worked out well for them to have more time if only a short time. She and I have cried on the phone today and have been testing too. A bit better tonight though. Counting down to graduation day!!
