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.

FOLLOW THIS LINK FOR UP TO DATE INFO:

RTC Graduation

**UPDATE 7/16/2021**

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

MASK AND SOCIAL DISTANCING IS REQUIRED. 

NO MASK, NO ENTRY

**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.

Graduated boot camp

My daughter called to say she passed battlestations  and will graduate today.   With every phone call (5 total) she sounded cheerier.   She was made athletic petty officer and was one of the top 3% in her division.  I had no expectations just wanted to see her get through it successfully.   That she did so well was icing on the cake.  Now I’m looking forward to seeing her either at A school or after school is done.   I’m not at all tech savvy but did manage to communicate to others on this…See More

Navyat34,

First of all, I am so sorry this message is so late getting to you.  I have been crazy busy with some family matters and have not been able to keep up to date on this website.  But I see you recently joined the Moms of Daughters 2 group and I want to welcome you!!!  We are a friendly, caring group of moms always willing to listen and support.  Please feel free to jump in and join our conversations on the group page!!  We like to discuss everything from our sailors to our jobs, weather, whatever.  It's also a great place if you want to yell, scream, vent, cry - - there is no judgment involved!!!  You can ask any questions you may have, talk freely about your feelings, fears or concerns, or just chat about life.  We are all in different phases of our daughters Naval careers and we are always there for each other!!!  Brag about your sailor but also tell us when you are hurting because you miss her so!!!  Looking forward to getting to know you and your sailor!!  Again, Welcome Aboard!!!!

Navyat34 - It looks like you joined the older Moms of Daughters group that is not as active. If you look below, B'sNukeMom posted the link for the more active one. Click on her blue letters below that will take you to that page. 

Sorry for any confusion that has occurred. I know you are part of the March PIR group also, be sure to share there as well. Your days are getting closer!!

Navyat34 - I see that JWMom posted a comment her for you. You figured out how to send me a friend request. You can do the same for JWMom & Gr8NvyMom as well.

Hello, my son graduates 3/18/21 from boot camp also. I spoke to him this past Saturday. Sounds good, but I think the end of Boot Camp can't come fast enough :)

I saw your friend request and I sent you a message. Check your inbox in the upper left corner of this page.

That is good that you had a phone call from your daughter and she sounded happier. 

I have my comments set to be approved before I allow them to be visible, since my page is visible to members on this site. That way, if someone is not my friend and not able to send a private message to me, and they post something more personal, I can keep it from being visible to others. 

This site is a lot easier to use on a computer, not sure if a tablet is still better than a phone. And so I only use my computer and I can't stay on the site all day or I don't get any other work accomplished. If I don't reply right away, I will do my best to reply as soon as I am able.
