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 - 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.

I called my son's recruiter.  He looked it up - said that on (rare) occassion it is different from the form letter we get.  As of yet, we received my son's "box" but no letter.  But then again he just left one week ago today.  His report to GL was last Tuesday.

 

I called my son's recruiter again this morning (after the official Navy site at http://www.bootcamp.navy.mil/upcoming_grads.asp) to confirm his address and division as it was not included in the 12/16/11 PIR Ceremony.  He confirmed address and div. did not change from last week and that I should be getting that form letter any day.  He has been very helpful.

 

Still Amazed by His Grace -
