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 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.


RTC Graduation

**UPDATE 7/16/2021**




**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 lady!  Hope you're doing well.  How is your son doing?  Is he still in Groton?  What a yucky winter we've had here in New England.  We will be taking a trip down there in the near future.  If so, it would be great to meet him and have him give my daughter some pointers on A school survival.  She wants desperately to get into C school as a rad tech or an ultra sound tech.  Hope you're doing well.  God bless you and your family.  Laura

I work for an orthopedic surgeon.  My xray technician received his training in the Army at Fort Sam, and  his wife is an ultrasound tech at our local hospital; she also got her training at Fort Sam (that's where they met).  My daughter eventually wants to work in some capacity in oncology, a field in which there is a great need for compassionate technicians.  Thanks for the advice!  My son, on the other hand, wants to go Greenside and work as a field medic with the Marines.  He leaves for boot camp the first week of May.  She is waiting for the Corpsman spot to open...there are currently none open for women.  Her recruiter assures her something will come up soon.  Thanks for your time!  God Bless you and your family.

Hello.  I saw your post on the HM page. Both my son and daughter are enlisted and waiting to leave for BC; both are going to be Corpsmen.  My daughter hopes to become a radiation tech as well.  Any pointers? hahahaha.   God Bless.  Laura
