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 as of 11/10/2022 PIR vaccination is no longer required.

**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).  


RTC Graduation

**UPDATE 8/25/2022 - MASK MANDATE IS LIFTED.  Vaccinations still required.

Check out Basic Medical Technician Corpsman Program Facebook PageCorpsman Moms and Corpsmen Moms and Dads. The Rating Information Card for HM can be found at; it indicates 19 weeks, but "A" School is 14 weeks after classing up.

It is strange that your SR indicated that Mail Call is only on Sunday. It is every weekday evening once a RMPO has been trained. The first Mail Call is often on the first Sunday after the recruits get to their permanent ship, but that is usually the only one that is on Sunday. See Letter Writing & Fun Stuff/Questionnaires to send to your Recruit.

Hello Precious2tb. Nice to know your daughter is in the same ship and div. The Navy Lodge has great reviews from tripAdvisor. They are generally on point! For $66 a night, you cannot go wrong.
