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 3/07/2022**

Mask Mandate has been lifted but you are still required to be vaccinated.


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'm so glad you got to go! I thought the ceremony was great, oops on the dropping of the rifle. My son said that when they were rehersing, they were perfect. We didnt do much either, our daughter came with us and her son who is only 6 weeks old. The weather was not good for him. So we went to the mall and out to eat, and chilled at the hotel. It was great. He now is in Pensacola and we havent heard from but once to let us know that he is there. I did send his cell phone and I cant wait to get a phone call. Good Luck on your and your fiance' s life in the Navy and beyond.

Hey, I was wondering if you got to go to pir. We drove up, and the ceremony was great, and It was also great seeing my son. We didnt do much, but it was enough to just be with him. I hope your A-School is going good. My son is now in Pensacola getting ready for aircrew training.
