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."


**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.

A little about me:
When my daughter joined the Navy I started making ribbons as a hobby and a way to show how proud I am of her. After being on this site for some time, I really wanted to share my ribbons with the proud Navy families that come together on here!

I hand make each ribbon with fine fabrics and individualize each one. Our family loves to wear them because it's a simple and loving way to show how proud you are of your sailor.

Ribbons are $10--which includes shipping. You can pay by check, money orders or paypal.

Send me a friend request and I'll send you more details :) Also, if you need your ribbons for a group just let me know ahead of time so I can plan accordingly when I make them. Thanks!

P.S This is non-profit. The money is only used for materials needed and shipping costs.
I am here to support my
