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 6/23/2022 - MASK MANDATE IS LIFTED -  Vaccinations still required


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 live in bayview towers, but if you look them up, you'll get the sales office. i'm gonna leave you a link to lease. i just moved here about 3 weeks ago. luckily my husband was out here in a school and got everything situated once i found a place we liked.

that's one that my landlord is renting.

there's one big problem and that is that it doesnt have a legit fridge. jsut a mini fridge. but there's a grocery store across the parking lot that sells meat real cheap. and its good.

Sam, i live about 5 minutes from base in a condo complex. its not in an absolutely horrible neighborhood, and its really close to everything. the rent ranges here from 1095 to 1150, and the only utilities you pay are cable/internet and electricity. there's a lot of other navy families. it has a pool, jacuzzi, laundry, mailroom, and fitness center. how big is your dog? i'm not sure about the rules on pets. its completely furnished 1 bedroom.

or check out ball park place apartments. about 20 minutes from base, if that. next to public transportation. right next to petco park downtown. extremely cheap rent. i think for unfurnished it was 895 a month. you only had to pay electricity, cable/internet also. furnished was only about 100 more.
