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 got a call at 4:00am from my son they were on their way to Texas! He said wake up Mom and I said sorry it's 4:00 am. Warning to all Moms, don't say that because then he said I better let you go. Darn I didn't think fast enough but when we talk again I will let him know he can call me at anytime, anyplace and anywhere. Hope to hear more soon!

When I saw teacher mom I thought darn, there is no spell check on this . That makes sense that your title goes with your job.My daughter graduates with her Masters in Middle School Math and English on friday. She loves middle schoolers and her hubby is a youth Pastor. Your Son looks so happy and he must of found some great friends in the Navy. My Son is so happy and looking forward to school. I'm trying to find out where exactly he will be and when I can bring him his phone and other things. Do you know anything more? We are in ship 12 and division 184.
