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 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).  Still limited to 2 guests maximum.

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 7/16/2021**




**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:
I married my husband on September 3, 2005. We have a beautiful daughter who will be 3 in April. My husband just left for Boot Camp on Wednesday 3/9 and I am still trying to find ways to bring my family through this difficult process together. My side of the family is all very far away, so it can be hard for me to hold a full time job, take care of the entire house, and raise my daughter don’t forget to throw in a 100+ LB dog, and of course a fish! . One of the most difficult things I have to deal with is a lack of schedule for my husband, because he is an “Unde!!” (Just learned that term, and I love it!) I don’t know where or when he will be going to school, when I might expect to hear from him, or when we might move. I know that this is the “Military Way” and we will get through this, but it would still give me some emotional security to have some answers. Thanks!!

StaceyStan - I just wondered that since your SR is the Mail and Education PO, it would seem as though he must be working with my son.  From my son's letter today, he has been given some PO position and from what I understand, I think each of the PO's work together in some fashion.  I wish I understood this better, but I just think it would be cool if our SR's are working together.  If you don't mind, when you have the opportunity, ask him if he knows my son Alec. 


Thanks.  Congratulations on all the letters you received!  That is very exciting!  I am very happy for you.
