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 8/25/2022 - 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.

Hey i noticed a comment that you left on a friends page. it said you where still in high school when you met your husband. i guess my question is when did you get married lol, how long did you last in the girlfriend stage and did he go into the navy while you were in high school? Im a senior in college a semester away from graduation, we may take the marriage plunge lol but a lot of our friends are saying its to early. i dont think they realize that i mean nothing to the navy and we want to eventually be together.

Thanks for the friend request! My son seems to be doing fine, maybe a little homesick. He was made RCPO & even though he said he was out of his comfort zone @ his first he sounds more confident about it now. Glad to hear your son is doing better!! I am so proud of all of our recruits & I can't wait to see them all graduate on the 17th! I think it's going to be awesome.
