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 as of 11/10/2022 PIR vaccination is no longer required.

**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).  


RTC Graduation

**UPDATE 8/25/2022 - MASK MANDATE IS LIFTED.  Vaccinations still required.

**UPDATE 11/10/22 PIR - Vaccinations no longer 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.

Thank you for sharing, hope your daughter is doing alright. As for My daughter she had a stressful day before deployment, lost her cap in the water, split her lip and had problems with her knee. I have been communiating with her through e-mail and she sounds great. Now I am waiting for my phone call, which should be coming soon according to her :). will let you know if I hear something new. God bless and have a Happy Easter

reply from Beth(haley's mom) My daughter is also grad and go on ship 7, di v 44.For her it means that after graduation she gets on a bus and goes to base and moves her stuff down the street to the other base. After the 5-6 hours this takes she will be ours, possibly fir the entire weekend. depending on what her command allows. Her A School is at Great Lakes. Hope this is helpful. Beth
