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."


**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.

Profile Information

A little about me:
I was in the U.S.NAVY for ten years. Tiffany, my daughter was born at NAVAL HOSPITAL CAMP PENDLETON, CA. Her father, my husband, is former USMC. I joined to get my college education paid deal I ever made. Yes, I'd do it all over again in a heartbeat. Tiffany has joined the world's greatest navy...the U.S.NAVY. I now have the honor of being a proud U.S.NAVY MOM.
I am here to support my
Stage of (Sailor’s) Navy career?
When I heard “Navy,” I...
Was proud and encouraged it
The Navy offers opportunities that...
HONOR, COURAGE, COMMITMENT. I have one regret that, I did'nt do it sooner, & did'nt stay longer. I highly recommend the U.S.NAVY for the experience of a life time...& the adventure waiting to be lived. I am pro U.S.NAVY and support the military service experience for our children as a bridge from high school to reality. It opens the world up & all the possibilities that are ahead. I am a Desert Storm Vet. My Navy experience was life enhancing.
Our Navy experience so far...
It was positive and maturing. Our relationship has grown stronger.

Trixy, Here is some info to make your decision/plans about going to The Butchart Gardens a little easier to make.
The Butchart Gardens, Box 4010, Victoria BC, V8X 3X4, Canada
Phone 250-652-4422 Fax 250-652-3883 We drove our car onto the Ferry at Anacordis, WA, then we had our car to drive around on Vancouver Island. There are multiple things to do on the Island and also in Victoria BC. I wanted to take the canoe ride with the local tribe out to where the whales are, though I thought it a bit scarey, they say it is quite safe. There are seasonal rates at The Butchart Gardens and sometimes discounts if you tell them in advance you are going to be visiting. Blessings,

Hey Trixy! Hope all is well with you and Tiffany! Haven't been on here for awhile, so just wanted to catch up. I guess I have been busy living life. So much has changed since they were in bootcamp.

Hey trixy! I hope all is going good for you. Just wondering how your Tiffany is doing. My husband is doing great. He is at GL. So I got to drop his cell off to him last night. So the kids and I got to see him for a few minutes! He called me at 7:55 and said can you be here by 9? I said heck yeah and hauled ass to GL. Made it just in time. We got 5 minutes w/ him, but it was well worth it!
