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.

Wow you don't have to apologize to me for taking so long to answer a post!!! I am so happy your daughter passed everything and graduated from boot camp!!!  And how lucky are you to be able to see her in the live stream!!! Yes, it would make me get all teary also!!

So what is next for your girl?? Is she going off for A school?  What job will she be doing?? Let me know how she's doing!!!

I'm so sorry you won't be able to attend the PIR.  I haven't check on it in awhile but have you heard if RTC still live streams the graduation??  I know it's not the same but it will give you some idea of what it's like.  Just know that each company lines up behind their number and they are in numerical order.  Depending on where the camera is you may be able to see her company.

That is so awesome that you got to hear from your girl!!  So happy she is doing well!!  Will you be able to attend the PIR ceremony??  I realize you're pretty far away.

I am so sorry I did not get the chance to welcome you to our Moms of Daughters 2 group!!  For some reason my N4Mss notifications are no longer coming to me!! So welcome to our group, feel free to comment on the group page, and keep us posted on your daughter and where she is in her career path!!
