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).  


RTC Graduation

Thanks so much for the information. I am telling you my son says he misses us like crazy and he is fine then starts asking me questions and telling me to write more. LOL I even sent those questionaires thinking I would be able to get some information out of him. I think he probably figures I don't want to know the specifics although I ask in everyone of my letters. :) So you wonderful for sharing that with me. Thanks so much!

Makes it much nicer to know someone might be following him into the Nuke program. I am sure you are just as proud as I am. He will need lots of encouragement I am sure. We were based in Charleston for 3 years (before the base closed) and I have friends there. I am actually looking forward to visiting him. Will you be attending the PIR meet & greet?

It was a really hard first week! I'm glad I got semi active on this site though, I found so many people who have been through exactly what I'm going through and people who are dealing with it right now.

but I'm keeping as busy as possible this season. Hopefully we will survive together, and meet up in goose creek!!

I got so many answers to all sorts of questions. Questions I didn't even know I had!
