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 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).  Still limited to 2 guests maximum.

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 7/16/2021**




**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.

Really?? That is awesome!! I would be at the mall all the time!! Haha! They have a huge Forever 21!! I actually want to go try some of the restaurants out there too, they seem really nice. Yeah I agree with the people here that don't know how to drive, they are sooo rude and ruthless! I didn't even think to try the online classes, I always forget about those. I'm trying to go into pharmacy, either that or sports medicine, I am always changing my mind.

Same here! When we first got here I was totally lost but I know my way around where we live. I was taking classes at TCC but didn't go this semester because I wanted to try and get a job and I'm not having no luck with that and regret taking the semester off. I'm so tired of sitting at home everyday so I started to go to the gym. I have been to the mall in Hampton, it's really nice it's called the Town Center, but thats the only time I have been over there. Do you like it in Hampton?? We aren't too far from Norfolk base either but right now my husbands ship is in the yards in Portsmouth. We should get together sometime, my schedule is pretty much always empty!

Hey! Its alright so far, but nothing like Texas. I'm still getting used to living here and the cold weather, and trying to find my way around. I think it will get a lot better when the weather gets nicer though. Plus I don't really have any friends here so that sucks, makes me miss everyone back home even more. It's always pretty much just me and my husband lol. Do yall live in Norfolk??

Oh okay well thats cool :) My husband is on the Eisenhower, yours? We've been here since August and live in Virginia Beach. How do you like Norfolk? And yes it has been extremely hard to meet good people when you dont know anybody at all. I have a few friends that are navy wives that I met on facebook but thats it.
