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).  

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 6/23/2022 - MASK MANDATE IS LIFTED -  Vaccinations still 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.

Hey there,

My son Graduated BC 12/17 I can tell you what I sent him . They don't have much space, and you really can't send them ''stuff''. If you didn't send a phone card with  her to BC do that and go ahead and activate it before you send it. I sent a photo album a very thin one from Walmart with like 14 photos in it. Pics of very important things or people he would love to look at during BC. Go ahead and write her and I say WRITE her . They really need the letters. I wrote every other day. I typed a lot of letters so it could be long and not take  up much space. Send funny cards not music ones though, they tend to get flack for those cards. I also cut newspaper clippings of  his favorited teams or things that he liked. This site will be great for you as you take this journey with your Daughter. Stay busy and it will be time to go to her Graduation before you know it. It is AMAZING you will love it. I was SOOO PROUD when they opened the big doors up and was crying before I saw my Son. Ask her when they start practicing for graduation where she is in the line up so you can see her when she comes in. Take a lint roller with you , their uniform catches lint like crazy. Best of luck to you and messege me if I can help you.Many Blessings to you and your Sailor.
