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.

Profile Information

A little about me:
I am a single mother of two incredible boys. I have raised them by myself since they were 7 & 11. My boys always came first. Their education, sports and family time was very important to me. They are my world and I wanted to make sure they were never deprived. I have a wonderful job that I've been employed with for 18 years. I've been very fortunate to buy my own home. My 23 year old son joined the Navy in June 2012. He is now a Submarine Sonar Technician on the USS Nebraska SSBN. My 19 year old son is currently in BC following his brothers footsteps. He went in as a reserve HM Fleet Marine Force. I couldn't be prouder of these two boyz of mine.
I am here to support my
Stage of (Sailor’s) Navy career?
When I heard “Navy,” I...
Was concerned or afraid
Our Navy experience so far...
It was positive and maturing. Our relationship has grown stronger.

Welcome to Boot Camp Moms (and loved ones). I look forward to sharing this journey with you. Be sure to check out the Pages (found under the pictures of the Members) for information on what to expect and to help you prepare for PIR. What is your SR's rating (job/specialty) going to be? There are groups for most ratings and/or "A" Schools and knowing that will help you to better plan for PIR weekend. Take care and blessings to you and yours.

Our sons' stories are so similiar...except I'm a widow...hubby died when my sons were 15/17  :-(.  And my son went to college for about the same length of time yours did, and got his A.S. degree.  So now he is working on his Bachelors, courtesy of the GI Bill (which I'm sure your son will do too!).  My son was honorably discharged in March of this year--started school June 1st.  He is doing school full-time online through Thomas Edison State College (one of the schools that caters to the military) and will have his Bachelors, he hopes in 5 semesters!  Looking for a job too now, but no luck so far (he is in TX with his fiance).

Wishing your son the very best in his time in the Navy!  Prayers for us single moms and all that we do!  We are WOMEN, hear us ROAR!  :-)  Blessings....
