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.

Hi Cathy, I was in the same position, out of work and had to make a big choice. Go to graduate or take her to her next duty station. Fortunately Craig's daughter graduated on the same day as my daughter. I had Craig take pic's for me as my daughter also graduated with honors. It was very hard for me not to be there. Have your daughter find out who's parents will be there. I am sure they will take pic's for you!! This is a great website everyone is so helpful and understandig I know someone will help you out. Good luck to your daughter and to you with you new job !! Ps 2 years and still no job:(

Saw your post about your daughter waiting for A school to start!  My daughter graduates next week 7/6 then goes to San Antonio, do you know when A school starts?  I wondered if she had a wait or not!  While your daughter waits.....what do they do?  Just curious.  Can't wait for the graduation to happen next week.....

Thanks Cathy, I have been trying to remember how busy they are but it's tough to not hear anything for a long time. :)  Can't wait until graduation! Good luck to your daughter!

Hi, Cathy, and welcome to Indiana Moms! I'm the administrator for the group, so if you have any questions, please ask. My son is a Nuke MM serving on the submarine ALABAMA, based out of Bangor, WA. He's been in for five years.

There's a monthly informal dinner in Avon, which meets on third Mondays. Click Nov. 21 on the Events calendar (right-hand column) for those details. From time to time, we also have regional gatherings in various parts of the state.

Jump in with any questions or comments you may have. I think you'll find we're a nice bunch of folks and always willing to lend an ear to listen or a shoulder to cry on. Hugs! k.
