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 as of 11/10/2022 PIR vaccination is no longer required.

**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

Hi Christa, I am sending you an email with all the ribbon order information. if you don't get the email let me know and check your spam folder. You can also send a friend request on this site. If you haven't been to my facebook page yet you can go there and check out lots of pics with prices of the scrapbook embellishments. I am going to be adding some more pics hopefully this afternoon of some new items I just designed. If you order the scrapbook items with your ribbons or before I ship you ribbons you don't have to pay extra for shipping the scrapbook items. I can also make custom items for a very reasonable price. I look forward to making the ribbons and scrapbook items for you and your family.  Thanks again,  Lora
