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."


**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.

That is great! My CS son is Ryan, also! Talked to my son in Pensacola yesterday and he received another certification woo hoo! Ryan has been working on his dolphins, but said it has been hard since the sub is not out. They go out in June, hopefully he'll be able to do a lot of it then. Have a wonderful day :)

Don't worry about the delay, I know you are busy, I don't get on here as much either, once boot camp ended, not many people converse! My twins have finished boot camp. #1 is at King's Bay on the Alaska, he is a CS too. Since I only live an hour away, he comes home on the weekends. Son #2 is in Pensacola for his A school (IT). They joined about 3 months apart, it was a trying year to say the least, but it was worth it to see the young men they have become. Have a wonderful week. :)

Welcome to Sub Moms, "Navy Twins!"  I'm Administrator for the group, so contact me any time you need something.

We all know what you're feeling, because we've all been there - but NOT both situations at the same time!  Know that your sailor who's on cruise has NO free time, because he's working hard to get his qualification pin ("Dolphins")... if the older crew sees him sitting, they'll hassle him to start studying or get busy learning tasks.  But, email him as often as you can because he LOVES hearing from you... even if it's what the dog is doing or who you saw at the grocery store.

Let it all out here whenever you wish... we'll hand you tissues and pat your hand; promise!  Hugs, k.
