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

**UPDATE 8/25/2022 - MASK MANDATE IS LIFTED.  Vaccinations still required.

**UPDATE 11/10/22 PIR - Vaccinations no longer 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 baby-girl, Ran into ma today at the park.  She said ur staying busy.  Good for u!!! It really helps.  Idol time is the worse.  I think my worse week was when Paul was at UW.  I ssoooo wish Andy was done now too.  I invited Brian to bring friends of his that didnt have family there to come off base with us.  "Hell NO" he says.  He wants away from them for away and just wants ma time.  I cried....  I probley cry from the moment I wake up Thursday until a week after I get back.  At least he can call when he wants though after this.  Luv ya kid.... call when-ever u need.... mar

I"m so very happy for you. WOOOO HOOO!!! What a awesome day when you get that! Since you got his form letter and his address go ahead and mail him. If you don't recieve mail from him right away please don't get upset. Sometimes it takes awhile. My daughter's letter did. Eventually they will all catch up. Have a wonderful day! So very happy for you once again. Hugs

Very nice to meet you. Check with your son's recruiter. We got our son's mailing address already. His recruiter posted it on his facebook page for us. They can pull it up somehow. I was surprised it happened so quick. He in Ship 3 Div 334. Let me know if they are in the same division. Have a good night. Hugs
