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 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).  Still limited to 2 guests maximum.

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 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.

NavyJane, Welcome aboard N4Ms neighbor. I am in OR. You will find the members very supportive & lots of info here. I hope you enjoy N4Ms. I sure wish I had known about this website when my son joined the Navy 4 years ago. If you haven't joined any groups yet, you might want to click on groups, then in the search box type in things like your state initials, or your sailor's bc location or bc. I would type in OR, HI, submariner for instance. There is a group called Washington-Oregon or something like that.. You will find those close to you and going through the same things you are or will be. And doing the settings on your profile is important. I ended up with 163 emails just from N4Ms one day. I closed off all mail from N4Ms then went to each group and clicked on do not follow, then make my settings more private. I am here if I can be a support. No one told me my son would not get my letters until the end of bc. He was overwhelmed to get them all at once. All these members are great. But be careful, remember OpSec.. Make sure you know them. Did you see Molly's Adopt a Sailor? I belong to Soldiers' Angels and we support all branches but don't seem to get many Navy so I am glad she is starting. Have you signed up for on Internet for daily news and pics? That is how I learned my son had deployed, several days after he left. JessicaB-Sailor Mom always has good ideas and Irene has been around awhile and BunkerQUEENBee is quite knowledgeable. Take care. Blessings,
