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.

A little about me:
I'm a mother, wife, knitter, lawyer, etc. The oldest of my 3 daughters is at RTC.
I am here to support my
Stage of (Sailor’s) Navy career?
When I heard “Navy,” I...

The Navy offers opportunities that...
I needed to learn more about "Navy," not because I questioned the wisdom of a military career, but I did not know why my daughter chose the Navy, when my family is all Army and my husband's is all Air Force. I soon learned that my daughter did her homework, and that the Navy is 100% right for her.
Our Navy experience so far...
It was positive and maturing. Our relationship has grown stronger.

Hello.  I just saw this...sorry I am not able to get on all the time.  We are all in this together.  I am hoping I get a call this weekend.  I can't wait to hear what he is doing...can't wait to see him.  Planning on going to the PIR...see you there!

Hi! Thank you for the friend request! My daughter left on the 19th! Just like everyone in Div 910 we have not heard from her! I would just love to hear her voice and know she's doing ok. There is a page for division 900/800's my daughter has no musical talent and if she's doing flags you had better duck and cover! There are people who do behind the scenes work, assisting VIP's, handicap people, making sure all runs smoothly and lots of other things that sound like my little SR! Look on my page and you will see a couple of replies that really explain what our SR's are doing the links are there too...I have no idea how to send them to you as I'm not the most computer literate!
As always if my SR were here she would show me how to send them to you! I really miss not being able to talk to her..being able to ask wheres this or how do I do that or do you want to go to the grocery with me? She is my buddy and I really miss her terribly!
I will post when I finally get a phone call or a letter from her- I promise!
Have a good day and I will check in later! ⚓️ Be strong!

Thank you for the friend request.... It helps talking with other parents worrying about our kids!! It is so hard going from talking to them constantly to not hearing from them at all!! I can not wait for 117/14!!!

Good evening! So is your daughter musical and that's how she ended up in the 910 division?

I see you have joined your PIR group; I also invite you to join Boot Camp Moms (and loved ones) and to check out the Pages (found under the pictures of the Members) there.  The Page, 800 and 900 Divisions, will be of interest to you since you have a recruit in a performing division. I believe that Division 910 is Sticks/Flags. You may want to check out Mom’s of Navy Daughters, Mom's of Daughters 2, and Women in the Navy. Take care and blessings to you and yours.

I see you have joined NUKE moms; you may also want to check out Nuke School Charleston and Nuke A School FAQ. The Rating Information Card for NF can be found at Your Sailor will most likely fly out to "A" School the day after PIR. See PIR Day and Liberty During PIR Weekend to help you know how to plan your weekend.
