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.

Hi Little Turtle...I am very nervous about using names here after the discussions I saw earlier today.  For now, just call my son, Nuke:)  I'm more afraid that I will slip up than anyone else.  I was surprised when my son knew so much about our conversations here.  I don't know what I would have done these past weeks without all of you.   

I can't wait to hear more about your son.  I hope we can meet in person at PIR.  Let's keep in touch:)

I totally agree with Bunker...  That Survival Guide is a blessing....

Also join this group, they are awesome....

If you haven't you should look at all the material in the survival guide. It'll help you - really. The more you know, the better. Your son will be well taken care of. In no time, it will be PIR, then deployment and many leaves to come home to see you. My son has been in for 5 years. Seems like yesterday. You promise to read everything, now, OK?
