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 - 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:
My name is Kila, my husband Luke graduated from bootcamp on Dec. 17th, he's apart of Ship03DIV024. I'm soo very proud of him for joining, we went through a lot in order for him to join, and its paying off!
As of right now, he's coming home right after boot to spend christmas with me and his family, and I can't even begin to explain how happy I am!
He'll be in FL for ATT. I found this site, even though I'm not his Mom, lol but I needed some questions answered. :)
Update: I'm down in Pensacola, FL now with him while he's in A School. :)
I am here to support my
