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.

Ok  it is less than a month away. Thought I was prepared for him leaving. Been through this with one ( marines) already, but did not think I would be getting emotional everytime I think about it.

Make at least change 3 at the bottom of OPSEC and PERSEC (Making Changes to Your Profile) (clickable link). There may be other changes you need to make as well, so read and consider each of the changes.

There is no longer a group for the USS San Diego, but you may find others on that vessel in Amphibious (Gator Navy), San Diego Moms or Sailors in San Diego, San Diego Moms/SOs, and/or Sailors Stationed in California. Check out for views of the Bay.

I did get your response.  I called Brewster yesterday for Jarrett's address. Letters in the mail now! 

Jarrett and Colton have some aquaintances in commom - not surprise but kind of neat.

Jarrett is in Ship 09, Div. 021.  What about Colton?  Jarrett said when they were at the airport he and your son gave the other Navy recruit a hard time (all in fun!).  Called him "grandpa" because he's 31.  I got a chuckle out of that.


Hey, do you have any idea when their PIR is? I heard it will NOT be 12/23 which is what I calculated.  Not only that, we spend $1,300 on plane tickets.  Crap!  I suppose I will wait on that form letter for exact date. 

When we spoke the other day at the the recruiters office, I thought you looked familiar.  Are you from Rogers?  Feel free to txt me - 787-3897

Take care and praying for your kid and your family.

So true!  I spent a lot of time in his room yesterday.  He did text me a little but here I thought he was in route to Chicago and he's playing x-box at a hotel.  Final oath today then flying out...


Hey, when do you think their graduation will be?  12/16 or 12/23?
