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."

Events

**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.

Moving Off Base

My sailor will be moving off base. The place is about 15 minutes from base. Does anyone have any tips on where to buy used furniture? And how to physically move items from base to the new place (like moving companies, etc.)? I want to help him out but I have no clue where to start! See More

There may be other changes you need to make as well, so read and consider each of the changes.

Hi there! So my son was in a similar situation. I believe their ticket is to their duty station, not home. Either way when my son  contacted whoever handles the tickets, they told him he could change it but he would have to pay the difference. The problem with that is, it’s always last minute & you never know when they will tell you. I’m not sure where you all live & where his next duty station is. But for us, our son lost out on the ticket and we stuffed him the car with us for a 15 hour drive back home. Then we made the arrangements to get him to his duty station at the appropriate time! I hope my rambling helps in some way! Good luck!

Master at Arms is a rating very dear to my heart since my Sailor was an MA. Join San Antonio MA's; the discussion, Break down week by week, will let you know what happens at NTTC Lackland (San Antonio). You will also want to join MAA Moms.

The Rating Information Card for MA can be found at https://www.cool.navy.mil/usn/enlisted/rating_info_cards/ma.pdf; it indicates 9 weeks, but "A" School is 7 weeks after classing up.

Join Japan Mom's.

Welcome to NAVYforMoms.com!   

Head to “Settings” on the main page right away to add a profile image (no last names visible, please) and complete your Profile. Then - and this is important! - read these Community Guidelines and this Operations Security (OPSEC) Checklist, for the safety and privacy of all our Sailors.

Then jump right in!  Browse around the site and check out the groups and the information in their Discussion Forums.

Join this group for boot camp moms, where you'll also find a group for your Pass in Review (graduation) date; and this one for PIR Reference Information.  

Get a head start during boot camp by joining groups for, and learning about, your Sailor's occupational specialty and "A" School; and later your Sailor's duty station and/or Navy ship and homeport. You can also join groups for your own state, region or home town and interests from getting ready for deployment to care package ideas!

Please say Hi when you join a group, and feel free to ask any and all questions - everyone was new once, and there is no "dumb" question. 

This site was created by the U.S. Navy just for you, and we look forward to getting to know you and your Sailor.  

Welcome to the NAVY family - we're so glad you're here!!
