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 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).  

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 6/23/2022 - MASK MANDATE IS LIFTED -  Vaccinations still 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.

Hey! Thanks so much for posting the MeetNGreet in the Events section. Can I ask a favor? That is the MeetNGreet for the entire PIR division (including families not involved with N4Moms). It is put on each week by the Ramada. So can you change the info in the event post to reflect PIR 1/14/11 instead of just for your division? It might be confusing to some ladies not in your division to think they aren't included. Thanks!

Hi Bubba's Mom. Glad to have you join NH moms. It is a terrific group of ladies and very helpful and very encouraging. My son graduated bc on 10/29/10. He just found out that he will be able to finish his 'A' school in time to be home for Christmas!! Yay. He is presently in Meridian, MS for his A school. Feel free to post any questions. We would love to hear from you.
