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.

Lol, yeah I haven't really made many friends yet, but I had morning sickness for the first 3 months that I was here so I didn't really try too much. We live in Murphy Canyon. How about you?

seen your post.. CONGRATS on getting the condo :)

you will love california.. i did. (born and raised)

I know what you mean... We have a dog so the housing issue seems to be magnified! I was looking at the website for SD and there are only 2 types of base housing available for us because of our pet. Out of those 2 houses there is a 6 month-1 year waiting period. I cannot get on a waiting list for the houses until we have his hard copy orders... SO frustrating!!!
At 5:51pm on September 18, 2010, Sam said…
We got his orders verbally as well. So I hope that they don't change it up too much! Then again I kind of want to stay here in Hawaii where my life... I just wish that they could make it easier to plan. For them wanting us to be so prepared they sure do not always make it easy.
