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 as of 11/10/2022 PIR vaccination is no longer required.

**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).  


RTC Graduation

**UPDATE 8/25/2022 - MASK MANDATE IS LIFTED.  Vaccinations still required.

**UPDATE 11/10/22 PIR - Vaccinations no longer 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.

Angie is at Great Lakes for A & C school.  Sorry we didn't cross paths somehow at graduation.  We had a great time, though, and all 7 of us were able to get right in.  We spent Sat. & Sun. with Angie, mostly hanging out at the motel so she could take off her uniform :)  My daughter and I plan to go for a visit next month.  Pensacola should be a fun place.  Does Brittny like it there?  Angie is looking forward to more liberty, getting off base some, and wearing civilian clothes. :)

Nice pics.  I was ill and not able to attend the swearing in but the recruiter emailed pics to me.  I think my daughter, Angela, is your daughter's rackmate.  She told me Brittny.  She is so glad to have someone she can talk to, also.  Perhaps we will meet each other at PIR.  Nice to meet you.  My name is Marcia.

Not sure what a push division but if it gets your daughter done faster that is a good thing in my book. I have my reservations at the Navy Lodge already. He is not the only one counting the days down until his PIR.

My son left the day before your daughter. We are from Garland. I am retired Navy. Texas has some wonderful benefits for their Vets. Maybe they will graduate at the same time. If you have any questions let me know. Virginia
