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.

I am so glad you were able to talk to her. Hearing her voice was "priceless"

We received our letter from the Navy with our son's address, and projected graduation date. I have wriiten him a letter and mailed it on Wednesday, and we mailed 2 cards on today. I can't wait to receive a letter from him, or talk to him.

Yes, she may have purchased a calling card at the NEX.  Send her a calling card that you pre-activate at home (activation time goes against their calling time) and send her the code if there is one.  She will need it too, right after she gets to her A school and before you can mail her the cell phone.

Thank you so much for your comment. We received "the box" yesterday evening. Today is a low day for me. I think it's the UNKNOWN, that worries me. If I could talk to him, I would feel somewhat better.
