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 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).  Still limited to 2 guests maximum.

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 7/16/2021**




**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.

In all of my son's letters, he says that he is not getting any mail, but we write him every day.  Has anyone else had this experience?  We often send more than one letter a day.  Frustrating!  (We…Continue

Matthew is out of corpsman school....didn't do so well. He is waiting orders and is undesignated. He seems relieved and is hoping to get on a ship. Me...just a little apprehensive but trusting God and praying daily! Hope Will is doing well! :)

Hey. I believe my sailor has Test 2 today. He had his first one last Thursday. I noticed your sailor already has a graduation date.. They have not told Brad anything about what is next. They said they are shooting for sometime in October.

Hey, I'm in Tullahoma . Enjoy knowing he's in school and in the same place. After that there will be times that you have no idea where they are and they can't tell you. My son has been in 5yrs. He's on the Eisenhower and should be back to port soon. He has become independent so I don't hear from him too much. . So, no news is good news. Billie

Hi Stephanie, Is great to hear from more Corpsman Moms!

I am not sure if Samantha classed up yet or not, last time she sent me a text she said it was gonna be sometime next week. So I sent her a text and asked her to tell me when she is or if she did already.
