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.

A little about me:

Nervous and excited for them... but the PRIDE overrides those emotions!
I am here to support my
Stage of (Sailor’s) Navy career?

Was proud and encouraged it

NO news is sometimes hard, but no news is always good news!

Too funny. I just thought that was really ironic that he would mention my son's name as well. I Love It!

It is wonderful to know our son's are together and friends and that they are both in PUSH! Please let your son know to tell my son that we are talking on the Navy Mom's site since I don't get a chance to talk to my son directly. Hopefully, that will give them both solace knowing their Moms are friend too.

Hi, it is good to read all your post about your son and daughter. My daughter is leaving on March 19th as well for boot camp. I am as well having lots of emotions, however, very deeply proud of my baby girl.  This website is so wonderful to have for reading and getting information to prepare us for our kids future.
