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.

Hi soccermom - your son must have been in bootcamp just one week right behind my son.  My son was ship 11, div. 057 and had PIR on 1/28/11.


Yes, my son says power school graduation is December 2 so that means they are in the same power school class but maybe not in the same section .... Section 11.  What section is your son in?


Are you on Facebook?  If so, we have a very active Nuke Moms group over there and if you are willing to share with me your name or friend me, I'll add you to the group.  We talk about everything there as well.  Additionally, you can ready me on my real mail at - more realtime as I am always on my email either at work or home.  My name on Facebook is Penny Foster Carey and there is either a pic of a golden retriever or a pic of me with it tilted just a tad crooked!!!


Can't wait to get to know you and your son more.  My son's name is John Thomason, he is now moved over to Nautilus ... forgot his room number.  He is 6'2", age 23 and is red headed but how can you tell with so little hair.  Some call him sasquatch because he has to shave a couple of times a day to keep the beard down!!  lol


Thanks for writing and look forward to hearing from you again real soon.

Hey! Glad yall got it safe and sound! I don't know if you know or not but, here goes, our division moms have decided to wear something (hat,shirt,jacket) most of us ladies are wearing scarves the color of yellow/gold in honor of our young men and so they can see us. Give Christian heads up on this. They say when they come out marching they can not break formation by looking for us so, if they know we are wearing yellow and see some the at least  know where we are. I and a couple of others have ordered ours from L.L.Bean. It's lemon/white with a blue anchor!! It is the coolest thing. It's only $9.99 plus shipping which I ordered 2 & it totaled a liitle over 24$...if you go to that web site it is in the sale items...I think it's called a french sailor scarf? Let me know what you may already have one. Hubby's are wearing shirts, hats, jackets.....thanks.......hopefully we will be getting calls today!! No letter today:(:(:(:(
