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 zachsmom94, I asked my son today if he knew anyone in his division named Zach from Florida, but he didn't.  Sorry, I can't help.  I so hope you get a call soon.

Lol, you are so right, who has time for Facebook any more.  We need our navy mom updates every day now.

So glad you got your form letter and a personal letter as well.  It really does provide a lot of details and I think we are all so excited about any information we can get our hands on.  Happy Day!!

Hi Zachsmom94- That's odd you didn't get a form letter.  You will have to get a password from your soon for the parking pass, it's on that letter.  Also, he said there is 94 people in his div. which is a lot of people for a division. My daughter only had about 71 in hers.  They had a chance to take the DEP test.  They did their physical test on Tuesday.   They did their financial stuff,direct deposit, life insurance, GI Bill.  Got eyes and ears checked.  My son said a lot of people needed to get glasses.  They got all their shots.  Cut their nails.  The first day processing was very slow, no sleep for about 48-50 hours.  Doing a lot of marching in hot weather.  Also, the div. is very talkative so they have to do a lot of PTing.  A lot of teary, red eyed SR on Saturday on the phones. :(  Hope this helps you a little.

Welcome to Boot Camp Moms (and loved ones). I look forward to sharing this journey with you. Be sure to check out the Pages (found under the pictures of the Members) for information on what to expect and to help you prepare for PIR. What is your SR's rating (job/specialty) going to be? There are groups for most ratings and/or "A" Schools and knowing that will help you to better plan for PIR weekend. Take care and blessings to you and yours.
