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."

Events

**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.

Boot camp is almost over for my son

well my sweetheart of young man called today, we could not talk long he had more shots today and the ones he had when he first got there made him not feel well at all this go round might be a little better my son graduates on June 17th.

I was hoping that after boot camp he could come home for a while even a few days but the very next morning off he goes to goose creek South Carolina to nuke school,the next time he will be able to come home is Christmas time for maybe 5 days but I'll take it.he says nuke school is going to be hard I told him he is smart and talented he can do anything he puts his mind to.he only has 10 days left of boot camp I am so very proud of him,I love my son and miss him so much at least now when he calls I don't cry the whole time like I use to I realized he really does not need to hear me cry.
