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."


**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.

No, don't apologize for helping. Welcome.

Please help your friends below with PERSEC and delete their comments in which they post their email addresses. Thanks.

It's not a good idea to post a pic of your Sailor every time you post. See change 4 at the bottom of OPSEC and PERSEC (Making Changes to Your Profile) (clickable link). Also make change 3 while you are there. There may be other changes you need to make as well, so read and consider each of the changes. Another change that I recommend that is mentioned in change 1 is to change the ZIP code to one that is not easily associated with your Sailor.

What is your Sailor's rating (job/specialty) and/or where is he stationed (what vessel, if one)? There may be other groups I can direct you to.

Welcome to Boot Camp Moms (and loved ones). Do you have a second recruit or have you come back to share your experience. Either way, welcome. Take care and blessings to you and yours.

Hello Trevors Mom,
Yes, I am on Facebook. My email is
I am sorry that I am just now responding. I have not logged in to this site since the first part of the year. I would love to join the Facebook group. Also, was wondering if you and other Moms get together from time to time? Looking forward to hearing you.

I got a call this morning.  !!!! totally excited, thankful and blessed.  he sounded good, tired but good.  I denoted a new level of thinking in his voice, more clear and concise.. I was able to merge the calls and got his dad on the line, so we both spoke with him.  That was good.

He kept commenting on how much more difficult the 800 division was, but that he was confident he would push through. So proud of him. thought I would share, and again I am thankful for you.

My phone number is 210-559-1539. The 20th is good for me. What kind of restaurant would you like to try? There are several around the airport and off of 410/I10 area.

Our next lunch date is march 16. Most moms can't make it for dinner. I can meet you if you like? I will also let the others know to see if anyone else can make it.
