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 as of 11/10/2022 PIR vaccination is no longer required.

**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).  


RTC Graduation

**UPDATE 8/25/2022 - 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!  My son is Joe.  He told me that he knows no one by their first names only last names (lol).  I'll private message you our last name. His graduation date is set for the 12/9.  It's a shame that your son was held back,  I know the amount in my son's class is now down to I think 41.  They've lost people for one reason or another.  It is a small world--I've met alot of wonderful ladies here and it seems we all have some kind I've connection other than the Navy.  I'll be in Toms River this weekend to take care of some business for my In Laws and hope to take side trip to AC (haha).  I also sent a Halloween care package to my son, but never thought about popcorn and dvds that was a great idea.  Please private message me your last name and I'll see if our sons know one another.

Thanks for letting me know that there are Moms I can talk to on this site. My son (Jesse) is not a big talker so it is nice to know a Mom that has a sailor that might get different information. Talk to you soon.

Hey, thanks.  But since they don't do them on Fri or Sat nights (overnight drill), I think what your SR meant is that they finish on the 14th.  So it would be 13th/14th.  Makes sense since their division/brother division will be the first to go. Thanks!
