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.

New random pics on Navy RTC facebook page.   Any of Daniel?   None of Tyler

Have you seen the random pictures on Navy RTC?    I think I saw Tyler

Got the box.   Did you?   Two of my N4M friends have SRs in Ship 14 DIV 237  One left May 19 and the other May 20.   Both got form letters today   Their graduation date is July 17

He will now.   On the RTC site they show a large room with MANY pay phones.   They will get a phone card but I sent one with Tyler.   Fingers crossed I'm hoping he will call.   

At 6:48pm on May 24, 2015, deputydawgofduke said…

Oh No!    Well he was going to mail it back anyway but maybe an honest person will turn it in.  They have to use a pay phone to call home.   We searched Winston all over to find a pay phone.   Tyler has never used one.   So he went without practice.  I figured he wouldn't be the only person in BC that had never used a pay phone.   Maybe we'll get the box Tuesday.

Happy Memorial Day weekend.   Just thinking about you and our men at GL.   I have been checking Facebook  to see if they post any pictures.   Fingers crossed.    Have a great week.  Can't wait to get the box and form letter.
