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

Hi Kae'lynn. We are staying at the Navy Lodge from 7/2 to 7/6, just in case we get extra time with our SR.  Where is your SR headed to for A school?  Mine is headed to Pensacola, FL. Has your SR been able to say anything about the PIRs he's been playing for recently?  That must be so exciting to see what he will be doing for himself very soon.

Yes, you have changed 1 and 2. Take a look at the last 2 changes within OPSEC and PERSEC (Making Changes To Your Profile) and decide what you want to do about those as well. As you have your Privacy settings, ANYONE can visit this page, and since you have a pic of your SR as your profile pic, anyone (the RDC or anyone else) can connect you and your posts to him, especially since you have indicated the ship and division number. Look over the info and decide what you want to do.

The info on Challenge coins and other gift ideas is also in Gift Ideas for PIR.

Hello. Here is the Challenge coin info:

For Challenge Coins for the Ships at RTC, go to Ebay and then type in "PIRgifts" (without the quotation marks) in the search engine. The Page with all of the coins should come up.

For other gifts I would ask on the Main Wall of the PIR group and/or your Division Discussion.

As far as I know there are no official gifts that are PIR specific...only what folks think up. But many have ideas to offer!

I see you have joined Grad & Go Info. The term Grad & Go is an outdated term. By the old standards, almost all new Sailors are Grad & Go since they depart the RTC within 24 hours of PIR. BTW, you still need to make change number 2 to remove your last name from the URL above.

Hi, welcome to Boot Camp Moms (and loved ones). I look forward to sharing this journey with you. Your Username appears to contain your last name; if so, you should change that and the URL to this page. Numbers 1 and 2 at the bottom of OPSEC and PERSEC (Making Changes To Your Profile) (clickable link) will tell you how to fix both. There may be other changes you will want to make as well. Take care and blessings to you and yours.
