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 - 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.

Hello,

Just thought I'd let you know that you need to change your username. Last names of Recruits/Sailors are not allowed on N4M's as per the Community Guidelines The Navy For Moms Site Admin posts it in her welcoming comment but many miss it, no worries!). Read them Here:

Navy For Moms (N4M) Community Guidelines (clickable link)

It also has guidelines for OPSEC...links and such for posts and videos on it that are good to read. OPSEC is now a "way of life" for your recruit/future Sailor.

Please also go back to Boot Camp moms and ermove a post that you have on their with your recruits full name. I think it was yesterday. :-) Your username will automatically change on any old posts you have but the post there has the info in the body of it.

Thank you and if you ever need any help, just holler!

Welcome to NavyForMoms.com!!

I hope you get all the information here you are looking for.  Please stop by the Survival Guide for New Moms for some of the info to start with.  
If you have a new Recruit and need phone cards for them please check out Calls for Recruits.org and get them for FREE.  I feel that the Family, Loved Ones, nor the Men and Women of our Armed Forces should have to pay for phone calls from Boot Camp.  The link above will take you to the website to send the email for the FREE phone cards if you need them.  Please spread the word if you know of anyone who can use this great service!!!
