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.

New Sailor won't deploy for years as ship is being renovated

Posted on December 29, 2012 at 10:55pm 4 Comments

My son is a new sailor.  He was so excited to join the Navy and "see the world".  Unfortunately his ship is not going anywhere for several years as it's being renovated.  I feel so bad for him.  He is very frustrated and feels like there's nothing he can do.  He was also undesignated airman - (all that was available at the time he signed up).  He really wants to be a corpman but can't change for some reason.  I feel like he has lost his excitement.  I wish there was something he could do.

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!!!
