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.

**UPDATE 11/10/22 PIR - Vaccinations no longer 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.

How exciting Robin!  I am happy for you!  Thank you for sharing this news with me!  It made me feel good too!  Content and well adjusted.....that's what I pray to hear in my son's voice too!  Glad to hear the form letter is on its way.

hi Robin - we live in Stillwater (Saratoga County) and he left from MEPS in Albany. He is also Ship 11 Div 063.  I was able to get that information from the recruiter.  I have not yet received the form letter with his PIR but sounds like it might be Feb 11.  I can't wait to hear from him!

hi Robin - my son left from Albany, NY on December 6.  His address is also Ship 11, Div. 63.  We received his box on Friday.  We have not received the graduation date yet though.  I can't wait to hear his voice.  During his last phone call to us, he mentioned we wouldn't be hearing from him for a couple of weeks.
