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.

Congrats to you and your new Sailor!

Thanks for the info. Chris doesn't want to be delayed either. So tomorrow is the BIG day. I hope the division has become a tight team so they will work well together and help each other accomplish their mission. From the videos I 've seen it is quite an ordeal and no sleep or food till they are done. I also read somewhere if they are ordered to Battle Stations21 they are most likely gonna make it. We are getting excited for Wed to fly up there to see him. We won't be able to make it to the M&G because we will be meeting up with Chris's wife and 3 kids who are coming from Lincoln, NE by train.

Our last name is England. Chris is the oldest at 29. His bunkmate is married with a child. Chris's wife just told me yesterday she got a hort note from him saying he's behind because they have him taking physical therapy for back pain and he has had bronchitis. Said he missed his weapons training. But no phone call yet saying PIR is delayed. I hope it isn't because I will have to pay to change my flight tix. We are staying only till Sat morning because my husband has to work.

Good Morning - How are you doing? Pete went out of San Antonio on May 10th his recruiter is in Austin where he was going to school at UT. The only communication that we have recd has been the form letter. I wish we would get a call, but I understand those do not come frequently. Are you planning on going to graduation? At this time we are driving because I know that PIR date can change. Please keep in touch and I am sorry about being late in responding.
