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 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).  Still limited to 2 guests maximum.

Specific information on this policy change will be provided in the coming days and weeks.

We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience and appreciate your support.


RTC Graduation

**UPDATE 7/16/2021**




**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.

I hope your son is adjusting better now. The weather here is a lot different than Wisconsin. Lots of rain and grey cloudy days. We actually just got some snow. Not a lot of snow, but lots of ice. I don't know where to get a good used car. Craigslist is always an option but there's a lot of junk and dishonest sellers out there. My daughter is still in GL and will probably be there until early 2012. I miss her like crazy!!!

Hi, unfortunately my son is no longer in Ship 11 Div 298. I just found out he is on medical hold for a stress frature in his heel. I had already made hotel arrangements, but I am able to cancel up to 24 hrs in advance. I was just looking forward to that extra day with him. Now I have to wait another two, three, or maybe even a month later to see him at his graduation. Best wishes to you and your sailor!

It is nice to be in touch with someone that has the same division. Our family is in Atlanta GA. We are still awaiting our first letter from our Son. Please let me know if you get any word from your Recruit.

Hi there! I am from a small town south of Houston. This is a very emotional time - I hope you have a good support system in place. Unfortunately - it is just me now. I am having some issues dealing with him being gone, but I know it is the best thing for him and that makes it easier. My son is going into the Nuke program. What about yours?
