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 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).  

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 6/23/2022 - MASK MANDATE IS LIFTED -  Vaccinations still 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.

Hey my name is Jessica I was just wondering if you could help me out on a few things since it looks like you went through the same stages im prolly going to go through?
well first off my husband graduates july 23 and will be going to Pensacola for A school to be an AM. his a school is 5 weeks or so but don't know how long it will take to class up or start. I just had our first child on june 9 while he was in bootcamp he hasn't yet gotten to see him but will next week at graduation. well I don't want him to end up down there for months and not be able to see us so I was thinking about moving down there while he is in A school we only live 4 1/2 hours it wouldnt cost that much to move but I don't know if it would be worth it I don't want to move down there and only be able to see him on the weekends.. did you move down there while ur hubby was in a school and was it worth the move? did you get to see him on week days too? lol sorry about all the questions its just I can't seem to get the answers from him becauuse no one knows anything
