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.

hi--thank you, thank you for your prayers for our son.  i still don't know if he has passed this yet, but when he called last sunday, he said they were going to send him to a "shrink" to talk about the floating thing.  wow.. i am glad i am not there.  i would be living at the "shrink's" office! 

i do not take lightly when someone says they are praying or lifting prayers or however they want to say it.  i have said this before and i will say it again:  if our son makes it through boot camp and A school, it will be by the Hand of our living God, because he had so many strikes against him.

thankful for your friendship--

Thank you so much for the kind words!  I love helping when I can along with the other veteran moms.  And it won't be long before you all will be veterans and may want to jump onto the PIR groups every now and then to help them through!

Thanks again!  I am the one who feels truly blessed to be able to do this.
