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."

Events

**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.

Today has been my best day ever... since my SR left for boot camp... I finally saw a picture of him on Facebook... and tonight he and his division are getting ready for Battle Stations... I'll be on the road tomorrow getting ready for my flight out on Thursday and hopefully while driving... I'll receive... I'm a SAILOR call... the picture alone was very emotional... can't wait for tomorrow... and really can't wait for Friday...

I can't believe how quickly boot camp has flown by... my SR may not say the same... this site was very helpful especially in the beginning when I felt like I was swimming at night in a dark pond... the boot camp videos, explanation of "the box" and the support on the PIR date so we could plan ahead was all very helpful... the dreaded "box" actually became exciting thanks to this site... I've met some great moms and dads on this site... I even met a Navy Mom on Facebook whose son had recently…

Drum roll please... I finally received my first letter from my son... it was one heck of a letter... very raw... very vintage... very direct and to the point... sounds like he is also achieving some personal goals... and unfortunately was sick once as many in his division have been sick... despite all of that... he does sound like he is getting the BEST out of boot camp... just strongly dislikes the morning "wake up" call...

We have a Survival Guide for Navy For Moms Newbie (clickable link). You'll find everything you need to get started. Videos, PDF files of boot camp processing days, links to all the important groups plus tips on how to use this site. Keep in mind the videos and PDF files may take some time to download the first time you try it. It'll look like nothing is happening. Be patient. Best part is it'll be here on your very own page as a reference. Click the MY PAGE tab on above menubar to access your page anytime - you should do it at least once a day to see if you have any postings on your comment wall (like this one). Good luck. NOTE to moms: your emotions are going to go through some real highs and lows. It's all part of letting go. It would be unnatural for you not to feel a sense of loss, even though you are very proud. That loss is saying goodbye to his/her "childhood" and their dependence on you, as his/her "mom" - it's a role we have embraced from their birth. How can we not feel something when it is changing FAST? Just stay with us. The Boot Camp Moms, Navy MEPS/Dep and the PIR groups are here to see you through from beginning to end.

BunkerQB,
