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

Sorry for the typos, I have lost my glasses somewhere this last week and can't see very well.

MsAnna, I accept you as a friend, you are somewhat close to me.  My in-laws lin live in Apple Valley.  Are you going to the Meet and Greet?  Did you get a scarf?  What Division is your daughter in?

Thank you for the offer to help with my sons friend but I don't think you will be able to help.  He fly's into O'Hare at midnight, unless you want to go get him at that time.  He is just a young kid and I do not want him to spend a lot of money on taxi or shuttle service, it is enough that he is coming to Chicago for my son.  He was Navy, he just got back from Afganistan in November as a Navy prison gaurd and then he got out of the Navy in December so he understand what our SR's are going through.  I think it is great that he is just coming to support him so I want to help save hime money.  Looks like I am going to be getting up and driving into Chicago at midnight, but thankyou for the offer.
