NAVY DADS PHOTO OF THE DAY - 17 October 2021

Senior Navy leaders, government and state officials, and veterans and friends of the world’s first nuclear powered submarine, USS Nautilus (SSN 571), celebrated the commencement of a long-anticipated preservation of the historic ship during a ceremony at the Submarine Force Museum, Friday, October 15.
Nautilus departed the museum, “underway” with tug assistance, and proceeded to nearby Naval Submarine Base New London to begin a $36 million preservation. The project will ensure the National Historic Landmark and Connecticut’s State Ship will remain the centerpiece of the museum and able to inform, educate, and engage the public for the next 30 years.
The preservation is expected to take up to 6-8 months.
Look for more photos and a full story soon.

From RTC:

Update 29 July: 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.
PLEASE NOTE – This policy is subject to change as leadership continues to monitor the spread and impact of the Coronavirus.

Pass-In-Review Ceremonies Return With Guests August 13th
Recruit Training Command will re-open boot camp graduation, or the Pass-In-Review ceremony, for a limited number of family members and guests beginning with graduation ceremonies August 13. Each recruit may invite two guests (max, no exceptions) to attend in person. (Children 2 & under do not count toward the guest limit.) Guests do not need to provide proof of vaccination for COVID-19 to attend. However, in order to ensure the health and safety of all, every person attending is required to wear face masks while indoors and observe social distancing protocols. If you are unable to wear a mask, you will not be able to attend, and will not be allowed into the facility. To help us ensure the health of our new Sailors and staff, and to take full advantage of all Naval Station facilities freely and unmasked (outdoors), we encourage you to be fully immunized before you arrive.


Please continue to follow RTC social media accounts for updates and check this website for the most up-to-date information. For specific questions and inquiries, contact the RTC Public Affairs Office.
Live streaming of our graduations begin at 9 a.m. CST every Friday.
