All Hands Magazine's full length documentary "Making a Sailor": This video follows four recruits through Boot Camp in the spring of 2018 who were assigned to DIV 229, an integrated division, which had PIR on 05/25/2018.
**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). Still limited to 2 guests maximum.
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.
RESUMING LIVE PIR - 8/13/2021 - ONLY 2 GUESTS ALLOWED
MASK AND SOCIAL DISTANCING IS REQUIRED.
NO MASK, NO ENTRY
**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 isno 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.
Colton is scheduled to graduate no November 12th...Was hoping to hear from him before then! He called twice in one week as well..He called on a Sunday, then again on a Wednesday!! Looking forward to graduation, are they allowed to leave base?
One phone call when he arrived and one when he was asmoed and put into another division, two weeks later he graduated and the calls flooded in, Mom I need my this, this , this, I can have civies, it was great, but I had to have him slow down and learn the terminology I speak better Navy now than I did in July :-)
Cody had 4 calls during basic; the "I'm here" call, one in late May (he left May 12), one in mid June, and then the "I'm a sailor" call after battlestations. After PIR he was allowed to have his phone so lots more calls then. As for leaving base, they can. Most divisions have to be back by a certain time, but they can leave the base. If they have watch they will have to return to base for it, but it's only a few hours. Cody's division had to be in uniform unless they were in a residence during the weekend. Hope that helps.
