* * * New Guidance for Pass-In-Review Ceremonies Beginning August 13th * * *

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.

**PREVIOUS INFORMATION**

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, 2021.

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.

For those of you that will be going to PIR here is the link to the tickets and guest policy for PIR (8/13/21 and beyond). 

GRADUATION CEREMONY TICKETS AND GUEST POLICY

Once you click on it either scroll down to the bottom or see the heading  "Graduation Ceremony Tickets and Guest Policy" on the right hand side.

From the RTC FaceBook page today (8/6/21):

Beginning Aug. 13, graduating Sailors are authorized liberty following the Pass-In-Review (PIR) ceremony. Liberty comes with rules and regulations Sailors must follow.

While on liberty, RTC Sailors will not consume alcohol (regardless of age), use tobacco products or drugs, visit tattoo or piercing parlors, hitchhike, or drive a motor vehicle. Sailors must remain in the complete uniform of the day at all times.

For all Recruit Training Command (RTC) Sailors NOT transferring to Training Support Center (TSC) Great Lakes, liberty expiration is at 2100 (9 p.m.). If “A” school is at TSC Great Lakes, Sailors will immediately return to their compartment after PIR to transfer and they will get liberty upon arrival to their new command once checked in and completed with any administrative actions. For Sailors not immediately detaching RTC, Saturday and Sunday liberty hours are from 0800-2100.

The expiration of liberty is in the division compartment, NOT at the front gate and late Sailors will be subject to disciplinary actions that could impact subsequent liberty. Sailors are NOT permitted to ride in private vehicles to their barracks from the main gate, so be sure to return your Sailor to the main gate with enough time for them to walk back to their barracks.

Upon return from liberty, all bags will be inspected for contraband. Contraband includes, but is not limited to: drugs, alcohol, tobacco products or associated paraphernalia, medication unless prescribed by a military doctor, food, magazines or papers, and portable electronic devices (cell phone, ear pods, etc.).

Thank you for helping us complete the mission of liberty while keeping the Navy’s newest Sailors safe.
