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."

**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.


RTC Graduation

**UPDATE 7/16/2021**




**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.

Thank you for the update and will continue praying for healing and thanking Him for a Christian surgeon.

If you can let us know the date of the surgery so we can pray as the surgery is taking place .   Jesus is above it all!! A  big hug for you.

Comment by John and Yvonne on December 9, 2021 at 10:25am

Jesusintheboat and Blondie,

We had our appt. with the surgeon yesterday and he explained what the surgery would be like. He would work on T12-S1 with screws and rods. It sounds scary but our trust is in the Lord and he told me that he would 'restore me to health and heal my wounds'. And unless he steps in and heals miraculously I feel that he is leading me through surgery. Regardless of which way I know that he is the one who does the healing! We did find our that our Surgeon is a Christian which was a blessing! The surgery will take around 9 hours( which is also scary), but that's why we are praying so specifically for him- for wisdom, clarity, strength, alertness, a clear mind thinking only of the surgery he is performing. I have a peace about all of this as a result of spending time with Jesus this morning! Praise his name! Thank you for your prayers and may the Lord bless you!

Prayer request for Yvonne:
Please keep Yvonne in your prayers. She has an appointment Wednesday with an orthopedic spine surgeon. She is looking at the possibility of having 4 vertebrae in her lower back fused. Right now she is in considerable pain and has great difficulty walking and keeping her balance. She fell last week and her right leg is totally bruised.

Defend the rights of the poor and needy. Proverbs 31:9

Father, open my eyes to the needs around me. Show me how I can be Christ to someone I meet today.

"Keep yourself pure."  1 Timothy 5:22

Jesus, I feel so worn down sometimes, dirty and tired from all the daily battles of life. Thank you for making me clean again.

Comment by Blondie on March 11, 2021 at 4:14pm

Set an example for the believers in speech, in life, in love, in faith and in purity. 1 Timothy 4:12

Jesus, I look to you as my perfect role model and holy example. Keep me mindful that others see you by what I do and say.

The Lord replied, “My Presence will go with you, and I will give you rest.”  Exodus 33:14

Lord, calm my heart when I feel anxious and remind me that you’ve got everything under control. Thank you Lord for hearing our prayers

Humble yourselves, therefore, under God’s mighty hand, that he may lift you up in due time. - 1 Peter 5:6

Father may we all come to you in pray and humble ourselves before the Cross of Jesus. Jesus who takes away the sins of the world, have Mercy on us. You have cleansed us with your blood and made us Children of the Father. Holy Spirit help us follow Jesus, make us worthy to accept this gift of Love. 

[Jesus said,] “Blessed are the merciful, for they will be shown mercy.”  Matthew 5:7

Thank you, Lord, for the many mercies you extend to me each day. Help me to bless others with the same kind of merciful kindness. May we never forget who is King and Ruler of us all.  Through Christ our Lord Amen.
