FIRST TIME HERE?
FOLLOW THESE STEPS TO GET STARTED:
Choose your Username.

Also, please do not include your email address in your user name. Go to "Settings" above to set your Username. While there, complete your Profile so you can post and share photos and videos of your Sailor and share stories with other moms!
Join groups! Browse for groups for your PIR date, your sailor's occupational specialty, "A" school, assigned ship, homeport city, your own city or state, and a myriad of other interests. Jump in and introduce yourself! Start making friends that can last a lifetime.

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.
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.
Ack! I just found this -- all of this! -- on the NavyforMoms page, and I'm a little overwhelmed -- not sure where to look first! I also joined the Facebook page for PIR 08-23-13. Happy to meet you, fellow RTC Mom! Sherri, Zac's Mom - SHIP 12/DIV 313
It looks like our kids are together in the same ship and division. Glad to know I'm not alone!! Much different when it's your child, I went through it 23 years ago as a Fiance. We will have to keep in touch and make sure we meet up at PIR.
Hi, welcome toBoot Camp Moms (and loved ones). I look forward to sharing this journey with you. I see that you have changed your Username so that it no longer contains your last name; you also need to change the URL to this page to remove it from there as well. Number 2 at the bottom ofOPSEC and PERSEC (Making Changes To Your Profile)(clickable link) will tell you how to fix that. There may be other changes you will want to make as well, such as number 3.Since you have an SR at the RTC, you can change "Waiting to leave for Boot Camp" above to "Enlisted". What is your SR's rating (job/specialty) going to be? There are groups for most ratings and/or "A" and knowing that will help you to better plan for PIR weekend. Take care and blessings to you and yours.
