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.

Bella's Mom, Thanks for the Add, I am glad you joined Heads At Ease. You can email me with your name and any questions you may have about what we do or how you can help.
I see that we are about an hour apart from each other, I am in Lake Worth Fl. Maybe if you would like to we can get together and talk and get to know each other. My daughter is on her 5th year in the Navy and 5 year on the Aircraft Carrier USS George HW Bush in VA. I know that it is hard to let them go but let me say one thing, they always know where home is and will come back often. My email is email@example.com. Please let me know if I can help in any way. Welcome Aboard New Navy Mom. :-)
