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.

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.

He is our one and only, so proud of him. I home schooled for four years. Quit my job as an instructor when he was two to stay home with him. Best decision I ever made. Worked part time as he got older. I have been a private music teacher for over twenty-five years. My husband is a wonderful godly man, who loves to play golf.
I am here to support my
Stage of (Sailor’s) Navy career?
When I heard “Navy,” I...
Was proud and encouraged it
The Navy offers opportunities that...
I loved the Navy's values and they emphasis being a team player. I love the motto "A Global Force for Good". We know several friends who had Navy careers. One was an Officer and he was the best business man I ever worked for. The other goes to our church and he has been encouraging me about our son. And a close friend's son-in-law was a Navy Seal.
Our Navy experience so far...
It was positive and maturing. Our relationship has grown stronger.
I would definitely have him apply for his passport. It is a lot easier to do it before he leaves for Japan. My daugter has hers and got it before she left and has used it/needed it for travel. It's not that big of a deal to get it. You can get the forms on line and a passport pic at some post offices when you go apply or at places like CVS, etc. Even if it comes after he leaves, you can send it to him in a goodie box.
Good, I'm glad it's been easier for you all. I know it was a relief for me to be able to talk to my husband on a regular basis too :) Corpsman School is tough; they get a lot in those 12 weeks, but he'll be ready for the hospital or FMTB afterwards. Best of luck to your son!
You're quite welcome and thank you for the compliment. My son did get to come home for leave, just in time for Christmas. Such a good thing to see him so determined and forthright about his decision to join. Took my breath away seeing him come down to baggage claim. My co-workers (who've known him since he was a little guy) were awestruck. BEST CHRISTMAS EVER!!
We got a letter today. They have finished the gas chamber and their PFA. The countdown begins. Not sure when battlestations is hopefully we find out tomorrow. We are excited to see her for Christmas. Spent yesterday grocery shopping and today cooking and baking.
Seems like forever since we saw her can't wait, then only 2 weeks till graduation.
