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).
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.

"hi there CSW, I saw your post about Pearl Harbor, my sailor just received orders for Hawaii and will be leaving in February - can you recommend a hotel near the base or anything that could be helpful when planning to see my Sailor.
thank you so…"

I saw your post on the Nuke Moms page about sailors being disciplined for getting tattoos. If you have any other specific information or documentation that you could send to me, I would appreciate it. I help out a lot on the BC Mom group and there as been some recent discussion of new sailors getting tattoos and I would like to have more than just 3rd party before I share or post over there, so I don't start any panic. Thanks!!
I'm Admin for the "Sub Moms" group and I saw your comment about questions being a sore subject. I hope no one in our group gave you grief about asking questions! I read all the comments posted, but may have missed a couple. I welcome ANY questions (none are too dumb!) on our page and you're always welcomed to ask me directly with a comment on my personal page. It's been my experience that "Sub Moms" is a congenial group (no arguing or ugliness in 13 years!), but that experience may not be the same for everyone.
Please reach out if you have anything you'd like to discuss :)
