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.
Good morning! If you would keep my son Blake in your prayers. He called last night and is pretty bummed. They are putting is boot camp on hold for 6 weeks, because he tweeked his knee and they are putting him thru physical therapy. So he isn't going to be graduating on Dec 13 with his group! He said he has met a lot of great people and the few that got there first are close friends now!! I am sad for him! So he won't be graduating now until the end of January!! He is sad because he would have had 2 weeks of leave to come home for Christmas and now that is off!! He is feeling better than he was but is bummed he has to wait so long to see family! He said the good thing about the holding barrack is that he can write letters to home anytime!! So please pray that he keeps his spirits up and he can complete boot camp! Praying that the physical therapy works!
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 of OPSEC 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 change number 3. Take care and blessings to you and yours.
Welcome toBoot Camp Moms (and loved ones). I look forward to sharing this journey with you. Be sure to check out the Pages (found under the pictures of the Members) for information on what to expect and to help you prepare for PIR.
When did or will your future Sailor ship to the RTC?
What is your future Sailor's rating (job/specialty) going to be? There are groups for most ratings and/or "A" Schools and knowing that will help you to better plan for PIR weekend.
