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.
RESUMING LIVE PIR - 8/13/2021 - ONLY 2 GUESTS ALLOWED
MASK AND SOCIAL DISTANCING IS REQUIRED.
NO MASK, NO ENTRY
**UPDATE - 2020**
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.
Elizabeth - I think you might have a better chance of a response if you post your question in the nuke mom's group. We have mom's whose sailors are in various phases of the pipeline there. Mine is in prototype. I don't know if I can help you or not but you can message me if you like and I will try.
Yes, same here for her division, (040), had heard from son on 10/16. Maybe they were a push division? Where they had to wait for enough SRs to fill it? Just guessing... Dying for that real phone call and letters, though... I've written several letters to them already.
Hi there, no worries, :-) And I am just learning some of the lingo, myself. :-) NF stands for Nuclear Field (I think, anyway), and DD is for Darling Daughter. DS is Darling Son. My son is on Ship 13, Division 038. They are not twins, just best friends. He is older than she. Still have not had a personal letter or phone call. :-( How about you?
Hello, I am new to this site, and just found your comment. I have two SRs, a son and a daughter, both in the NF. They both shipped on October 16th as well, so they are at RTC together. His division is 038, with a PRI of 13Dec13. Don't know anything about DD as of yet.
