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.
There are a couple ways you can get an email notification from this website. And it depends on if you click "follow" on these different scenarios. First, since you are a member of the MOD2 group you might be getting email whenever someone posts on that group. Go to the group and scroll down past the pictures and discussions to the Comment Wall. You will see an empty box with your profile picture in the upper left corner. Scroll down and you will see the latest comment posted to the group page. You can scroll down and read all the comments you want. It goes backward in time so the newest are always first, and page 1 is always the newest stuff. You can go back as many pages as you want. If you want to respond go back to page one to that empty box with your picture and type your comment in there.
Second, if someone commented on your profile page, you will get an email that someone added a comment to your profile. Go to your page to read it and to comment back click on the "comment back" link at the bottom of their comment, or just click on their picture or name and that will take you to their page and leave a comment on the comment wall. You will always see an empty box with your profile picture in the upper corner and that's where you type.
If you comment on a discussion you will get an email from this site that someone else responded. Go back to the discussion and go to the "last reply by xxx" . Discussions work a little different in that you can comment in the box and it will go to the END of the discussion. Or you can click on the "Reply" to someone's comment and yours will post directly under theirs. Confusing isn't it?????
And I think the last way you will get an email is if someone goes to the group page and clicks on the "send message to the group". Those messages you won't see on the group page but each and every member who has ever joined this group will get that message by email. The only way to respond would be to find their profile and leave a comment on their page, or leave a comment on the group page and hope they read it.
If this doesn't seem to answer your question, send me more info on what kind of email you're getting and I can address that directly. Just for your info, I don't read the actual emails I receive. I see that someone commented on a page, discussion, or my profile and I just go there to read it. The links in the emails don't always work I found!!! Hope this helps!!! Let me know . . . .
