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 as of 11/10/2022 PIR vaccination is no longer required.
**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).
**UPDATE 8/25/2022 - MASK MANDATE IS LIFTED. Vaccinations still required.

RESUMING LIVE PIR - 8/13/2021
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.
Facebook will be great for keeping you in contact with your Sailor once he is in "A" School and in the fleet. You can check the RTC’s fB page with or without a facebook account and there will be pictures there after PIR. Some people like the facebook groups better than N4M, but I am concerned with PERSEC since real names are posted on fB and do not recommend posting often if you do choose to join.
Yes, Division 908 is Ship Staff/Honor Guard. See the info in the Page,800 and 900 Divisions. No, he will not have any duties during the 12/12/2014 PIR since Division 905 is also Ship Staff/Honor Guard and will have PIR on that date.
I have a LOT of info in the Pages (found under the pictures of the Members) in Boot Camp Moms (and loved ones). Read on or two a day and then go back to them as you need them. There are 20 of them, but you won't need the last one.
If your Username contains your last name, you need to make changes 1, 2, and 3 at the bottom of OPSEC and PERSEC (Making Changes to Your Profile) (clickable link). There may be other changes you need to make as well, so read and consider each of the changes.
Thanks for the Friend request; I hope we can be around for some time to support each other. If there is ever anything I can help you with, don't hesitate to ask. Take care and blessings to you and yours.
