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 Jen. Hope you got a call today. We reciever about a 15 minute call about 2:30 pm Pacific time. She sounded well, a little shaky when she first heard my voice, but that cleared quickly. She is happy and sleeping well. Food is good. She mentioned your Daughter as someone she is getting to know.
Sounds like they are all being assigned extra jobs. They made my girl the Education Petty Officer. They have a big test coming up on Wednesday. Hope they all do well.
Hi Jen. Sorry it took so long for me to respond, I'm not the best at navigating this site! ☺️ I'm glad to hear My girl is not alone. She enlisted in DEP, and shipped just months after her HS graduation. If all goes well, she will be going to Nuke school. What is your girl going to do? Are they close in age? Will you have to travel far to go to PIR? I'm sure you are as anxious for that first phone call as I am.
