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 4/26/2022** Effective with the May 6, 2022 PIR 4 guests will be allowed. Still must be fully vaccinated to attend.
**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.
Mask Mandate has been lifted but you are still required to be vaccinated.

My daughter is in Tx at Sheppard AFB. She will be there until Jan. Then off to Gulfport for combat training.
My in-laws live in Marlboro, hubby graduated from Marlington. Ok what is AO? lol
My kiddo is CE (construction electrician) Sea Bee. Or as my son says a dirt Sailor!!! lol
He wanted to go Sea Bee also, but was separated in his 5 week of BC just got home Thursday. It was a medical separation, so he will just have to move on and go forward.
How are you doing? I can't wait to see any pictures that come accross to see if I can get a glimpse of Kaela. Didn't they have phonme calls in the past few days because I have not heard from her and I was hoping I would.
Do you know if Joey ordered the PIR DVD ($29)? If not, maybe someone can order it for you at the NEX afterwards, or contact me and I can give you the e-mail address to contact the people putting that together. You need to have that for sure because you will be able to see Joey and the ceremony.
Also, so glad that SOBE got you in touch with someone at RTC. He may have just had had a very low moment when he wrote that letter. I agree with all of the others...go to PIR. BE there for him. I hope that you get some answers after speaking to the RTC contact. Please let me know if I can help you at all. Praying ! -Dianne
Hey! Is everything ok? I just sent you a friend request. I have been off the board for a while today, but was messaged that your son said forget PIR and that he took your names off the list. I will try to go back now and read the posts. Please message me if you need anything, ok? If this has to do with an asmo situation, I think I can help. My son was asmoed too....just let me know! I want to help in any way that I can!
