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.
Also make change 3 (see the words in bold) so that this page is no longer visible to EVERYONE (Anyone) with access to the web.I suggest "Just My Friends" since you have chosen to include pics on your My Page.
There may be other changes you need to make as well, so read and consider each of the changes.
Another change that I recommend that is mentioned in change 1 is to change the ZIP Code to one that is not easily associated with you or your Sailor.
Since you have a Sailor, you can change "Waiting to leave for Boot Camp" above to "Enlisted." You can make that change on the same page when you change the ZIP Code.
I was able to get airline tickets to see natashas graduation (she dosent know) anyway, can you tell me where you stayed while you were there? did you have to rent a car or do they have a shuttle to the base?
Hi Judy, Natasha would loved to go to officer school but her GPA's were not good enough to do so. Natasha is starting as an E3 and is scheduled to depart in October for bootcamp. Again I dont know what happend, I just know that Natasha thinks the world of him and talked about going to Florida to be with Jesse until the breakup. Now she has changed her career path and has also joined the Navy, and even though its a new scarey future, I believe it will be a great beginning to a new way of life for her. :)
Hi Judy! Natasha has talked about you often, she really thinks your a great lady. Yes its sad about Tasha and Jesse, She is really having a rough time through the break-up and as I dont understand why or what happen between them, it just breaks my heart to see her hurt. Now the Navy owns her as well and all I can hope for is a bright future for her. I also wish the same for Jesse.
Hi Judy, I hope your Thanksgiving has been a pleasant one. I will forward Jesse's email to Rachel. There is also a Facebook page for their group which Rachel will tell Jesse about if he does not know it already. She was home for the weekend, which was so wonderful. We just put her on the bus back to NYC about an hour ago. Talk to you later. Violet
Hi JudyM, that is very exciting. My son enlisted and then got into pilot program through the Seaman's the Admirals, so the Navy paid for his college. He had to go to OSC before he started college. Your son probably won't know which primary school they are sending him to until he's in OSC or at the end. Let me know what he gets, my son's primary was at Whiting Tower in Pensacola (more Milton though).
