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.
Glad to be your friend!! Now you can access my page - altho the pics are getting older. Time to do some updating I suppose... Also, know we can PM each other if we want to talk about something not on a public site.
I hope that you are warm, safe, dry & have lights there in Edison. We are still alright, altho right after 1pm we had a LOT of flickering lights, but they managed to stay on. Thank goodness.
Hi! I left you a message on Molly's page. But, I also was looking back in the Special Hugs discussion & found on page 72 messages both Pat L. in IL and I had left for you. Did you see them? There is still time to get involved in the Special Hugs (aka SH) mission for October if you'd like. We always post what we are shipping and the number of box(es) so we know how we are doing at getting items requested & so that I can give our POC an estimate of what to expect. Anyway, feel free to just jump right in -- after the storm is over!!
Hi Katze, my daughter is in class 160, alpha. I crochet and would love to make an afghan like that for my daughter and future son in law who is a Marine. LOL Can you tell me where she got the pattern!!?
I love the picture of the cake from your son's going away party. When I viewed it on my phone I was able to zoom in and read the writing on the bottom left corner. On the website I can't read it. Can you please tell me what it said. All I remember was that it brought tears to my eyes when I read it. Thanks.
