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.
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.
I am the mother of 3 girls. My oldest daughter is actually my step daughter and is married and lives in Texas with her husband and two children. My first born is the Navy Girl and left for BC on 6/1/09, my 44th birthday...not the greatest birthday :( My youngest daughter is a freshman in high school and is already thinking about joining the Navy when she graduates.

Good morning LaVonda,
Yes, that is my Chrissy, her legal name is Christina, Chrissy is her nickname. And she is from Sacramento. She grew up in Pioneer and moved to Sacramento when she got married. Chrissy is 24 years old. And getting a divorce, her divorce will be final in July, but they settled everything before she left. Chrissy never lived in Sutter Creek, I moved here with my youngest daughter when I divorced. Yes, I got a real letter from her dated 5/31, she said she likes the weather. I am gald to hear our daughters know each other! Very Cool! - Vicky
Is Lakeport near Mendocino? I think you about a 3 hour drive northwest of me. I live in the foothills, Sutter Creek in Amador County. This is the first time my daughter, Chrissy has lived out of state. It is so hard to wait for snail mail letters. It will be nicer when they finish Boot Camp. I hope she will get email then.
