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.
Been quite a few yrs since I've commented on here. Son Kyle went from boot camp at Great Lakes in 2011 to Fort Sam Houston in San Antonio for Corpsman Medical Training. Went to Portsmouth VA and was working at the Naval Medical Center for about 3 yrs. Was then sent out to Camp Pendleton for field training then Miramar (former Top Gun) San Diego to work with a Marine Air Squadron. Fortunately he went overseas once to Jordan for 2 wks. But finshed out his 5 yrs there in S.D. I was able to visit him for a wk before he got out. It was a wonderful time! He got out this past April and is now enrolled at IU studying Athletic Training. Very proud of my young man! I feel the Navy did a wonderful job with him and gave him the guidance and confidence to make good choices in his life. Thank you Navy! Best of luck to the rest of you Navy moms and dads out there! HOO YA!
Hang in there! They keep them really busy, so it may be a few weeks. I know how you feel, it is not a feeling a mom would ever forget. Pray for him every day(I know you do already!), and just be patient. you will hear from him. He sounds like a good kid!
