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.
Thanks for the friend request. It was so nice to meet you at the packing party. You and your husband were so kind to visit with me at lunch. I did not know a soul when I got there. What a spectacular day, I am so excited for the crew to receive all the packages. I wish I could be a fly on the wall Christmas morning. Have a great week!
Thanks for writing :) It is nice to know someone else lives here in Connecticut! haha! Yes I am very far from home and it stinks! But I will follow my husband anywhere :) Yeah I would love to get together with other Navy moms/wives! I don't know anyone here yet!
Boston--a great city. My Dad was born in Dorchester, did 3 years at MIT before being called up to the Armed Air Force (WWII and Korea) Wish we knew more about his service time--his records were burned in a warehouse fire--they've pieced some of them together, but those had not been microfilmed. Dad was not a talker and very hush hush about his time in the service.
