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.
Well the SEAL/SWCC option is on his plate...but he is MA .....If he decides to go for it then I hope he makes it, but, really, I would be happy with him just being MA for now...seals job is so dangerous....and they dont have much of a home life for a long time.... I have a cousin who's son is a seal...it's really tough on his family...he is gone alot....but i will be happy with whatever he chooses, and where ever the Navy life takes him...He is just excited to serve his Country....I am proud of all the young men and women who choose to serve our country, I read that there's only 2 % of our youth in the military...that's a very small % who willfully serve and I know that we are all so proud of them no matter what their duty is, they are all hero's in my book !!
Yeah !!! I'm just happy to find all the moms !!! ...and wow, your son is a handsome boy !! I didn't place pics of my son yet, he could possibly do seals, if he decides and i read we aren't allowed to place their pics up if they go into that field...: ( as bad as i want to I can't...LOL....Well i hope to see you there for PIR and keep in touch ....I can hardley wait the days go by so slow....LOL...
I too have a daughter that just graduated High School mid year. She will walk the Grad line with her class in June, but she graduated early and started College. YEP, lots to adjust to. But, thank goodness for N4Ms we all can help support each other!!
If your recruit is on Ship 3 Div 144 the correct PIR date IS 4/2/10. I have already started a whirlwind of questions going to the Public Affairs office last week...LOL.. they said that there was an error in the form letters that went home with a few recruits. The correct date is 4/2/10 and you can find that on the Recruit Command Center site. It also has quite a bit of information on there if you navigate around. :)
