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 just sent you a friend request so we can keep in touch easier to meet in San Diego. Has your son given you any rumors of date? Our son is an EM and he was just transferred to the Stennis from the Reagan especially for this early deployment. This is his first deployment.
Hi again, I hit the add comment before I finished typing. My husband was born in San Sebastian one road over from where we live. No, I am sorry I don't speak Spanish (not from the lack of trying) just don't get it right. Yes, sometimes I go to Bayamon as my husband has a sister and several nieces and nephews as well. Really hope that we can get together some day. It would be so nice.
Hi, so glad to hear from you. I was thinking of you yesterday while Hurricane Earl was swirling around but I had no phone, cable or internet yesterday so I couldn't get in touch with you. Had you in my prayers though. Hope all is okay.
Yes, sometimes I feel that living here is in never - never- land far away but I have a comfortable life here so really can't complain. I miss all my kids, and my grand kids but especially my SR. He is special in his own way. My first letter from him says that BC "f-- sucks" but that he will make it through. If all is okay, he will graduate 10/1. Says he has a few in his division that haven't learned how to listen yet - so time passes by slowly and they keep losing phone privileges - guess they will get it together sooner or later. lol Keep smiling - God Bless You and your family.

Hi, Angie left me a post to contact you. My name is Kathleen and i live in San Sebastian, PR. My son left for BC Aug. 10, 2010. I am waiting for my "Kid in a Box" and form letter. Angie suggested me to contact you as I was feeling alone. I have no family here and my husband's family do not support my son's choice. I see that you live in Bayamon. I have a sister-in-law and her children that live there. Hope to hear from you.

Click on My Page. The next screen says My Page Settings. Go down to the Address and in the box next to “http://www.navyformoms.com/profile”, make the change to motheralways or mother_always or random letters and numbers. Blessings to you and yours.
