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 truthfully believe the opportunities that can be had way out way what they can gain in civilian life. When I see crime and violence on the streets when I see kids not even graduating yet alone going to college, then we should be so proud and greatful. They are being well fed and cared for and can't steer far wrong.
Our Navy experience so far...
It was positive and maturing. Our relationship has grown stronger.

We are definitely going to graduation. I will let you know where we will be staying. We will be going to the meet and greet. Will you be going to graduation? It is very hard to raise your kids and be involved in every aspect of their life and then just send them off with strangers (even if it is the US Navy) and not talk to them or see them every day. Our other son is in the AIr Force and he just graduated from basic training in June. That was brutal too. I know we raised them to be able to go out on their own, but boy is it hard Lol
