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 4/26/2022** Effective with the May 6, 2022 PIR 4 guests will be allowed. Still must be fully vaccinated to attend.
**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).
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.
**UPDATE 8/25/2022 - MASK MANDATE IS LIFTED. Vaccinations still required.
RESUMING LIVE PIR - 8/13/2021
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.
Click on OPSEC and PERSEC (Making Changes to Your Profile) and the Page will open in a new window. Read the Page and follow the directions at the bottom to make change 3 (see the words in bold) so that this page is no longer visible to EVERYONE (Anyone) with access to the web. Don’t forget to click the “Save” button at the bottom.
There may be other changes you need to make as well, so read and consider each of the changes.
Another change that I recommend that is mentioned in change 1 is to change the ZIP Code to one that is not easily associated with your Sailor.
Syntia thanks for getting back with me about the train. I may go to Chicago on the train and then fly back home. I am keeping my step granddaughter so she can finish out this year of school before she moves up to Chicago with the rest of her family.
Hi there Syntia, did you get you call yet? I was so happy to hear my girls voice this weekend. It seemed to happen a lot earlier than everyone said it would, but maybe the Navy wanted to motivated our kids and let me get a good nights sleep for the first time since my gal left.
HI there Syntia, thank you for inviting me to be your friend on this adventure. Yes, like you I am an empty nester, its so tough. It sounds like you really love your son. I think what is so hard right now is that we can't talk to our kids! But soon you will get your box, then the letter, and I know soon a call or letter from our kids. I see that your from AZ. I lived in Goodyear for about 4 years in early 2001, worked at a swim school. So hang in there and know I'm here when you feel like sharing!
My son left for GL on Wednesday (1-30) from Albany, NY. We got his I'm here call at 3am. He said, "I'm here, you will get a box in about 2 weeks, and I can't talk long, I've already been yelled at, love ya bye". I don't think I got a word in. But at least I know he is there.
