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.

Oh and I forgot put a list of numbers and addresses on a paper stick it in his Wallet, Also without him knowing stick a message maybe a scripture and let him Know you are proud and that he can do this. Believe me when he finds it he will cherish it the whole time because he will get lonely and miss his family so this will come at a perfect time and he will reflect on that message .
If there is anything I can do for you please let me know, also a POA is a good Idea for medical and all the above. Never had one until my Son went to his Duty station and then he got deployed, so he was worried about taxes, luckily he got an extension until he returned and then I got POA so I can handle any and all business for him. Just a suggestion.

Get a head start during boot camp by joining groups for, and learning about, your Sailor's occupational specialty and "A" School; and later your Sailor's duty station and/or Navy ship and homeport. You can also join groups for your own state, region or home town and interests from getting ready for deployment to care package ideas!
Please say Hi when you join a group, and feel free to ask any and all questions - everyone was new once, and there is no "dumb" question.
This site was created by the U.S. Navy just for you, and we look forward to getting to know you and your Sailor.
Welcome to the NAVY family - we're so glad you're here!!
