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).
Specific information on this policy change will be provided in the coming days and weeks.

Hi ship 14 my son has been at pcola since July 14th. He waited 3 weeks for School to start. This I am being told is not so bad. He was set to graduate on the 13th of this month. This is not the case though. He has been delayed until the 17th. Then the hold on the hard copies for placement. He has been told he will be here in Lemoore. But I have also been told this can change. We are being told at least a 3 week hold. Good thing is they are being paid, and enjoying the beaches. I have been trying to learn to be patient with all of this. I have learned nothing is ever set in stone. Good luck and enjoy the PIR.
Anita, my internet is down, and I'm having trouble responding to personal messages. Not sure if this is posting on your wall or as a message so I'm going to be cryptic in my response! The latest word from a SR to her mom, is it will be a day earlier than the first day we were given. However, we don't know if that info came from their RDC's or if it was her own "calendar" reckoning. If that is the case, she may not have taken in the holiday and the need to get all of the PIR groups from the grad class that week thru. So.... Kind of up in the air. Julie
