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). Still limited to 2 guests maximum.
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.
RESUMING LIVE PIR - 8/13/2021 - ONLY 2 GUESTS ALLOWED
MASK AND SOCIAL DISTANCING IS REQUIRED.
NO MASK, NO ENTRY
**UPDATE - 2020**
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.

Happy, nervous, anxious, scared... yet blessed mother of 2 beautiful children and a wife to my high school sweetheart...a newly enlisted Navy Man! My children are 7 and 2. I just recently graduated from Cosmetology school, and quit my position as a CBO specialist (central banking operations) to stay home with our children. Next month I hope to be a liscensed cosmetologist. I love fashion, playing piano, reading books, and chatting with new people!

FLEXIBILITY! Even though my husband has been in bootcamp for 2 weeks, I am quickly learning the true meaning of adaptation.
Hey! Did he say for sure that he had "liberty "Monday and Tuesday? I asked because in the past, some of the moms thought so and booked their trips home on Tues afternoon or Wed. But then they found out that the guys had to do chores around RTC on Mon and Tues, and weren't even allowed to call their family. If he said "liberty" for sure, that would be wonderful! Is he staying in GL for A School? If so, let me know. I have a friend whose son PIRed in May and is still in GL in school. I will message her and see if her son had liberty Mon and Tues, just for info. I know all are different though. I'm sure rooting for LIBERTY for all of that time! Hooyah!
My son is in Div 8.He's 22, getting used to being away from his moms good food. The first week was tough...I got a letter today saying things are much better. Your hubbie is the mail-man...he must be very popular!!! I'll give you my son's name in a future private message. Take care and hope to meet you soon. God Bless
