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.
Mask Mandate has been lifted but you are still required to be vaccinated.

Please see changes to attending PIR in the PAGES column. The PAGES are located under the member icons on the right side.
That is perfect TK! I am working on getting some names.I had difficulty in responding to you. I STILL CANNOT reply to anyone? In fact everyone! So I logged in and I am now getting mail from every person who comments in every PIR group, every new member that joins N4M. Haha - guess I should know better than to post an open message to NavAdmin. LOL
I can have you send them to me and we can distribute them. Does your son have a name of a person in his division? That is the only way they will get through. If so, then proceed and I can help you with the rest. We do not write anymore unless we have developed a relationship with a particular SR at about 7-10 before PIR.
I have to go and pick up my Son from the airport. Coming in for Mother's Day...
Take care TK. Your heart is in the right place as I am sure your son has followed your example. This, will indeed make him stronger and the wind will soon be back in those sails!
Can you send me your email through message to I can communicate privately with you. Thank you!
Still am not able to send messages at this time. I have been trying from yesterday, all evening and this morning?
We cannot accept your letters if they are already made out to an SR that may not be there anymore. Moreover, it is suspicious to send a package that is not expected and approved ahead of time, which would put base on higher alert.
So, need all the information to determine if we can do anything with the well wishes from the 5th graders.
TK - your project is exactly what we like to help coordinate. What is needed is that as soon as you can, ask your SR for names, ship and division. Let me know PRIVATELY and we will help to facilitate this. Due to security we ask that you do everything privately in regards to your well meaning effort. Please take a few minutes to read the guidelines after you accept my friend request so I can approve you. HooYah!
