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.

I am a mother of 4 children.1 son and 3 daughters, my oldest daughter is a USN Seabee, she is a CECN.
She loves her job and her fellow Seabee co-workers.
I am here to support my
Stage of (Sailor’s) Navy career?
When I heard “Navy,” I...
Was proud and encouraged it
The Navy offers opportunities that...
perseverance, never give up on your kids. I have weathered a lot with my daughter while she was trying to get finished with BC. She has the heart and soul and showed me that she will never give up. I have now watched as one made it through with trials and as one will come home and have to start his life over again. My advice, hang on tight. Things that seems so on the civilian side can change and not be so on the Navy side. Use God as your Guide.
Our Navy experience so far...
It was positive and maturing. Our relationship has grown stronger.
Hello, sorry I did not get back to you sooner, no internet at home. My daughter has only been in BC for 2 weeks and they stamped on her report that she can not reinlist in the Navy or Marines. What can she do? She is sitting in Ship 5 now waiting to hear from legal.
So do tell, how is Kayla doing? Dustin finally called yesterday...his girlfriend, which is fine. She said he told her to throw away the letters he wrote the first week because he definately feels different now. (whew) Keep me posted on activities, I would love to help with any project! Robin
The Navy Hymn just came on my station which prompted me to check for the submariners verses, and found these for Kayla:
Lord, stand beside the Women who build, And give them courage, strength, and skill. O grant them peace of heart and mind, And comfort loved ones left behind. Lord, hear our prayers for all Seabees, Where'er they be on land or sea.
R. J. Dietrich (1960)
O God, protect the women who, In service, faith in thee renew; O guide devoted hands of skill And bless their work within thy will; Inspire their lives that they may be Examples fair on land and sea.
Hi Tobianne, My girl passed her run this morning!!!!!!!! I am so excited and my whole office now knows. Something about running two of my coworkers over while getting close to a window for the reception clued them in!!!! Thank you for your prayers and good wishes. You were right a great weight has been lifted off my shoulders. She called me on Saturday so devastated and today in great joy. God is so good and faithful. Ellen
Thanks, now if the recruiter would give me a call back to confirm what we have figured out. Take care and tell your daughter I am proud of her. Had some good friends in the Seabees at Charleston. They always seemed to me to have a lot of fun and a good job.
She is going to be a CTN. Going back to Pcola. We were stationed there for a while. Not on Corry but on NAS. I was a CTM so I am familar with Corry. Once she gets there she will be good I know. I will keep you informed.
