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.
Please see changes to attending PIR in the PAGES column. The PAGES are located under the member icons on the right side.
Hey Tricia. Thanks for the invite!! Although my time is coming to an end with the Navy, I know that I will always be a part of this great group and will want to keep in touch and check in to find out what great things are going on in everyones lives. Thank you for your prayers, it has been a rough couple of weeks, but I will be back on my feet and busy as ever before long.
I hope that this deployment has not been too hard on your or your Sailor. It has been a very long one to me. It feels like a lot longer that the last one, but I take comfort in knowing that this is his last! While I am so proud of him for serving his country I know that he is not happy with some of the things that have been going on and I only want for my children to be happy. His little family needs him home as much as he needs to be home with them. If you need anything anytime please feel free to message me!!
