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.
I'm glad to hear that you received a phone call from your daughter. I am still waiting for a letter or something letting me know that he is okay. I wish he would send something even if it just says "I'm okay!" That would be enough for me.
I would love it if I could make it to graduation, but I don't think that is going to happen. Being a single Mom for so long I've always had to live paycheck to paycheck, but I haven't even had one of those for the last couple of months, so if I end up going it would be a miracle.
Take Care and I hope that you get to hear from your daughter a lot more. Take Care, Cruzanna

Thank you for the comment. I'm glad to hear that you finally received word that your daughter is okay. I will continue watching the mail, hopefully I'll receive a letter soon.
I think the military is harder for our daughters than our sons. My daughter struggled through boot camp in the Air Force, also. She is at her first duty station and she is still struggling with the military live. Hopefully things will get better for her! It always breaks your heart to hear or she that you child is not happy. Just try to encourage her and hopefully things will start to go better for her. God Bless You and your Family.....Cruzanna
