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.

Wow you don't have to apologize to me for taking so long to answer a post!!! I am so happy your daughter passed everything and graduated from boot camp!!! And how lucky are you to be able to see her in the live stream!!! Yes, it would make me get all teary also!!
So what is next for your girl?? Is she going off for A school? What job will she be doing?? Let me know how she's doing!!!
I'm so sorry you won't be able to attend the PIR. I haven't check on it in awhile but have you heard if RTC still live streams the graduation?? I know it's not the same but it will give you some idea of what it's like. Just know that each company lines up behind their number and they are in numerical order. Depending on where the camera is you may be able to see her company.
I am so sorry I did not get the chance to welcome you to our Moms of Daughters 2 group!! For some reason my N4Mss notifications are no longer coming to me!! So welcome to our group, feel free to comment on the group page, and keep us posted on your daughter and where she is in her career path!!
Hi Ummi-- Yes. I live just south of Denver. I have my whole life except for a 16 year vacation in San Diego thanks to the US Navy and Sony. Your SR left on my B-day. I'm so sorry she's in the RCU. Hopefully she's doing well and can resume training soon. It's surprising (But not unheard of) that she's still there and not already back in training.
There is a Colorado Navy Parents FB Page that is active from time to time. I'm on there too.
