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.
OMG, I am in tears right now. ;( As soon as he landed in Chicago on Wednesday and had a chance to call me, I tried so hard not to cry while talking to him. It was only for less than 5 minutes that we spoke. He kept telling me 'mom, I got this, I am and will be ok. I am just worried about you. Mom you will not hear from me in 3 to 4 wks from now but know that I am ok.' I was at a Drs. appointment with my 18 yr old daughter and as soon as we ended the conversation and hung up I busted out in tears in front of everyone that was at the Drs office. I couldn't contain myself. Thank you so much for the advice, I don't want him to worry therefore, I will try to hold my tears when he calls. I already have 3 letters ready to be sent to him & looking forward to his Graduation day. I am glad I came accross this site & be able to share my emotions with others. Like mom always say...There is always a reward in all-hard work and sacrifices, so you must be patient and stay strong in all circumstances." God bless you and your family! :)
