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.
Hmmm..this really is something! So...now you are only using Firefox to log on to the internet, correct? Not opening IE at all, right? If you are still having this problem when using only Firefox, then it has to be a setting issue somewhere. Try one more time....shutting your computer off for a minute, turning back on, then use Firefox. Don't touch IE at all! good luck!
Alisia, LoL, I used to drive my kids nuts asking them to help me on the computer.
AEGIS is not over-maned because it is a bit more technical. However, your son should not let that put him off. He must have done very well on his ASVAB to be in AECF.
There is no way that your son could get a job and do school too. The Navy does not allow that. He could do volunteer work if he liked while going to school. Brenden used to volunteer at the Animal Shelter on base. He could not do much volunteer work because ATT was so intense. I think he used to go to the Animal Shelter on Friday after school. He really enjoyed helping out with the animals. He liked doing that so much that he got a tattoo on his upper left arm of a huge wolf paw print, LoL. I was kind of surprised that he had done this because he used to be afraid of needles. I guess after being jabbed in boot camp with tons of shots, he got over his fear.
As for getting work while on hold. I think each department on base posts the jobs available. I think they are posted in each ship. . I will have to ask my son how he got his.
I definitely recommend that your son gets a job while he is on hold. . He will go nuts cleaning otherwise and he will be soooo bored.
There are many different types jobs to choose from. Lots of civilians have lost their jobs on base due to the cut back. So students who are done with (A)school have been filling in.
We should be able to send from both locations...under pic and at bottom of page. I'm gonna do a little investigating...you've got me curious now! I thought sending from the top was "private" that no one else could see.. and the bottom posted to our "wall." Hmmmm.....very interesting! I have to run for now..I'll be off the computer for a while.
Well, at least you are "receiving" messages! Let's see what the N4M techical folks have to say, but I sounds like its some kind of setting issue with Explorer 9....especially if you did not have this problem before downloading Explorer 9.
It still wouldn't hurt to check you have the latest updates with Adobe Flash and Java like I mentioned earlier.
In case you are wondering why I'm offering these suggestions...I'm a freelance web designer and computer techie geek. I'm also happy to try to help.
Rsproudmom,,, happy mothers day first of all. I was readying some of your notes and wanted to say hello. my name is Renie and my sailor graduated 1-7-11 and is still at great lakes finishing up his school for FC. He finished ATT and now his A school and then C school all in GL and will get his base . I am being selfish and wish its in San Diego.
I send him care packages and I love doing it every month. I am so proud of him. He seemed to be a little up tight in att school but seems to be feeling better now that it is over.
