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.

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.
The guide contains links to the Boot Camp Moms group, a list of PIR groups, the RTC site, videos, powerpoint slides, pdf files (The Family Guide from RTC). For the newer members, the link to this guide is included in a welcoming message from the Navy For Moms admins. If the new member would simply click on MY PAGE on the menu bar, she'll/he'll access her own personal page, then scroll down to the message from the N4M admin. It'll always be there as a reference. Thank you for taking the time to help newer members. My son's commitment to the Navy ended this year. He is now a civilian. I met so many good friends thru this support network.
I see you joined the Moms of Daughters 2 group and I want to welcome you!! We are a close, friendly, supportive group of Moms and look forward to getting to know you and your sailor. I see you are brand new to N4Ms, when does your daughter leave for boot camp? Please feel free to jump in and join our chats. You can ask any questions you may have, talk freely about your feelings, fears or concerns, or just chat about life. We are all in different phases of our daughters Naval careers and we are always there for each other!!! I have a certain soft spot when it comes to sailor daughters going to the OS rating. I was an OS when I served years ago and the rating had just been opened for women. I was the second female to be rated as an OS3!! Again, Welcome Aboard!!!!!
