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.

Against Navy policy...thanks so much!
HI ! YES I got my call yesterday while shopping in Walmart. lol It was the longest phone call I ever had with her. She said she isn't feeling to well and she had a fever a couple nights ago but won't go to the medic for fear she will fall behind. So the tough cookie that she is she said she will suck it up and move on. She had no idea when battlestation was nor will they give them any information about it. I filled her in on all the knowledge I and my husband had about it, so now she is informed on what to expect.
So what did your SR say? I am so excited to see her in uniform for the first time and to see how much she has changed. I can't wait to hold her.
She did tell me that she will be attending A school right there at lakes after PIR. She will be there for about 5 months then she will get her two week liberty. At first I was a little down about that but then I thought about the time frame and it actually will work out better having her come home during the summer when the weather is nice and there is more to do.
Can't wait to hear from you. I haven't found many moms here from our ship and division.
So nice to here back from you.Hope that you and your family had a Happy New Year!! It's nice to hear from someone in the same boat as me (no pun intended).Thanks for the link I will denfinitely check it out.My son seems to be doing well.He told me that the RDC calls him Georgia because of his southern accent (LOL).I sent pics recently and he received them without problems.I went to the Walmart and made three collages of a whole bunch of pics from home, that way he had a lot to look at but only 3 pages to keep up with,he said that worked out really well. I'm still trying to decide on where to stay,do you know if the Navy Lodge has a shuttle to the base for grad I was told that was the way to go when going on base.I'm kinda leery about getting a rental car because coming from Georgia we have no snow driving skills, LOL. But what ever we do,I guess we better start making some decisions soon,because our boys are getting close to graduation.Can't wait to hug him again!!(Iknow you feel the same way about your sailor).Well can't wait to here from you again.Have A great week!
