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.
Cinder... strokes are scarry. Please take care of yourself at this time! You need to be at your best healthwise, so you can focus on what the Drs are saying and doing. I will keep you and your husband in my heart. I hope they figure things out soon.
Thank you for your input about will he or not- I really am having a hard time about it and I will support his decision no matter what. Thanks for reaching out to me I reall appreciate it. Thanks Sue- New York
Hi Cinder...How are you? Just got back from a 9-day trip to see my son at Corry! I drove his truck to him (along with his fiance') and have to say it was one of the greatest trips I've ever done...2125 miles and worth every second of driving!
I believe you had asked how tough CTT school was...My son seems to be doing really good in his CTT class. It is tough but he finished middle of pack with his grades - either a 92 or 94%. He said the lowest score in the class was an 89%. I have to laugh cuz this is a kid I could barely get thru high school and then he tested high on his entrance test! Figures...I always knew he had it in him! He has finished A school and started C school this past week. He will finish this on July 20 and then take 2 other short classes. He is 6 year CTT so he did alot of the classified stuff in A school and now this is the maintenance part of the school and he said he likes it alot! Has your son started school yet?
So sorry about the delay in your question! Would love to get together some time...we could meet half way!
I'm not really sure how he's doing. I've only gotten the 1 letter and 1 call. He usually muddles through, so I'm sure he's fine. But it would be nice to hear even a grunt in response to how are you doing?
