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.

We Stitch Love is the group of moms that sew the pillowcases that we send. If you read the "New Moms Read First" then you have an idea about packing and shipping.

Hi Christa, I am sending you an email with all the ribbon order information. if you don't get the email let me know and check your spam folder. You can also send a friend request on this site. If you haven't been to my facebook page yet you can go there and check out lots of pics with prices of the scrapbook embellishments. I am going to be adding some more pics hopefully this afternoon of some new items I just designed. If you order the scrapbook items with your ribbons or before I ship you ribbons you don't have to pay extra for shipping the scrapbook items. I can also make custom items for a very reasonable price. I look forward to making the ribbons and scrapbook items for you and your family. Thanks again, Lora
