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.
I am writing you because I saw that you were interested in a packing party that was planned but then cancelled. I want to personally invite you to the very first Southern New England Regional Packing Party on Saturday, Dec 1st, from 11:30am to 5pm (or earlier if we finish earlier).
This party is a GO! It will NOT be cancelled regardless of the numbers.
So won't you please consider joining us?
There is a discussion about it in Connecticut Navy Moms page with all the details. Please take a look and see what's happening and then plan to be there.
If you would please respond either to this comment, by PM, or just leave a message/comment in the discussion room it would really help.
I did get your message Christine. It came into my inbox. The one you just sent came through this thread. I hope your doggie is going to be ok? I also hope you can make it. It would be so much fun to have you there too! Without you I'm surrounded by Marines!
I certainly understand if you won't be able to be there - I guess we have to be mothers to all!
Hi there! If you would like to meet for coffee this week I have Wednesday or Thursday available. We could meet at the Starbucks in Colchester if that works for you. There's also Tim's Bistro in Colchester if you want food as well as coffee. They make great stuff!
We could share stories about our boys!
Thanks for reaching out to me. I would love to meet for coffee sometime! My son has a few close friends who are in the service, but the Marines. No other Navy Moms that I can talk to. I miss him so much. He does try to reach out to me as much as he can. It's much tougher now that he is overseas.
