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.
Click on OPSEC and PERSEC (Making Changes to Your Profile) and the Page will open in a new window. Read the Page and follow the directions at the bottom to make change 3 (see the words in bold) so that this page is no longer visible to EVERYONE (Anyone) with access to the web. Don’t forget to click the “Save” button at the bottom.
There may be other changes you need to make as well, so read and consider each of the changes.
Another change that I recommend that is mentioned in change 1 is to change the ZIP Code to one that is not easily associated with you.
Ejrwelch, hi, it is Susan, michael's mom. I have not been on here since last July, when my husband and I travelled to Monterrey to see Michael! Had a good time. My email provider went out of business in meantime, so I started a new page here, just Susan, I am the one from Kanarraville. I need to email administrator and see if there is a way to get back in to my old profile. Michael has become very independent since arriving in Monterrey. He seems to really love the Navy and CTI. And is taking to his language like a fish to water. He has been there for 7 months now. he never texts us, and usually has only brief responses when we text him. I am wondering if you have met him yet? He really did not want me on here, hence I have been off here for awhile. How are you doing in your classes? Are you close to graduation?
If you want to write him and give him a head's up on what to expect in Monterrey, that would be great! Also, did your parents come to see you at PIR? If so, where did they stay? Was there a great place to eat around there?
All the best. Hope your studies are going well. I spoke to Michael briefly this morning. He had received a phone card. So far, all seems to be going well. thanks!!! susan
Yes, I appreciate that very much!!! I don't have his address yet! Have been looking every day for the mail! But, no letter yet....it should be here by tomorrow. I am going to get off here now, and call his recruiter and see if the recruiter has the address, so I can at least send Michael a valentine! I work part time as a speech path at a charter school in town, so I have to leave for work at the moment, also! But, I will be getting back with you when I have an address. I really appreciate your willingness to give Michael a head's up!!! :)
Welcome to NavyforMoms.com. My name is Ronny and my son has been in the Navy since February of 2012. He is currently stationed in San Diego with a Helicopter Squadron. He is an Aviation Structural Mechanic. I hope you find all the info you are looking for here, and if you have any questions feel free to ask. My son is 3rd Generation Navy, so I do know a little about the Navy..:)
If you have a new Sailor who is in Boot Camp, or leaving soon, visit CallsforRecruits.org and I will send you FREE Pre-Paid Phone cards for your SR to use while they are in boot camp. I started that program when my son left for Boot Camp :)
Welcome Aboard and I wish your Sailor Fair Winds and Following Seas.
