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.
Hi, wanted to welcome you to the AECF group! Looks like your hubby is about half way thru bootcamp (?) hoping you are seeing regular letters from him now. Will you be moving up to GL to join him once he starts school? We have some good threads in teh AECF wives discussion that maybe of interest to you -
Do you know if he will be an ET or an FC yet? They used to tell them about four weeks into bootcamp but lately it seems to be right before graduation. My hubby was an FC for over 10 years and now our son is the FC and is stationed in Hawaii (someone had to take those orders!!!) Both rates are great rates with lots of schooling on the front end. He will probably be in GL about a year and then he will move to another state for C school. Expect schools to last 18 -24 months. Let us know what questions you might have and welcome to the group.
