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.
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.
was wonding if you would find your way to this site to. I also got a nice long phone call, isn't it nice to be able to talk with our sons about day to day stuff. My sons proposed to his girlfriend right after PIR and wants her to drive from Seattle to GC in September.
I also joined a nuke school charleston group that seems pretty active as well. Diane
I just found this note asking me my sons name. Sorry I missed it before. His name is Caleb. Will look for you on FRIDAY!!! So excited!!!! We are flying in from Washington state Thursday (late) evening and will miss the meet and greet
Yes!! How's your son doing? Mine has been sick but somehow has managed to keep going. I was so excited to see his picture on the RTC site playing in the band for PIR. Are going for PIR? I am and am counting the days.

i'm sorry Matts birtjhday is in boot camp Shauns 20th will be July 8 in Charelston (hopefull) maybe we should change Matt's till then for this one and celebrtae then. I know we can't do last names here, I am on facebook Carol Wells Arnold if you want to be on there I figure we have a few years together.. I'm so glad to meet you. it will make them being in Charelston so much easier with someone else going thru it I hear they can not communicate that much there due to security reasons but aleast we can visit
I can't believe you have gotten a letter and a call already. Have not heard anything from Shaun as of yet so have no clue how many Nukes are there. I did not realize there would be so many I guess cause it's harder I just assumned not many. But thats awesome so we will all be south Carolina bound for our vacations...Hopefully they will get to all know each other and bond from everything I've read it is going to be very hard. Best wishes to you and please keep me updated on Matt.. Carol
