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.
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.
You're not the only one who had trouble with GPS - after PIR our gps told us there were two Longhorn's and we chose the one closer only to arrive 16 miles to find no Longhorn so we had to drive 30 something miles then to the one I had googled originally!
We had a great time and I know she was just tickled that you came before she flew out!
We went back to hotel after leaving base and power napped for about 2 1/2 hrs. so we could get up and be there. We were told it would take 1 1/2 hrs. to get to Midway so we left hotel around 1:30 thinking we would arrive around 3 a.m. We were there just a few minutes after 2 beating the buses even. It was so great to see them come in! We left after flight and went back to nap again at hotel. It was worth the cirlces under the eyes!
