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.
Proud Navy mom of my daughter Megan. She is in her 6th week of Bootcamp.
It has been extremely difficult for me. She is doing well now and I can't wait to see her. She told me some moms are trying to plan a Thanksgiving party.
She is at the Great Lakes Recruit Training Command, Ship 12 DIV 008.
I would love to meet some of you. Please respond.

We both are supporting her division and keeping up with all the progress they have made.She was very sad to leave but is going to try to get a waiver to return in 6 months with a new job.In the 4 weeks she was in the division she grew to love and respect everyone. Asthe first rpoc of the division she kind of feels that she has let them down,but keeping up with accomplishment is helping her to heal. I hope you enjoy PIR and if at all possible let us know how everything went ....Thank you in advance,momajm
