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.
Have you tried sending a message to any of the Cincy mom's that were active on here 2008, 2009, 2010...Have you sent a message to Ohio mom's in general...I am 3 hours away from Cincy, almost on the Illinois border and work full time...so it is not likely that I will be able to be that involved. I was looking for specific activities for planning purposes. Check out the Indiana group plans for Navy Week in Indy.
Did you check with the mom that said she could not be there on Thurs, but would be interested in a weekend activity?
Will there be any other activities during Navy week that N4M are involved with? As a Cincy native and Navy Mom, I wanted to be involved...and with the Holiday weekend I might be able to work in some vacation time and be in Cincy to spend extra time with my family and my Navy family.
I just read your post on our Ky Navy Mom's page. I only live about a 2 hour drive from Cincinnati, so I would be able to attend a Navy Mom's breakfast during Navy week, but only if it could be on that Sat or Sun - July 30-31st because I would be at work during the week and couldn't make it during the week.
If you can schedule it on a Sat or Sun, then count me in. It sounds like a great opportunity to meet with other Navy moms. Keep me informed. My email is: email@example.com and my name is Lisa.
