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.
It was so nice to meet you at RTC last week. Thank you so much for making sure that happened. I am sorry I wasn't able to make the meet and greet. Please do find me on FB Babyryin@msn.com first name is Mandy.

FYI, that little beep you hear is for the chat room. To turn it off, go to the lower right corner and click on the green dot. It drove me NUTS, until I figured it out!
Yep, you were write. He is ship 11 as well. I love having this. This is the first time I have felt like I know something... not that knowing your son is with my husband really gives me any information but still! It helps!
Maybe I am wrong on ship. I am trying to decipher from his address. I know it is Division 186. I have not gotten the official letter yet. I am just waiting anxious and hoping he is okay.... it is quite tiring.
Hey! Thanks so much for taking over Lisa's group. It is really fun to "run" a group...but challenging! I can see you are up for the challenge though by how quickly you have "set up" the post board. Love the pik, countdown clock, and weather widget. Just add your name/intro to the top so others know that you are in charge (you have powers to delete comments and obviously add things to the page). You can just add to Lisa's paragraph at the top. You have lots of veterans on here to help you all. So great to see Lee Ann jumping on to help. She is a "new" veteran and has "fresh" info! Jessica and I are oldie goldies...both of our sons PIRed in Jan/Feb 2010.
Please let us know if you have any questions! I am on most daytimes...sometimes nights. Jessica is on early morning and evenings/weekends. She is excellent leading all along. Janlee is great too...and of course Lala! Betsy jumps in as well when time allows (she is in the middle of a move out of state). So we are all here to help!
