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.
I saw your post on the MM page, and noticed that you were not on the sub page...wanted to suggest that you look into the sub group page. It is one of the larger groups and has a lot of information located on the page.
My husband's sister and brother in law were able to go to the graduation today. They said it was really nice. I just don't understand the Navy. Why keep punishing the class when the SR that caused the problem was set back to the beginning. Plus quite a few of the sailors are on their way to their base. If you are staying on at Groton you don't get priveleges again until Tuesday? My SR is in STS- Sonar. Their BESS coin, I thought looked neat. Never had anything like that in the Air Force.
hello..im sooo happy you going to see your bf...i know what u feeling ..but it will be ok..we love our sr ..n missed them soooo much...im here still waiting for my son to call me to let me know he pass the swim test n then off to bs with another div..his pir was 10.21.11..but i guess he is in the fit program..for now til he passes..im hopeful i get a call this wk..but good luck n have a great time,,i wish u the best!!!,,:)
My son is also an MM...I was reading your question on the MM page in ref to C school.
Is he going in as a Nuke MM or an MM? I saw where he has volunteered for sub? If he is sub, then he will be attending school in Groton, CT if he is not Nuke. If he is Nuke, then he will not be at GL or Groton for school, but will go directly to Goose Creek, SC.
If you have any other questions, feel free to ask.
