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 am a mom that is very supportive of my boys. I have one in the Marines and now one that will go off to bootcamp for the United States Navy. To say the least we are a house divided, but only by branch.. we are very proud and fly each flag proud.
I did get your response. I called Brewster yesterday for Jarrett's address. Letters in the mail now!
Jarrett and Colton have some aquaintances in commom - not surprise but kind of neat.
Jarrett is in Ship 09, Div. 021. What about Colton? Jarrett said when they were at the airport he and your son gave the other Navy recruit a hard time (all in fun!). Called him "grandpa" because he's 31. I got a chuckle out of that.
Hey, do you have any idea when their PIR is? I heard it will NOT be 12/23 which is what I calculated. Not only that, we spend $1,300 on plane tickets. Crap! I suppose I will wait on that form letter for exact date.
When we spoke the other day at the the recruiters office, I thought you looked familiar. Are you from Rogers? Feel free to txt me - 787-3897
Take care and praying for your kid and your family.
