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 so glad to at least have one other Mom on the Website in the same division. I know it is difficult for you because of the address situation if you want i will rely any infomation my son sends in his letters about the div to you in message form. Wouldn't want to get in trouble. If you want to give me his last name I can see if he know him . Sorry it took so long to accept you as a friend I am a little green in the area of FB and websites. I
Hi Mostele, you beat me to it. I was going to send you a friend request and then got preoccupied with other stuff here. Thank you!
To answer your question about PIR date, on the form letter in about the middle of page 2 it is handwritten under the section "RECRUIT GRADUATION". Your son's is probably Aug. 5 like almost everyone else who started around the same time but ya never can be too sure. I think his recruiter can give you that information if your sister can't. Hope that helps. If I knew your sister, I might just have to send her a (little) bonk on the head and wake her up to the importance of this stuff lol (totally for your sake, of course, friend)!
