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.
We are not sure either..but our son said he would call as soon as he knows. I hope to get a call today about his plans. He said he would not be told anything until he get to Texas. Our son is really looking forward to moving on but he is also sad about leaving Chicago and making new friends....very hard to always changing at a young age.
Yes..I am a Special Education teachers for 4th-5th- and 6th graders. My son is the one on the left....best friends are the other guys...they graduated 2 weeks before our son. What division was your son in?
Is this the group page for ship 12 div 184 I'm so computer stupid I have a hard time mauvering on this site. Please help me so I don't miss anything.
GOOD NEWS yes I'm yelling.I got a letter today from my son. It isn't really encouraging he is so depressed. having a hard time but. Says his chief is on his last boot camp and has decided to be mean. I know that's their job. It's hard when it's your son.
My son did leave on 3/16. he got to bc and checked in and called me around 11:30. I'm in the Denver area. This past weekend, we did go through and move my 17 year old son into my oldest son's bedroom, and my 15 year old we rearranged his room since he don't have to share with his brother anymore. It was fun for Justin, getting his own room, but very sobering knowing why he now has it. I am so proud of my sailor, I can't wait to go see him at bc graduation. Right now, I am just waiting for his Box and his address. I did get some envelopes to put my address and stamps on that I will send to him as soon as I get his address.
