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.
Most of our group got the mid-term calls today; unfortunately - I did not......not sure why or what that means, but nothing I can do but hope for another chance tomorrow and be thankful I got a letter today.
Hey! Seems my SR is doing well; was surprised that things were very different than he had been led to believe or had heard. Not all bad, just different. Was hoping to get to "the fun stuff" this last week - swimming, etc. He said he had read his letter like 100 times and that when they said mail is like gold, they were not kidding. I assume that he had not at that point received all of my deluge of letters! lol - hope he continues to adjust, adapt and accept the new life changes! I know you are excited and counting down to PIR - can't wait to hear all about what your SR is doing - let us hear from her!!!
Hey!!! Thanks for the note....I know you are counting down! How exciting!!! I am still waiting on the first piece of mail from my SR. I saw where someone from his division had mailed to his mom and she received it today, so I am hopeful....keep your fingers crossed for us to get something...anything....this week! lol
How exciting!! I can't wait to start getting some news from my son. So far we are the 10 day mark and I am thinking maybe he hasn't started even getting my mail yet either. I started mailing him on Tues of this week and have sent a letter from me and one with notes from his party each day already. And his dad and Gram have sent one. He should be set once the mail starts getting distributed!
So PIR is not quite so far away for you all.....4/13 huh? Are you on the countdown? We are already and not nearly so far in as you and your SR.
Good to hear from you - will let you know when I am lucky enough to get a letter! Talk to you soon,
