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 served in the US Navy a long time ago as you can see by my photo above. I was fresh out of Bootcamp and in School in San Diego.. .lets just say the Disco Era had not even started yet. I am an Honorably Discharged, Partially disabled US Navy Veteran. The Navy doesnt like it when I talk about what I did so.. all I can say is .. "I served Honorably".
What many of you dont know is that I came to this site to bust a Poser who was pretending to be a Navy SEAL LtCdr. I worked with the Site Admin to try to figure out who/what/where this guys is. He is still being investigated and we are trying to track him down. For those of you who helped me try to "Out" this poser, I thank you very much. SEAL Authenticators are onto this guy "Greg" and hopefully can put some closure to the case with an FBI prosecution under the Stolen Valor Act of 2005.
