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.
Hey! I was just going to suggest that you post on the Ship 5 page, asking about how they travel after being discharged. Hoping that you get some info on that site about the process. You can also go on the NEW MOMS STOP HERE group and message "Craig" on there...panel of advisors at the top. Being retired Navy, and having a son/nephew in, he may be able to help you too. Prayers....
Hoping that it works out...when they diagnose asthma, they usually can't keep them. This is true in all of the military branches...have a friend dismissed from the Marines after being at bc for several weeks. So hoping this works out for your son though...I have seen more dismissed for asthma on this site than for any other reason.
OMG as the kids say your name is Mary Ann too, that is too funny.
I send 1 letter today I am about to write another one right now, since it is so quiet in the office, and I will be doing some heavy name checking I think these boys need to hang together in this, don't you think.
I'm grateful our son is 26 years old all ready, he might have less of of a problem in BC than some of the real young ones.
Hi! Yes our boys are together, although it's my boyfriend not my son :) This site is such a great place to be able to connect with other people who have loved ones with ours! It's great for us back home to be able to have a support team!
