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.
No not yet! :( I am getting a little frustrated. I did get a letter today which was a nice surprise! This poor kid had his wisdom teeth taken out and has a bout of strep throat! He said he had what looked like a fungus in the back of his throat! Good news is the group is really starting to work together and the ROC had let up on them. I had no idea this would be so hard. I really miss my Son I am hoping I will be able to keep it together when he does call. Thanks for checking. :)
Just send me a friend request and I will send you the info for ordering the ribbons. You can also send me an email. Just be sure include your N4M name and PIR date. So I know who you are. My. Email address is: firstname.lastname@example.org thanks
Our Son's are in the same ship and div. waiting for a call. I got a letter and he said he would call on Sunday. No call. :( I read in your comments about your son folding. Does he have laundry duty?? If so my son is right beside him folding. LOL
