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.
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.

As I'm sure you know, July adoption is the FIRST time we have ever been allowed to adopt a Sub. For just this month, we will be doing a few things differently. New information has just been posted on page and shipping address will be posted soon in "MAS We Ship Love."
Thanks for joining us and hope to talk to you soon! Pat
Hi "robert's mom," and welcome to the USS Alabama! I'm the administrator for the group, so if you have any questions, please ask. My son is a Nuke MM serving on the Blue crew. He's been in for 5 years this autumn.
How fortunate that you're in Anaheim... you're within (a LONG) driving distance! We're in Indianapolis, so our visits to Bremerton are few and far between :-( But, we acquired a lovely daughter-in-law last November, so she keeps us in touch :-)
Be sure to make a "howdy" post, so the other 'Bama moms will speak up and get to know you. Jump in with any questions or comments you may have. I think you'll find we're a nice bunch of folks and always willing to lend an ear to listen or a shoulder to cry on. Hugs! k.
