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.
Wife (married to my high school sweetheart who I met on a blind date when I was 15), Mom of two...my baby just got his assignment, new grandma (it's wonderful!), nurse. I love Jesus, my chihuahua and poker ( I know, weird...)! I'm a scrapbooker and I love to read.
Gosh, here I am again apologizing for my late response to you. Time has a terrible habit of getting away from me these days! I don't quite have the hang of attaching pix via N4M. If you'd like to send me your email address, I'll get those A School graduation pictures off to you right away. Hope your trip out to Corry Sta. was a good one. Isn't it amazing to actually see it with your own eyes?!
Hi Rorys mom! So sorry for the delay in getting back to you. I've been away and am just now getting caught up on my bills, emails, correspondence, you know how it goes. I haven't forgotten about sending you my pix of the graduation. I promise I'll get to it either today or tomorrow. I sure hope your son is in one of them! We didn't take a lot, but we did manage to get a few group pictures at the end of the ceremony. Hold on, I'll send them to you soon!
Hi! Thanks for message...but, when I clicked on the message I lost it. Hope you had a great weekend. I can only imagine how emotional it must've been for you. If you don't mind I'd like to call you but I lost your # w/ the message. So if you can give it to me again that would be great. Mine is 310.387.0307. Hope you are recovering from the weekend and the aftermath isn't too much of a let down after the big build up. I just printed out my parking pass and can't wait to see my son on 8/6!
Hi there! Thank you so much for the welcome! :D I can't tell you how much I WANT to be at the Meet and Greet! If I can possibly find a ride with someone from this wonderful group you had better believe I'll be there in half a heartbeat! It's just a matter of working up the nerve to ask lol
I finally recieved a letter from my son and he broke my heart. he said all 86 guys from ship 13 div 244 recieved letters at mail call except him. he said he had to fight back tears at bed time. the entire family has been writing and mailing letters but for some reason he hasnt gotten any. does anyone know how often letters are recieved and also mailed out? hopefully next mail call will be full of letters for him
