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.

Divisions285and 286are brother divisions and train together and will haveBattle Stations-21 (BST)together, so lookfor others with loved ones in either division. Write to your recruit and askwhenBattle Stations-21 (BST)will be so you willknow when to expect the "I'm a Sailor!" call.
Honestly, it has been rough. The not being able to talk to him part and the unknown is so hard for a Mom for sure. I received his box today. It is literally sitting on my table unopened. I just can't yet. I don't want him to know how hard it is for me because I know it is harder for him. I need advice on how to write him letters without letting him know that! :)
If you would like information on your recruit’s rating (job/occupational specialty) or field, then let me know the rating or field. There are groups for most specialties and/or "A" Schools and knowing that will help you to better plan for PIR weekend.
