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.
I understand your frustration,and your worry!! After his dr appt monday if they diagnose a rupture and deem surgery nessasary he will get a medic call home,At least my son did . the rtc stood right there and made him call me and his dad.I missed the call so had to hear it all on voicemail! keep your phone close on moday!! Im sure w/ you as his mom he is a great kid,the navy will want to keep him and fix him asap!
Hi there, yes it is 9 days and counting. I haven't heard from him when BS21 is, but from other postings, they are guessing Sunday. I'm just worried about his final PFA, his knee is really acting up, I just need him to suck up and pass, so he can do BS....he is soooooo ready for PIR and would be crushed if he is ASMO'd. I will keep ya posted once he gets up to A-school, and pass your son's name onto him at PIR. Your son and of course his wonderful family will be in my prayers and thoughts as well. Take care, Karen
Nice to meet you, tnpromised! I see that our boys are in the same division 285. :) Nerve wracking waiting for the phone call today. I'm carrying my cell and home land line phone with me to every room in the house. I'm constantly checking N4M today to see if anyone has posted a "phone call" from their sailor.
Your family looks amazing...I need to get pictures up of my son Nick. His PIR is 8/13/10, and will be in Groton before your son, so I will be sure to keep posting on how the transition goes. His name is Nick Ransom if you want to mention that to your son. We are from Annapolis Maryland. Thanks for your sons service, and to you too Mom, for getting him there.
