While there, complete your Profile so you can post and share photos and videos of your Sailor and share stories with other moms!

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 4/26/2022** Effective with the May 6, 2022 PIR 4 guests will be allowed. Still must be fully vaccinated to attend.
**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).
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.
**UPDATE 8/25/2022 - MASK MANDATE IS LIFTED. Vaccinations still required.
RESUMING LIVE PIR - 8/13/2021
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 see you have changed your Username, you may also need to change the URL to this page. If you do, make change 2 at the bottom of OPSEC and PERSEC (Making Changes to Your Profile) (clickable link) to take care of that. Also make change 3 while you are there so that this page is no longer open to EVERYONE (Anyone) with access to the web. There may be other changes you need to make as well (such as change 4 if your Sailor is pictured in your profile picture), so read and consider each of the changes. Another change that I recommend that is mentioned in change 1 is to change the ZIP code to one that is not easily associated with your Sailor.
I do have a facebook account, however, I shut it down because I don't know how to say "NO" to Farmville! (I am not my addiction.. lol!!) I'll reactivate it...I've sorta honed in and taken over my husbands facebook anyway. : - ))
Yes, I'm going to PIR and can't wait!!! I'm bringing my kids with me - we made reservations at the Homewood Suites. We booked a two bedroom suite - it was the only way to fit all of us!! (LOL!)
I don't know which is more unbelievable - the part where we leave in two weeks to watch Melissa graduate, or the part where she's actually been gone for nine weeks. The time felt like it just dragged, at first, and now it's time to head out to Great Lakes.
When Melissa left for BC, she was wanting to get into IT, but now she's trying to get into Nursing. She will be going to Pensacola for A-School and in her last letter informed me that she will be gone for 22 weeks instead of the 14 she was originally suppose to be gone for. Ahhh....the day in the life of a mom of a Sailor!!
I'm just SO proud of her!!! I wonder if Melissa and Christine know each other? It would be fun if they did. I hope I get the chance to meet you at PIR.
I'm not sure if this is getting to you, but I hope so! (I'm new at this website..still trying to find my way around.) I have a daughter who is also in Ship 12, Div. 347. Her name is Melissa. Her PIR is Oct. 26th and I can't wait! I didn't think it was possible to miss her so much. How are you holding up?
I see you recently joined the Moms of Daughters 2 group and I want to welcome you!! I'm glad you found us. So your daughter is in boot camp now? Come join the chat in our group - there is usually someone on every day. We are a friendly, caring group of moms who have daughters in all stages of Navy life - from newbies to those whose daughters have been in for several years - from officer to enlisted!!! We support all our sailor girls and each other as well. i have a daughter who enlisted in 08 and is out now but working as a contractor is the same command she served in. Her twin sister is starting her 10th week of Officer Candidate training, and a son is serving his 8th year and just reenlisted for 6 more!!! We look forward to getting to know you and your sailor!! Again, welcome aboard!!!!
