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.
When did your daughter arrive in Norfolk? My son is moving from Great Lakes to Norfolk in two weeks for his C school. Was she able to find her sponsor? My son is still trying to locate his. It is such a helpless feeling, isnt it?

Thats a great question.I do wonder how many brave young women we might have in all divisions.You should be very proud of her.How old is your daughter?I can't wait to meet you and your daughter and thank you all for service (them) and support (you).Of course I will probably be a big blubbering idiot when we all meet and at PIR especially.Yes I'm a big crier.I miss my son so so much, I have been hoping all week for a letter and have gotten nothing.Frustrating!!!!!!!maybe today,I hope.Take care and have a great day.
