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.

Oh bless her heart...I know that is hard. We have a chocolate lab and Michael constantly played with him so I'm wondering what the heck he is thinking...I'm just anxious now to get the letter so we can make our plans for graduation. Are you guys going to be able to make it to graduation?
Yep, our youngest (14) said last night he was going to 'use' a few things of Michael's since he was gone...LOL...I think he wants to lay claim on a cool pocket knife. I've got to get in there and put several things away before he get to them. :) I think it hit our 18 year old when he came home last night. He just said it was so weird not to talk to Michael before bed to see who was going to lock everything up and turn the lights out. (My guys have been night owls this summer). So glad you have your hubby for support...it would be really hard to do this alone. Although I do have to say every time the phone has rung today I have jumped...I'm sure that will get better as the days roll on.
Doing pretty good...I think I cried twice too...I had to run something up to our church and started crying with the preacher. LOL :) Although I got a nice surprise when I called our insurance agent to take his vehicle off the policy...$150/month savings! I keep going in his room with thoughts of cleaning it up but just can't do it yet. He's not the neatest kid so there's no telling what I'm going to find...I'm sure he's be neat by the end of the week though! We just keep saying 'wonder what he's doing now?'...so weird not to know! How is your hubby doing?
Too funny tsufish! My hubby is not feeling well (really bad cold and head congestion)...he left the room earlier and I thought he went to lay down. He came back out later on with a bald head! Since he's been in the sun his eyebrows are blond...my 18 year old laughed and said 'dad, you shaved your eyebrows too!' ...I did txt a pic of that to my son and he laughed!
Hang in there tsufish! He's do great! And if you want to keep those earrings in through BC, do it! :) My hubby shaved his head today in honor of our son (he looks for any excuse to shave his head since he knows I don't like it! LOL)...We'll just have to lean on each other...We've got to all stay strong for our kiddos! Still waiting for the call...we have both cell phones on the bed wondering which one he'll call. :)
I've done about the same thing...it's almost seemed like the day has just stood still...I have cried off and on all day. Folks keep calling to see how the day went and I can't even answer the phone. I know this will get easier but boy I didn't anticipate it being this hard to watch him go. :)
