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.

Yes, well there'll be prayers for a lot of people traveling a lot of different ways to meet up with that ship. :-) They have been working hard and as I'm sure your son is ready to come back state side, mine is too. Just continuing prayers for their safety on the trip home. This feels like countdown to PIR weekend. :-) That was fun too.
Sorry, I don't recognize your N4M name. I didn't notice that excel added up in the numbers when I placed a new name. It's a typo of sorts. The address should be CVN68 and 96620-2820 for Malcolm. Sorry to confuse you.
Yes, the link I had was just for USS Nimitz. I googled it, so that might be one way to find them. The pictures I found were on flickr.com so there's another place to look I don't know for fact, but assume that they'd have a "search" for the site. Sorry I didn't have the exact answer. Good luck on your search, if worst comes you can always have your sailor get copy from the media folks who took the pictures.
He is going to be a Machinist Mate. He did very well on his asvab test but failed his vision test. When he went to choose a job there wasnt much to choose from, so he delayed it by a day or two. The next time he went wasnt much better so he picked MM. I think he would like to try something else but he will make the best of whatever he does.
We are staying at the Ramada. I am looking forward to meeting a few of the N4M at the meet and greets. My son got "beat" for taking the blame for one of his buddies, but I dont know about any group beatings. I am sure the boys will have lots of boot camp memories!
I am planning to attend the meet and greets. We are staying at the Ramada.Where are you staying?
Every letter that we receive is filled with so much enthusiasm. It makes me feel so good about this decision to join. I hope his career is everything he wants it to be. The only bad thing is some sort of an infection in his knee, which he is treating with antibiotics. I don't know why he would get an infection.
good to know somebody else with a son in the same division! I think there are a few more on this site, if you get letters or calls, PLEASE let me know, and any info as to how their Division is doing would be SO appreciated!! I'll keep you posted as well! (just checked the mailbox, nothing today......
Just figured out how to look at comments left for me!! Ok, to change the way your name comes up when you comment, go to My Page (at the Top), click that, go to "Manage My Page"in the upper left, click that, and then you'll see "address" - add the Ship and DIV # after your user name, and click "save".. It wont let you use anything other than unmbers or lettter, and no spaces, at least I couldn't figure that out.
