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.
Hello Navy Moms! Iam also one of you Navy Moms of a Sailor in A school...still trying to connect with others NavyMoms of Sailor in military school after BC/&successfully officially called U.S.N.sailors + Navy Nuke school intense schooling...
I finally gave up and started over again. I did everything you suggested I do and nothing would work. I kept getting the same error message. I have the proper Information on my page now but lost all my groups and friends so have to start over again unless you know of some way I can retrieve what I had. I do appreciate all the time you spent trying to help me straighten out my page but there was a glitch I couldn't seem to correct.
Can any one tell me how long the 'nukes' get with their families after BC graduation?
My son will b headed to SC. I'm trying to make travel plans...but he has been gone 2 weeks and form letter still not arrived?
I just joined the site and tried to post a comment, but wasn't able to do it. Clicking on Add Comment in the Comments thread did not cause any actions. I tried two different browsers. Is there a restriction on my account or a waiting period? I hope I'll be able to add this comment.
Clockard and T-Lynn, we are so sorry that this took place. There was an accidental deletion of a number of members in error during this transition phase, and while the info as you indicated cannot be retrieved, please know that the deletions have ended for now and special care is being taken. We have privately messaged with you regarding this issue. Again, we apologize and are deeply appreciative of all you have done and continue to do for our members.
I don't know who is deciding which members get deleted, but someone screwed up big time.
I just had to re-join Navy for Moms and try to find my groups. Aaarrrggghhhh!!! All my content, pictures, everything - GONE. I post on one group or another at least weekly. In what universe does that qualify as inactive? Recently I had been posting on my groups that everyone needed to post something if they wanted to stay active. How ironic is that!
I also just re-joined one of the groups I created so now I can post there, but I no longer have admin privileges on that group and neither does anyone else!
I had created a private group which I now cannot access! Not sure if my friends there will be able to "invite" me to join my group again.
When I joined Navy for Moms (the first time!) there were about 2,000 members. Yes, it was MANY years ago. I have spent a vast amount of time and energy sharing and helping others, and I've made some really good friends. To be treated this way now is totally disrespectful. When I tried to log in this morning for my weekly catch up with my friends and saw that I no longer had an account, I felt like I'd been punched in the gut.
I apologize for the rant, but I really am furious about this. Is there any way my content can be restored? How about my admin access to my groups? A little help here, please.
I am T-Lynn on the japan moms site and on the site Our Place.
For some reason some moms are being deleted from Navy For Moms!!!!!
I know of two from Japan moms and one from Our Place.
Hey the ones deleted have been here since the beginning of Navy Moms. this Navy for Mos IS our 'safe place" ( to coin a term).
What's happening? WE don't go to fb where all can see - we are here safe and with other MOMS, Wives, Aunts, etc that NEED because we are with all who know how we feel and can come here to complain - cry without someone shaking a finger at us.
