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.

"Hi, yes he called one more time but the call dropped so it was a pretty short one. I'm not sure why you didn't get one that day as they usually get them as an entire division from what I understand. My SR will stay in GL after bootcamp so…"

Hi, yes he called one more time but the call dropped so it was a pretty short one. I'm not sure why you didn't get one that day as they usually get them as an entire division from what I understand. My SR will stay in GL after bootcamp so I'm not sure if he'll have to repeat ROM or not. This is a whole new world for our family and I'm learning as we go. And yes....holidays just didn't see 'right' without him here!
Cheja - I posted a reply to your discussion. A lot is different with COVID than when you were last through this from your Alumni PIR - My son's was in Aug of 2017 and he is also a Nuke.
I would connect again in the BC Mom group. Since you are already a member we don't know who is back for a 2nd or 3rd go around. It has been taking the form letter 4 -5 weeks to arrive but if you have his ship and div # you should be able to write to him anyway.
CheriH....r, I see you have changed your Username so that it no longer contains your full name; you also need to change the URL to this page. Make change 2 at the bottom of OPSEC and PERSEC (Making Changes to Your Profile) (clickable link) to take care of that. (If you are using a Smart phone, you will need to switch to Desktop View to make this change.)
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, 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 you or your future Sailor.
