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.
DCM Mom, Thank you so much.. I too was panning this site for answers and I found some Seasoned Sailor Moms and some New Sailor Moms and this site has really helped me to "kinda" relax and settle my nerves...But we are Moms and we will always have that sense of concern whaling up in us....lol Yes we will get through this by the Grace of God and I wish I could say that I will see you at Graduation but I doubt if we get to meet each other unless by Divine Appointment... Take care, Keep Praying, Keep the letters rolling, Keep Watching the Mailbox, Keep your Ears Open for the Phone Calls and Congrats on Graduation!!!
DCM-Mom, Hi I am a new Navy Mom... My daughter left on March 1st and she is scheduled to graduate on April 30th. It has been a challenge for us (parents), but I believe it was a great move for her. This is an endeavor that she chose and we discussed it and support 100%. I think this is a great Idea about the screen shot of the FB Page... I think I will do that in her next letter..Thanks.
