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.

Hi, I see that you have received a form letter stating PIR is 03/29/2013 for Division 129. The RTC's website, http://www.bootcamp.navy.mil/upcoming_grads.asp, indicates PIR is 03/22/2013. I suggest that you write to your SR and ask about that. It is possible that the brother divisions, Divisions 129/130, will need to send out new form letters with a different password. Also email the PAO at email@example.com and let them know that your form letter does not agree with the RTC website. Join the group, PIR 03/22/2013 TG 19 - 11 Divisions (121-130 and 919), to connect with others with loved ones training with your SR. Know that Divisions 129 and 130 are brother divisions and train together and will have Battle Stations-21 together, so look for others with loved ones in either division. There is a discussion within that group for the two divisions.
You may also want to join, or at least check out, Boot Camp Moms (and loved ones), PIR Reference Information, and New Members Stop Here. There will be a lot of great information and support for you in those groups as well as in the PIR group. Be sure to check out the Pages (found under the pictures of the Members) and Discussions within the groups. Take care and blessings to you and yours.
