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.
I will watch for you and your family. We will also have our daughter and her husband with us. We have been empty-nesters for several years, as well. We haven't gotten our "I'm a Sailor" call yet. Have you?
Yes, I am taking paper/pen to PIR, too. We could be facebook friends. That would be nice. But I don't discuss any Navy business on facebook. Just recipes and fun stuff. At the PIR I will be wearing a round pin that I made. It has the image that you see on my NFM page (the trees and lavender groundcover) and it says "Sunny" on it. By the way, that's not my real name. I'll tell you when I meet you. How will I recognize you? I can tell by your comment about his letter that you're missing your son! Is this his first time away from home? They are probably doing Battle Stations today. Praying for their strength and alertness! We are leaving Tue morning to drive up there, so you won't hear from me after that. I don't have internet on my cellphone.
I ordered four ribbons for graduation and they sent me a message to share with our graduating group.

What is a PIR Ribbon?
PIR ribbons are worn by family and friends during the “meet and greet” and at the Pass In Review (PIR) ceremony. It’s a fun way to show support and pride for your sailor and other sailors in their division.
I am doing pretty well... I wish it were Thursday though! I have a gem and feel really blessed to have such an incredible man. He really is selfless and making the effort to write me no matter what. He said that it will be tough and letters may be shorter but just another challenge he will have to endure. I do have a question, for the meet and greet, do I have to buy a ticket or register. I was planning on going...
