You must save the form letter you get from your SR. It will have important information on it including the password so you can download the parking pass when it's time to go to PIR. Even if you rent a vehicle to drive to PIR from your hotel, you will need the parking pass. SAVE THAT FORM LETTER!

That is all...stand down

From RTC:

Friends and Family of RTC,

Recently RTC changed security protocols in order to ensure the safety and security of our Sailors, recruits, and visitors. In doing so we have implemented a new security form for use in screening all guests who will be attending the ceremony.

To help eliminate any questions about filling out the form and where to return the form, we first encourage everyone to visit our website and review the graduation page or look for answers on our FAQ pages. It is important to remember that these forms MUST be filled out and returned to your recruit in the time indicated on the form and on our website. Again, these forms need to be returned to YOUR RECRUIT. Do not return these forms to Public Affairs, Events, Security, Admin, or any other department at RTC.

The mailing address for your recruit will be delivered to you by your recruit in the initial correspondence you receive from them after they arrive at RTC.

Please remember, it is the recruit’s responsibility to send this initial correspondence to whomever they choose and it is the recruit’s responsibility to keep their families informed on their progress as well as choosing who they want to attend their graduation ceremony. Again, please send your security form to your recruit.

Thank you,

RTC Public Affairs

RTC understands the issue with ID's and the changes made earlier this year- they realize that folks from all over the US come to RTC for PIR and the PAO let me know that they are accepting all VALID state ID's-

Comment by Stephen Phillips on June 29, 2017 at 10:54am

Thank you Matthew and Paul for your responses!  Hopefully there will be no issues with our ID's!

Comment by NavyDads Admin (Paul) on June 29, 2017 at 10:44am

As of Feb 16: 

There have been some questions regarding access to RTC for PIR in light of the restrictions on state ID's......this response just in from RTC: "We still accept all state's IDs".

Comment by Matthew on June 29, 2017 at 10:20am

You will need your passport if your state ID is not recognized.  If you don't have a passport then you better call ahead and check on what to do.  My wife and I were there in Jan for PIR.  Our state was on the list also and they didn't say anything to us, but we had our passports along just in case.

Hello everyone!  I am new to the site and to being a proud Navy dad, my son is in boot camp now and will graduate on July 28th, 2017.  I have read the article on State ID's and how some are not accepted.  Well, we are from Missouri and that state is on the list.  What do I need to do for PIR? Thanks for any help on this!

Good Afternoon everyone I just wanted you to know what a awesome time we had during our sons PIR  on 2/10/17. Everyone should attend Sarge meet and and greet the night before the PIR. Great informations enjoyed meeting the other parents on the ship. I was so proud to watch all these young men and women march into Mid-Way Hall. Thank you and GOD BLESS all of our service men and women. GO NAVY

Greetings all, my son is scheduled to graduate from boot camp on 3/10 and the whole thing finally came down on me today like a ton of bricks. I was reading through some of the blogs and other forums this morning looking for info on PIR week and couldn't keep it together; my first cry since my son left in January. I guess we all have different ways of dealing with the loss. It's helping me to know that with him serving in honor for our country that those memories of his childhood are becoming more and more vivid and my love for more son has only grown. Before today I think I thought of myself as just a guide for his success not realizing how much I miss his voice, smile, energy and strength. Although proud and encouraging, I've finally gotten a bit selfish and started to reminisce. Those memories that have now become so vivid are just flooding me. I've been writing him and he back; we miss each other sorely. First snow season without him. Kind of lost on the mountain without him there.

My wife and I are flying out to Chicago this Wednesday and are hoping for the "I'm a sailor" phone call soon. Hopefully before we leave. He is on ship 14 division 90 so I think that means his group goes lastly. My wife and I think he's going through it as I write this!

Gods speed Brendan!

To amplify on Jim's comment- to paraphrase, it takes a village to run a website!!!!  You have several other admins that provide an essential role in keeping NavyDads alive and running!  Thanks to all for your tireless efforts in keeping NavyDads moving forward and being one of the premier Military support sites around.

We also couldn't survive without our other administrators as well!
