Navy Recruit Graduation: Aug. 8, 2014

Welcome to Navy Live blog coverage of Recruit Training Command’s graduation, Pass-In Review. It is a formal military ceremony that honors a Sailor’s hard work and dedication to a new way of life. Pass-In-Review also ties together the future of the Navy with our long-held naval traditions and customs.

Read how Recruit Training Command transforms civilians into Sailors – 39,000 of them each year.

The live video from the Navy’s only boot camp at Great Lakes, Ill., is scheduled to begin 8:45 a.m. CDT August 8.

Congratulations Sailors and welcome aboard to the newest members of our Navy family!
