Navy Recruit Graduation: Feb. 26, 2016

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.

On Aug. 18, 2015, Secretary of the Navy Ray Mabus announced the establishment of a Recruit Honor Graduate Ribbon for superior performance during the Navy’s basic military training, held at Naval Station Great Lakes, Illinois.

The live video from the Navy’s only boot camp at Great Lakes, Ill.is scheduled to begin 8:45 a.m. CDT Feb. 26.

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