Default What Is Grad Day (PIR) Liberty?

Rules for Recruits on Liberty
LIBERTY INFORMATION
Liberty is ?time off? from the daily routine. Graduating Sailors will be granted liberty to go off-base during the day with their families. Graduating Sailors may not smoke, drive, or consume alcoholic beverages while on liberty.

Graduating Sailors must stay within a 50-mile radius of RTC.

Graduating Sailors must remain in their complete uniform while on liberty. If they are engaging in physical activity or swimming, they must be in authorized PT gear.

Liberty expires at 2100 in the Sailor's berthing compartment, on Friday and Saturday evenings, and 2000 on Sunday evening.
No overnight liberty is authorized.

Families my pick-up and drop-off graduating Sailors for liberty from the designated site at MCPON Hall. Due to security checks and transit time, please allow ample time for graduating Sailors to walk back to their assigned ship prior to the end of liberty.

Graduating Sailors departing RTC for follow-on training the same day as graduation or in a duty status will be granted limited on-base liberty.

Graduating Sailors receive an in-depth liberty briefing prior to their graduation day.

No alcohol...Supposed to be no smoking as well, but it seems like that one isn't followed as much...Definitely no alcohol though, if they suspect you have been drinking, they will send you to medical to have a test done...Definitely not worth it...If you have gone 8 weeks without it, you can wait an extra week or two until your training command allows it.

I heard from one sailor that recruits actually like going to the dentist because you can sleep while you're in the chair, lol.

I can see how that would be an upside haha. i heard once you get your wisdom teeth pulled (if needed) you get a couple days to just rest so i'm sure a lot of people look forward to that despite the pain.

Anyone know if we're allowed to go to Chicago? It's only 37 miles from RTC according to google maps so we should be ok, right?

Yes, you can. We took the train.
You'll be done with PIR by noon, or closer to 3 if youre moving across the street for A School.

As long as you are not a grad n go to San Antonio, then you will be able to go...Take the train that is right next to base...It's cheaper, no traffic to deal with, and parking is impossible in Chicago...If you don't leave until Sunday, Saturday would be the best time to go because you get more liberty time.

Doing without tobacco for 9 weeks would seem to me a real good opportunity to start doing without it forever. You will stay healthier, age better, and you can save all the money you would have spent on it to buy yourself something real nice in a few years.

I agree. I never understood why people go back to tobacco after 9+ weeks to break the addiction.

Understanding there are no definite answers until they get their orders, are there any general guidelines on what to expect for liberty and flying out after a PIR when there's a federal holiday on Monday?

For example, my daughter's PIR is Friday 9 Nov. Monday the 12th is the observed federal holiday for Veterans Day. Is she still likely to fly out on the 10th, or might the federal holiday mean a different fly date for her? And if so, might she have liberty that Saturday?

Knowing the navy and how they try to find flights they can fill up with several new sailors...that one might not be very full...my guess would be they very well could ship her then.

So it turned out she did not get an extra day of liberty. They flew out today (Saturday), per usual.

In fact, the group that was flying to Pensacola on the 1220 flight left Great Lakes for Midway at 0030. Yikes! Daughter called us around 0230 and told us where they'd be. We met her in the ticketing area around 0430 and got a gate pass so we got to spend the morning with her until she had to board.

It was absolutely wonderful to be with her again and see what a fine sailor she's become.

I believe it is in uniform when in view of the public. If you are going to a hotel room, who is to say "intimate"time can't take place... I'm sure that is a common activity for graduates. haha.

Yep, they just care when you're in public view.

No. You'll get Friday, and then get on the bus for the airport between 0100 and 0600 Saturday morning.
