My fiancee is currently at Ft. Jackson in the 1-13th Inf Regt. This is the first time apart from her but I do suppose others are right that we get trained right along with them in the process...Anyone else have someone currently going through BCT that will graduate in May?

My hub graduates April 17th then goes to Ft Rucker for AIT. We definatly do get trained right along with them! I've learned so much since he's been gone, and we've definatly grown from this. my hub is the 3-13th b company.

Family Day & Graduation March 19 &20
 
My son graduates Friday. Does anyone know much about what goes on at Family Day Thursday? I understand they cannot leave the base at Ft. Jackson. After the ceramony what will we do there? Tour the base I assume. Are there places to eat lunch on base? I understand there's a buffet dinner somewhere? Any wisdom? Anyone been through this before?
Thanks.

the way I see it. from the info sent to me, ( and my 2 daughters are coming to see their daddy too), there is putt putt, video arcade, billards, bowling, museum, PX, a couple of dining places.
I went to Ft. Jackson website and in the left column, it was a link to activities or such, and then clicked on MWR, under the onbase housings, they have a link to and activities Map. I printed one off for myself.
Hope this helps. I am sure that a buffet dinner is just that, but it with the rest of the Platoon's families and everyone is "on base".

congrats on your son.

I am curiouse as well as to what happens after the ceremony, because I will be escorting my husband to his AIT location at which he is to check in by 6pm the very next day. We'll be driving alll the way to Alabama so I hope that him and I can leave as soon as we can. does any one know about that?? Also am i aloud to visit him when he's in AIT? He'll only be there for 9 or 10 weeks.

Yes, the Undertakers...... Have you gotten any letters/calls from her? I've only gotten one letter since he's been gone. He said he' doing well.....the drill sargeants aren't so bad....but, said there's a lot of jack*sses who don't listen, so they're getting smoked alot.

Do you know anything about graduation? The website says its May 29th, but I thought it would be the 15th, which would be after the 9 wks.

Where are you from, and are you going to her graduation? I'm in Pennsylvania....

Wyndham C 03-18-2009 07:54 PM

I have received six letters so far...They pretty much relay the same thing, there's some knuckleheads mucking about and consequently they've been smoked...Other than that, it appears things are well...I haven't had a phone call since she was in reception so, alas...Perhaps this Sunday?

Graduation is May 15th, I will know for sure tomorrow but I will be there.

I am in Allentown, PA.
