Default Graduation Dates / Info?

Hidy,

Just wondering if anyone else has received info on Graduation dates yet? My son left for basic on Jan 6th so think we are looking around the 2nd or 3rd week in March for graduation. Supposedly packets have been mailed but we have yet to see anything and I've been unable to find anything on the unit webpage at Ft. Jackson.

Any ideas how to find out some info on this??? Airfare rates are climbing and the hotels seem to be filling up!!!

TIA for any help on this . . .

Probably only a few days ago he got out of the Reception Station & is now in his BCT class. Figure a good week or two before you get a form letter sent by him giving his complete mailing address. Then maybe a week or two to get the packet giving all of the graduation information.

My son went to Infantry basic at Ft. Benning 5 years ago & if memory serves that's about the right timetable that we experienced.
