Default Fort Benning Graduation Information

Hi,

My boyfriend is at basic training in Fort Benning this summer. He arrived there on May 13 for processing and started basic on May 19 (one day late because processing went long, apparently?). Does anyone by chance know the graduation date? Also, does anyone have any general information about graduation at Fort Benning?

Thanks

It depends on if he is there for just basic (192) , or is 11X infantry there for OSUT (198). If you know his company number, you can find it here [URL="https://www.benning.army.mil/192d/content/GraduationDates.htm"]https://www.benning.army.mil/192d/content/GraduationDates.htm[/URL]
or here [URL="https://www.benning.army.mil/198th/content/GeneralInfo/GradDates.htm"]https://www.benning.army.mil/198th/content/GeneralInfo/GradDates.htm[/URL]

just scroll down unril you find his company/start date

Welcome to the forums and respect to your boyfriend.

I hope you will have learned the special "Crazy chicken dance" in time

Is he there for OSUT, or just BCT? It depends on his MOS (job). If he is there for BCT and then going elsewhere for his job training, he will be in the 192nd. [URL="https://www.benning.army.mil/192d/"]https://www.benning.army.mil/192d/[/URL]
The 198th is the 11X (Infantry) OSUT and is 14+ weeks.

You won't get a lot of contact at first, but that slowly increases. Once you have his company number, you can look up his grad date on Ft Benning's site. [URL="https://www.benning.army.mil/192d/content/GraduationDates.htm"]here for 192nd[/URL] [URL="https://www.benning.army.mil/198th/content/GeneralInfo/GradDates.htm"]or here for 198th[/URL]

Is he 11X? The 198th is OSUT for Infantry. If not, then he is at BCT and would be in the [URL="https://www.benning.army.mil/192d/content/grad_dates.htm"]192nd (here)[/URL].

Take a few minutes to look around Benning's site, there's some interesting info. If he is Infantry, there is a training schedule to the left you can click on that gives decriptions and pictures of their traiing.
