Default Graduation FT Leonard Wood, Basic VS AIT

My son is graduating Jan 22nd from bootcamp , and the following day is going to his AIT school which is also at Ft. Leonard Wood.
So, he is thinking that we should come to the AIT graduation instead of the basic training, since he can't come home.
From what I read the Basic training was a bigger ceremony than AIT, but that was mostly forums from FT Benning. Any suggestions as to which one we should attend?
He is in E31st EN BN. if that makes a difference.

Thanks for any and all suggestions! GO ARMY!

BCT graduation is always more exciting then AIT graduation. If you want opinions, go to the BCT one, it's where most of the pomp and circumstance will happen. Most AIT graduations are done in a theater where graduates line up and cross a stage. BCT is usually on a parade field (weather permitting) with color guard, pass and review and all the excitement. Just my thoughts.
