Red face "coming home" from bootcamp question...!!

Hi My boyfriend is in bootcamp right now and will graduate in Aug. he said he will be able to come home for a week before he goes back for the rest of his training in Virginia for 11 weeks... But now in his letters it makes it sound like he wont be coming home for a week after grad.! Do they usually come home for a week after grad.?? Is there any chance that he wouldn't come home?? Please give me all the info. on this! Thank you!

It is generally best to only post your question in ONE forum. You get better responces this way.

After graduating basic a soldier is shipped directly to his/her AIT location. When that soldier arrives there they are generally given a two-day weekend pass to spend with their family in the local area. I've never heard a soldier getting a week's leave right after basic training.
