Default Visitations and Passes?

I dont know if this is the right place to post this...

My cousin and 'bf' are in AIT in Fort Sam Houston. How do visitations and passes work? My cousin is in the National Guard, so he comes home after AIT. But my 'bf' goes to airborne school for two weeks in GA after. Im not sure what he does after that- if he can go home or if he goes straight to his first stationing! So Im curious how visitations work... whether hes in AIT or on another post or in OCS. Suggestions?

After Airborne school he will most likely have an opportunity to take some leave. That will be up to him and his commander since he won't have that much leave earned. Once he is at his permanent duty station, you can visit him whenever, just keep in mind his work schedule and he may not always have time off. But typically the duty day is from 0630-1700 (5 p.m). Now keep in mind training schedules and other things so he may be home later or not at all.

visitation sounds like he is in a penitentiary lol. anyway, he should know his duty station before he goes to Airborne. It will be TDY en route to his new duty station. Fort Same is usually medical MOSes so he should have weekends off during AIT He should know this information and be providing it to you if he wants.

In Airborne, the junior enlisted are micromanaged and the officers have more freedom when training is up for the day. Just an FYI.

when i went to visit my fella, i was allowed to actually stay with him in his barracks. (sp)
so there was no need for a hotel or anything like that. just make sure that you have a valid ID and if you are going to be driving (if he is stationed close enough) make sure you have a recent copy of your ins. card, they will check all of these things when you are being processed for your pass.
