Graduation?????

My son arrives for boot on 6/1/06. I will attend his graduation and he will come home with us. When is graduation? How long after graduation before I get him? How do I find out this stuff? Thanks to anyone who can help me.

my husband is at fort knox right now for boot camp. his was 16 weeks because they compacted his training with boot camp. his graduation is april 27 and they said he will out-process within an hour. there is a family day between boot camp and the AIT btw.

Once he is assigned to a training company (after about a week) he will be able to send you his mailing address. He will be in either the A, B, C, D, or E company. You can then go to this site …army.mil/school/1atb/246/gradSchedule.htm to learn his grad date. Be aware that there is a family day the day before in which you can 'have' him for about 7 hours. All this will be detailed in a letter they will send you. Our letter stated that they were NOT allowed to travel with families and were required to take military transport to their next destination, but perhaps things are different for different enlistees. In any case, the site listed above will have links to other Ft. Knox pages which will have contact information for the battalion. The office of the chief master sergeant should be able to give you specific info for your son. Our son (an Eagle Scout) finishes on June 1 and we look fwd to seeing him. He said it was much harder than he thought it would be, and he thought it would be hard. Tell your son to BE PREPARED! I thought this site was very helpful: …about.com/od/armyjoin/l/aaarmybasic1.htm

best of luck

I have a very close friend that is in the B group, (he also started June 1) and he graduates September 22, 2006. Family Day starts August 4 at 6pm and goes through Sunday the 6th at 6pm. I didnt know how long it takes to out-process, but it looks like an hour. That is awesome!!!

you should get to see him for a few hours after graduation or he may get to cme home for a few days depending on how his inf. run's and AIT last 2 month's. that is how much my brother's lasted as long as they are getting ahead and doing what they are told it is just like college so dont sweat it and yo can keep in contact with them after 6:00 and you can find all of this out by going to his fort's web site.
