    Re: BCT Graduation Date?

    Soon after your son gets to his training unit you will get a packet in the mail that explains the details of graduation and family day. You will probably have far more information than him until he is a week or two out from graduation. They don't tell the soldier a whole lot about it before that. Then at a week or two before graduation they will have the soldiers call their families so that they can coordinate Family day and graduation day.

    I shipped on August 3rd a few years back (which was a Monday), and our graduation and Family day was on Thursday/Friday nearly 11wks Later (same general time frame). One question that affects that is how long your son is in the reception phase. I left on Monday and started BCT the next Monday. So one week Reception and then 10wks roughly of BCT.
