  • What to wear...BCT graduation

    DS is graduating basics soon. So proud of him. I posted awhile back when he first started but he has hung in there and is absolutely loving every minute. He is doing so well. Shot expert and is getting a special award. So excited for him in so many ways. So proud!
    Anyway, with graduation fast approaching. Planning the road trip, me, my mom(his Gma), my oldest DD, and his best friend(she's a girl), this should be a fun road trip....but what do we plan to wear to graduation. Is this a Sunday best type thing or more casual jeans and nice shirt type thing? And what else can we expect that day. He is graduating from FLW, MO.
    Thanks y'all. This forum has been great.

    Oh, and just a funny. Dad sent him an empty beer bottle. He said DS laughed...Pvts. cried. lol

    Plan now

    Make your hotel reservations NOW...The little town outside the gate has limited rooms.

    Attire I have seen at graduation ranges from casual (and too casual) to Sunday best...pretty much your choice, I recommend you lean towards the Sunday best...

    He will be in his dress greens, and you will all probably want to get your picture with him...

    And check the weather forecast!

    My basic graduation was around the end of October...Winter came early, it was freezing outside! They had to move the ceremony indoors--

        Could be a coin. We had a country bumpkin bet the CO that he would shoot 40/40...and he did. Was just a small recognition at regular company formation though. Then back to business as usual.

          They recognized the guys with the highest BRM scores at my graduation. It could be a poorly written sentence and it is an award for something else.

              You gotta love all the haters! When I was in the Corps I was meritorious promoted to Corporal and everybody was like it was fixed, and you're still a "boot"....LOL. I made NCO about 18 months ahead of my peers I was proud.
