  • 4th of July details?

    Hi, I'm trying to visit my soldier at fort lee (VA) for the 4th of July but I am unsure of how holidays are handled. I know the 4th of July is on a Wednesday this year and I am trying to figure out how long I should stay (will he be off Wednesday through Sunday? Or just for the 4th?) He will be in AIT for 3 weeks by the time the 4th comes around so I don't know how visiting works (will he be allowed to get a weekend pass or at least get off base or do I just have to go on base?) If I have to go on base, what are the rules/requirements of visitors to get through the gate?

    With the 4th being on a wednesday this year, that may not be the best time to visit him. Not if you want to actually get to spend time together anyways. If he is only 3 weeks into AIT he may not have many priviledges yet, it just depends on his unit.

      Is the base local to you or something? Because flying there would be a total waste IMO.

      For gate questions, you should call Fort Lee themselves.
