  • OSUT graduation question

    Does infantry have graduation after the first ten weeks, or after the entire fourteen? My gf and family are trying to make tentative plans.

    Re: OSUT graduation question

    there is a ceremony after the 9 weeks of basic training, which is where you will have your 36+hour pass (CO's discretion), and then a large ceremony at the National Infantry Museum field after the AIT portion. Both are good ceremonies, but if they only have the money to come to one of them, I would say the final one, which includes the turning blue ceremony and the graduation after a short family day pass in between the 2 days. On the first one, a lot of guys will just grab a few buddies and get a hotel and eat a lot of pizza for the 2 days.. although a lot of them have their families come too, especially those with girlfriends. Personally, I would say to have them come to the final one, so you dont have to see them, and then say goodbye again for another 5 weeks or so, but thats just me.
