My Grandson is scheduled to graduate Boot Camp Feb 10, 2017. He informed his Mother that on Grad Day he wouldn't be able to leave the Depot until 1500. I thought this odd since I assumed he could depart for his 10 day leave after graduating and getting his gear. Any info on this topic is appreciated

Thank you again!

Hi. Thank you!  My son is a recruit with Hotel Company Platoon 2161, Graduation March 10.  Any help you can provide to direct me to information or groups regarding his placement would be most appreciated.  This has been a wonderful resource so far.  Thanks, everyone!

Our security

With the recent proliferation of threats to America and Americans, I thought this would be a good time to discuss safety, also known as Operational Security, or “OPSEC”.
