Schedules may vary, so check your Soldier’s battalion web page to verify Family Day and graduation times and locations.
The day before graduation (normally Thursday) is designated as "Family Day." Family Day activities begin at Hilton Field at 9 a.m. The battalion commander meets with family members and friends of graduating Soldiers to discuss the Soldier’s recent experiences and answer questions. Family and friends will also meet the unit's drill sergeants and observe demonstrations of Soldier skills.
Most importantly, you will meet - and spend time with your Soldier.
During the evening of Family Day you can join your Soldier for a buffet dinner at one of the clubs on the post. A general headcount is needed, so please let your Soldier know how many guests will attend. Tickets can be purchased during Family Day activities.
Graduation is the following day at 9 a.m. (Spring/Summer schedule) or 10 a.m. (Fall/Winter schedule) on Hilton Field, unless otherwise indicated. See your Soldier's unit page for the correct time and location. In the event of inclement weather, the ceremony will take place at the Solomon Center and the time schedule may change to accommodate more than one ceremony.
