Ft Jackson_2019 Training Graduation


Graduation from Basic Combat Training or AIT is a good time to celebrate a Soldier’s accomplishments.

Detailed schedules of graduation events are available from the Soldier’s unit or company. Highlights of the Soldier’s unit or company training experience are presented in an orientation provided by the unit or company Wednesday, before graduation.

On Family Days, which are held each Wednesday, families and friends may visit their Soldiers in the company areas and spend time with them on post. Graduation is held Thursday outdoors at Hilton Field in good weather. Graduating Soldiers may be signed out “on pass” after graduation so families are free to explore the activities Fort Jackson and the Columbia area have to offer.

Return times must be met so that Soldiers can proceed as scheduled to the next training location or assignment.
