How do I know if my son will graduate boot camp this weekend?

My family, like many will travel many miles to get to IL. this weekend (8/15) I haven't recieved a letter in a while and zero phone calls.
When is all the testing complete and how do I get a definite answer to my question??

Niles you should receive a call as soon as Evan passes battlestations. Which I think they started battlestations today and half of them go Monday and the other half Tuesday( I think). So you should receive a call from him as soon as battlestations is over. You might hear from him in the morning and he will sound worn out ( like a whopped puppy dog ) So you should receive a call Tues morning or Wed at the latest.
Hi Niles, great question that we've all probably asked. It takes a while to get all the divs through battlestations, so there's no telling when your son will be done. However, I believe all those who pass and are capped as Navy Sailors get the "proud moment phone call home". Luke actually called me around 3 pm on Wednesday (we flew to IL early Thurs), so at least I knew he made it. On the other hand, the PIR paperwork states that those who will not graduate, for whatever reason, will be able to notify their family and recruiter. Let's hope for good news for you!
Feeling really bad for you should have heard something by now. I would call his recruiter asap. Hope you hear something soon. Our son will graduate 9/19 from BC. He is on Ship 14 Div 344.
We were notified 2 days prior to graduation due to the back log of divisions going through battlestation. After battlestation a definite answer. I understand your anxiety and frustration and pray for good news.
