My daughter graduated A school a couple months ago. No ceremony and she got her badge at her next duty station. Get your orders, pack your bags and clean your barracks. She said that was all there was.
Five years ago the ceremony was small, nothing like PIR. But it was a ceremony. No idea if they’ve downsized it.
My son is graduating A school this Friday. He says there won't be a ceremony, just a sign out and given a badge.
Anyone know more of how this is done nowadays?
Congrats, lots of fun stuff ahead.
Almost everyone is from out of state when they go to a base but I am pretty sure that's all I used because they need to see you are licensed if you are driving and everyone in the vehicle has to show ID, which was a license. You also have to show the pass which has the names on it. From what I remember.
Just one more question -- I have a NYS driver license. Will this be sufficient to get me on base (in addition to my son putting my name at the gate(s)?
Ya, Rich has some more good points. I echo his comments. I can't guarantee this but we went to Sea World and they let all 3 of us in free as he was military. That was nice. Map out your trips as I remember San Antonio highways to be confusing and insane.
Good info Dale. Our son met us at the gate the evening before to get checked in, then we were able to drive on base to their barracks where he signed out and we took him to the Riverwalk for dinner and were able to drop him off inside the base after. MA graduation is a must, pinning the badge is awesome! My wife and I both pinned it on him. Pretty informal ceremony, could move around to take photos, and was able to stand up on the stage and film them swearing in. After we were able to walk around and see where the training took place, and meet a lot of other MA's. Congrats to your son.
