Boot camp graduations are usually on Fridays. Sometimes, due to holidays such as Thanksgiving, Christmas, Easter and the Marine Corps Birthday, graduation will be on a Wednesday. If that is the case the USMC schedule will indicate the Wednesday graduation.
Graduation and ship dates are kept up-to-date on the Marine Family Network Boot Camp Groups page. We encourage you to join your recruit’s graduation group. It will be a great place for you to connect with other families who have recruits going through boot camp with your son or daughter.
If you need help finding the correct graduation date or group, please ask one of our volunteer moderators who will be happy to help you find your way!
