Welcome to the
Hello, everyone. This is my first post on this board. I enjoyed and learned so much from the PI board, I don't know why it took me so long to find and use this one! Our son was in H Co., PLT 2024 on Parris Island, now he's in Delta, 3rd PLT. I"ve just spent the last hour reading all of your posts! Can someone explain anything about the SOI/ITB graduation? We are planning to come down to NC over the 4th of July to see our Marine. While he's on liberty, we're going to stay at the beach. He'll have to be back on the 6th. What happens on the 8th for graduation? I don't expect anything on the scale of Parris Island, but really don't know what to expect? Is there a typical schedule? Do many parents/families go to this graduation? Will he have to remain on base that day? Thanks for any information you can provide.
