Fort Jackson changing graduation

Jul 7, 2010 9:15:00 PM - thestate.com
Fort Jackson’s Basic Combat Training graduation ceremonies will change from Fridays to Thursdays beginning July 29.

Graduation activities include a family day and a graduation ceremony over a two-day period at the conclusion of the soldiers’ 10-week training cycle.

Fort Jackson officials said the change saves money and gives drill instructors an extra day of family time before starting a new training cycle.

Fort Jackson graduates 45,000 soldiers and conducts 45 graduation ceremonies each year. More than 100,000 family members travel to Columbia each year to attend the event.
