Boot Camp. Here is what will happen. You will watch them receive their EGA's which makes them Marines which is on Thursday if I remember correctly. Then on Friday they will do this run around the island in the morning and you will kind of watch. After that they graduate from Boot Camp. Then you get to hang our with them and go and eat lunch on the base. Then they leave. I went through the process and then I watched my brother go through the process. It can change though.

I can tell you what happened when I graduated almost 20 years ago. The day before graduation we got our EGA emblems that morning with just our platoon.

that afternoon (around noonish) we marched to where our parents were and we had "liberty till around 6 pm ish. then that night they had a dinner/drink event for all the families.

Graduation day it rained so we had an indoor graduation and it lasted maybe bout an hour and was done by around 11 am.

After that 99.9% of the graduates are on leave so once they are dismissed we were free to go.

like I said this was a long time ago so it may have changed also I went to Parris Isl and they could do it diff in Sad Diego
