I never realized there was a limit on the number to see them being sworn in. When my son was sworn in 3 of us went but I remember there were families with more members present. Could depend on the MEPS though - ours was San Diego. I would say take them and worst case they have to wait outside (hopefully they are old enough to be left alone.). I do know there is a limit on PIR (normally 4 can attend but some larger groups only allow 3).
call the MEPS station itself where he will go and ask directly. I have never heard of a MEPS limit.
I would call to double check also. I remember one of the recruits had a family of five with him when my son was sworn in.
Moira I would call the MEPS office, I know when we went there were four of us and no restrictions.
That was very nice of you, there are many recruits who are lonley and by themselves in BC, some families just dont have the means to be able to attend or some just dont have family. Thank You for doing that for him!
