Hi, Thanks all for sharing this site has been so helpful. So I get that we won't know how long we can get them after grduation but if they are available through the weekend is it ever overnight? or do they always have to spend the night back on base? Thanks
Also I was thinking of spending a couple days in the city of Chicago since I have never been there and if he can get out during the days picking him up and dropping him off. Is that something that is doable? Thanks
imalia -- Welcome. I'd suggest posting your question on the Main BC moms page as well. Not everyone gets the notification of New Discussions.
If their A school is at GL they get overnight. If they are in THU on the A school side- they MIGHT get over Night. IF they are on the BC side they DO NOT get over night, They also DO NOT get their Phones and they CANNOT bring ANYTHING back on base that is considered BC Contraband -- Clothes, phones, electronics, food.... They will KNOW the rules. This is 100% subject to change at any time and for any reason! Welcome to the Navy! Semper Gumby!!
If you have a FULL Day (Not just PIR Friday) It's somewhat doable but you really have to watch your time and be back well before the cut off. ON time is LATE. Have him back to base 30 min to 1 hour before curfew. It is a HUGE issue if they are late. Mine didn't have that opportunity which is why I suggest posting on the main BC page so that some of our other moms who have recently had similar experiences can chime in.
