In parts of Canada, Family Day is a statutory holiday occurring on a Monday in February. In the provinces of Alberta, Manitoba, Ontario, Prince Edward Island, and Saskatchewan, it is observed on the third Monday of February; in the provinces of Manitoba and Prince Edward Island, the holiday is instead termed Louis Riel Day and Islander Day, respectively.
Family day is the day before graduation. He should be allowed to spend the night with you in the hotel the night in between the two. If you are driving him to his AIT , he will be released to you after the graduation ceremony. So at a minimum, you should get the hotel room for the day before Family Day (when you would arrive there), Family Day and Graduation Day. If his report day to Gordon is the same day, then you'll have to drive down there after graduation (only about a 2 1/2 hour drive). If it's the next day, I would get the hotel for a 4th day so you get one extra night with him.
Fort Benning Family Day and Gradution?
Family Day lasts all day the day before the graduation...however they do have to go back to spend the night. Graduation seems like it lasts forever but really only lasts maybe an hour. It's hot in Columbus....very muggy even this time of year. Wear something that is cool but that you can layer because GA weather can be weird....steaming hot one day and frigid the next....so basically take something for either hot or cold weather. Most people just wear casual clothes so don't worry about dressing up because you'd probably get uncomfortable since you'll be going up and down bleachers. Also after the graduation it takes a little while for them to be released so you'll be hanging out for a while. I think it took about an hour or so for my husband to get released. Hope you guys have fun on his family day! And take lots of pictures of his graduation! ;-)
Family Day is a day where he can show you around a little he can usually leave post for a little while but will have a curfew. Outside of Know there is not a whole lot to do so have fun at the Gold Vault in there is a chicken place down the road. Louisville is not far but too far to drive for him Graduation is the Next day and then he will have a day or two until he has to go to AIT unless he has already done that.
