From the Commander

It's graduation time for our MOS-T and MOS-I students. They have become Soldiers, trained and proficient in all their warrior tasks and drills. It is now time to celebrate their achievements, by congratulating them, and letting them go out into the Operational Army to show what they have learned. For those family members that wish to attend the graduation ceremony, directions are provided below.
