10-Day Leave After Boot Camp Graduation
Learn about the 10-day leave Marines earn after completing recruit training.
The next phase of training after boot camp is SOI, or School of Infantry. Your new Marine is entitled to ten days leave after recruit training. Your new Marine may report to SOI early in order to save leave if desired.
Your Marine should listen, read, pay attention to, and ask questions about his/her orders before departing the Recruit Depot. Your Marine will have a copy of his/her orders with them when they leave the Recruit Depot.
Your Marine is required to check in no later than 1300 (that's 1:00 p.m.) on the date designated on his/her orders. Your Marine can find these by looking on the signed receiving endorsement on the bottom front paper of his/her orders. Marines are required to report directly to the school if they arrive early; they are NOT to get a hotel room in town.
