When I learned that my son's division was a Grad & Go, I was very confused. I knew that
my son's A-school was in Great Lakes, and didn't understand why he was a Grad & Go..
I thought Grad & Go was for new Sailors going off to somewhere else for A-school, but found out at PIR that was not the case at all........
A Grad & Go division means that the whole division packs up all their stuff the night before PIR and immediately after PIR, they are loaded on a bus and taken across the
street to the other base. They have to vacate the "ship" that they stayed in for boot camp... probably to make space for new divisions coming in. They do not go back to RTC.........
Most or all have weekend Liberty, and do not have to be back on base until Sunday night, although they have to call in every night.
Hopefully this will clear up a lot of questions for others
