The U.S. Marine Corps provides a four-hour class the day before graduation under its Lifestyle, Insights, Networking, Knowledge and Skills program for families. Registration involves leaving a message at the telephone number on the L.I.N.K.S. page including the caller name, the expected number of participants and the trainee graduation date. The class focuses on an overview of the Corps and what families can expect during their Marine's tour of duty.

Obtaining a base pass takes up to an hour and requires a valid driver's license, proof of insurance and current automobile registration. Students are not able to leave the base with their visitors. As of 2015, students are typically available on family days from 1:30 p.m. to 8 p.m. on Sundays and 3:30 p.m. to 8 p.m. on Mondays. On the morning of graduation, visitors meet with the base commander for orientation and with trainees for a tour of the base. Trainees can meet with families after graduation ceremonies if time allows before departure and after completing preparation tasks.
