Christmas Exodus


I have been searching everywhere for dates for Christmas Exodus and other information about it. It is my understanding that I will get to see my husband as he will have a break from basic training but I don’t have any other information about it. Please help!



Hi Amy,

According to the Ft Leonard Wood basic training website, the exodus dates for 2009 are December 18 to January 2. The dates for other training posts should be very similar if not exactly the same. Your soldier should be able to tell you for certain.

For more information about Christmas Exodus, read this article about my own experience when my husband came home for Christmas Exodus.

Hope this helps. Enjoy the time with your Army soldier!

    My boyfriend is in Ft. Knox for basic training. If he comes home for Christmas Exodus can he leave that town to visit family?
