Family & Friends Graduation Program


MCRD Graduation Program — Home

The MCRD Family and Friends Graduation Program, the ONLY OFFICIAL program designed jointly by the military and CWTSatoTravel, provides affordable travel services for the families and friends of recruits to attend graduation ceremonies. Our exclusive negotiations with airlines and hotels and our team of knowledgeable travel counselors make it easy to share in the joy of your recruit's graduation at very reasonable prices.

Call 1-800-755-5670 and one of our agents will help you choose the best options for your trip including:

  • Competitive rates for flights.
  • Exclusive Family & Friends rates at many popular hotels in San Diego within 5 miles of MCRD – all with a lowest price guarantee included and negotiated complimentary amenities such as free breakfast and shuttle to the base. Some restrictions may apply - see our Accommodations list for full details.
  • Reduced Car Rental Rates.
  • When booking through CWT SatoTravel we can leave information for the recruit eliminating delayed regular mail communication and possible duplicate bookings or flight/date errors.
  • ALL recruits report to our office 2 weeks before graduating.

For travel information, see our tabs to the left or download the MCRD San Diego - Graduation brochure (which you may have received already from your recruit) that includes Depot and graduation information, event times and important phone numbers.
