From the moment R-night begins, every recruit looks forward to Advancement Day. There is no other day so anticipated by ALERT men and their parents. From the skills demonstration early in the afternoon, where the men exhibit the capabilities they have acquired, to the moment they reunite with their families after nine challenging weeks, Advancement is an opportunity to commemorate what the men have accomplished in the power of God’s might.
