Can family visit during AIT?

While family members are free to move to the same area, they will not be allowed to see the soldier any more often than if they lived far away. Visitation during basic training is only allowed for family day and graduation. The longer his AIT is, the more likely it is that he will have more freedom.

Can you bring civilian clothes to AIT?

Pack light because you won't need anything civilian until IF you are allowed weekend passes in AIT. In AIT buy a laptop or have someone from home ship it to you. Same with a few pairs of civilian clothes. Don't be last for anything.

Can you quit the army during AIT?

If by AIT you are referring to Advanced Individual Training, the school you attend after basic training…then the answer is sort of. You can't quit the US Army, per se. The Army can decide that you are unfit to continue training or serving because of medical or discipline problems, but there are ups and downs to both.
