I have no clue what to expect on his ship date. What all will he have to do before he leaves? Can I be with him at the airport before he ships? Will he be more likely to leave in the morning, afternoon or evening? Any information at all will be helpful!

Well, with Nick, he left on a bus to the airport 2 (i think) days before his ship date and stayed at a hotel near the airport with a roommate who was also heading to Lackland on the 17th.
Basically they wake up early and do MEPS both days and they swear in (i think) and other than that, Nick said they sit in the hotel room and do nothing!
They get a little free time during the day though, to leave the hotel and get lunch with family, etc.

I snuck into his hotel room in the evening :)
Shh! We arent supposed to be there haha but it wasnt a big deal.
I said goodbye that night and the next day he flew out at about mid-day.

I hope I helped a little!

We had to drop Gregg off at this hotel the day before he shipped out and he stayed there overnight and just went to some briefing/meeting things. Then the next morning they went to the airport and flew to Lackland.

Nick's ship was on a Tuesday, but he left the day before on Monday.
That Monday, I had spent the night at his house, so his mom and I drove him to the recruiters around 12pm where he had to sign a lot of last minute paper work. After that, he had to wait for the shuttle bus that would take him to MEPS in New Orleans. So I stayed with him untill about 2ish because I had to go up to my school.
The shuttle bus came around 2:30 for him, and he went straight to MEPs. He didn't do much Monday night; just talked to me all night on the phone and hung out at the hotel.
Tuesday, he had to get up at 4:30 in the morning so he could get some last minute medical exams and other paper work done. After that, they bussed everyone to the airport. I think he had to change flights like, 3 times, but he got to Lackland at about 9 pm Tuesday night. He was allowed to call me all day Mondaywhile he was at the airport, and when he got to Lackland, but it was before he actually got to BMT.
Nick told me that they had a few people that had their friends and family at the airport with them to see them off, so you should be allowed to go.
