My son's in A school for fire control right now. We've been looking forward to the leave that he'll get following A school before he goes on to C school. Now, he says it may be possible for him to save that leave and use it at Christmas time. I hope that he's right because his younger brother and sisters would get to spend so much more time with him! Does anyone have experience with leave being used around Christmas? How flexible are the dates?
We made it up for our son's PIR, but we can't afford another trip. I haven't gotten any details about A school graduation, either, and that makes me think it's likely that families don't usually attend...? I hope you get a more helpful answer soon!
If your son is in Great Lakes A school the stand down od Dec. 22nd to Jan. 7th. right now they are only accepting chits for out of country visits, after Halloween they will be putting in their Chits for Christmas. I spoke to my son over the weekend and that is what he has learned. because of so many wanting to leave for the holiday my mentioned it will take 2 weeks to almost a month to get the answer back if approved. now not to sure really how long but that is what he was told. MWR is on base and they will be able to go to them to make arrangement for flights they give them discounts on airfare. so right now they cannot make plans until they know the outcome of approval. and then if they do plan on leaving the 22nd it will probably be later in the afternoon because they have to wait for paperwork, instructions, plus the travel to airport. Hope this helps Ladies
