I posted this in another group, but am hoping I'll hear answers here as well. I'm wondering if the collective wisdom can help a little more than my sailor's command structure. I totally get that there are no specifics in terms of dates or even reasonable expectations, but I'm wondering if either spouses of or parents who had married sailors can comment as to the approximate timeline after graduating A school.
We know approximately when my sailor will graduate A school (which is even slightly confusing given some of the timelines I've heard of other sailors in his program). What I'm wondering about is even a vague timeline of what happens next. We know he's signed up for the deal where he comes home for two weeks to work at his recruiter's office for some of that time in order to take less leave. After that, I have no idea what to expect in terms of when we'll PCS. We're trying to succession-plan at my work and having a better understanding of when I'll be leaving will be helpful.
Any advice or thoughts?
Thanks, proudwife! I've seen lots of sailors in his school getting orders fairly quickly, but it's good to know that orders might not come in any projected pattern.
I am new to all this but what is PCS?
Permanent Change of Station, orders that usually necessitate relocation.
