The Navy will provide your son with a ticket from his A school to  C school. He can then reroute and pay any additional charges to get home.

There is no need for you to be purchasing tickets for your Sailor. Your son's orders and travel arrangements will state the dates. Besides, your son is now a responsible adult with a well paying job. He needs to handle is own financial affairs.

I think  I worded some of this wrong. He is already in San Antonio so A school and C school are at the same place so I don't think they will pay for his flight to come home for a visit.

I also won't be paying for his tickets, just purchasing (with his money) for him since he doesn't have a computer yet.

Ah ha,,,

Then he's the only one who can tell you the dates in his orders. Most likely he will be able to travel right after graduation.

Has he looked into working at the local recruiting office while home? Its a great way to conserve his leave time.

No but I will mention it. Thanks !

SO EVEN IF HE IS RETURNING TO SAN ANTONIO, THEY PAY FOR THE RETURN FLIGHT? NEVER HEARD ABOUT A TRAVEL OFFICE. I WILL TELL HIM TO CHECK.

Sorry, I thought you meant after C school!   You didn't specify A school graduation, just graduation.  Could be as quick as the same day or next morning, unless they need him to check out and clear his barracks room.  If he can stay in the same room, he can be out fast.  He'll know his dates when his leave request chit gets approved.  

I deleted my other reply so as not to confuse anyone else.   There is a travel office which handles official military travel, and en route leave travel.   There is usually a leisure travel office on base too, often through MWR.

Sorry about the confusion. I know he has to move to a building across the street. Not sure what he is waiting on but I will be checking :) Thanks

 

He needs to put in a chit for the days he wants once it's approved you can book his flight

I am sure he knows what that is :) and will let me know as soon as he can. Thanks!
