hello lemonelephant. I want to thank you for help and advics, while my son was in boot camp, he has since graduated, and is now in A school, @ Great Lakes, my question is when is A school starting, and can they come home , thanks
Only your Sailor can tell you when he will class up and start "A" School. Yes, he will be able to come home sometime over the holiday stand-down at the "A" Schools. I may or may not be for Christmas, If you live within the mileage limit, then he would be able to go home at other times once he phases up and can leave the base for Liberty. This is a strange place for you to post since your Sailor is not goin to "A" School for HM. What is his rating (job/specialty) going to be?
