If you have a sailor who's doing an IA with a different branch and they run into problems there is help for them, They are called CTF-IA. located in Kuwait, Iraq and Afghanistan. I just found this and now my son is getting the assistance he truly needed. Trying to do it alone and being a low rank just doesn't work. He found out the hard way.and it didn't need to be. Here is the link about what these people do for our volunteers.
