My son's orders were just cancelled a week before he was to leave. he is in san diego only for C school. so now he has no new orders and he hasn't been told what to do on his check out date. Has this happen to anyone else and can anyone direct me to who he should take this to help him resolve this situation ?
He will continue to be housed, either in the school barracks or in THU (temporary housing). He needs to talk to school admin about contacting his detailer for new orders. He needs to communicate with his chain of command, be proactive, flexible, and patient. Being on hold after C school waiting for orders is nothing new at all, many sailors experience this.
He will not be out on the street, no need to worry about that. No, he cannot come home to wait for orders, or take leave until he has orders, so that may be disappointing.
How long did you have to wait for your sailor to get new orders? My son has been on Temporary hold for going on 5 weeks. I am anxious for him, but do not want to pressure him on what to do.....
