Hi Divided_Duo! My son is at DLIFLC with his wife. They have a great apartment that is off base but really close. (Monterey Pines is the complex.) They dated for years and got married by a judge over Thanksgiving break so that she could go out there with him. The studying at DLI is intense, so if she goes, his wife would have to understand that when he is not in school, he may still be working at home studying. There are other military couples in their complex, so she was able to make some friends - it helped. The area is absolutely beautiful - always feels like early spring or early fall to me.
Lorene, I am more than a little jealous that you live so close and can see your sailor on weekends! For us it is a full day of pricey flying... :(
Glad to hear that they are resuming in person graduations! :D
Have a great day everyone!
Hi again Divided_Duo - I don't know about the in-person PIR, but graduations will resume at Monterey Aug 5, per their FB posts I have just seen (and confirmed by my son in Monterey). This won't affect you for a while, but shows that life is getting back to normal - yay!
I just spoke to my son regarding married life at DLIFLC. He said that they'd be in much better housing and get more money lol, but don't know about the whole permission thing. It is super beautiful down there, but much colder than you think. We recently had a heat wave here in the bay area where it was close to 100, and there with the fog, it was 60. Kinda like SF - we can spot the tourists because they're wearing tank tops and their lips are blue with cold :-)
It is an absolutely stunning location!
Total non-sequitur, my son says that the men he meets from Ohio are the absolute best people he's ever met. Salt of the earth. One of the best things about the military is that he's able to meet so many men from other parts of the country!
Hi Divided_Duo - I'm not familiar with the program your SR is going in to but I can confirm that as of right now there are NO live PIR's (graduations) from boot camp. They are hoping to open them back up soon but as of now RTC says it won't be happening for any of the July PIR's. Fingers crossed maybe it will happen in August. Your best bet is to join the boot camp group - I left the link in the welcome message on your page - and you can find more up to date info there regarding PIR.
As far as them getting married that might not be able to happen as quickly as they would like either. He will need to get to Monterey, get situated, and then he would need to get permission from his command to get married. Once he gets there his command will be able to answer questions as to the best way to handle that. And again, it might be better if they just wait a bit since he will be so busy with school. But, try to tell that to young love lol!
AntiM is a good person on here that could probably answer your questions about them getting married. Maybe she'll see this and respond.
Hi Lorene -
Thank you so much for the information - It is very helpful, we are from Ohio so we may be earning some frequent flyer miles :-) Congratulations to your son, that is fantastic!
Honestly I don't know how she will be, when he was in college he would put off doing assignments because she was there. He still did very well, but I don't think this is going to be like college :-)
Thank you again for responding - Have a wonderful day!
Good morning Divided_Duo! My son is 23 and currently at DLI Monterey, graduating in Oct for Arabic. We live 1.5 hrs away and it has been incredible to be able to see him as often as he'd like to come. Last year he was under lockdown (Covid) and was unable to see us. Now he could come home any weekend he isn't on duty, but the visits are about once a month now, as he's established friends and interests there.
I would say yes, it is incredible difficult for at least the first 6 months. And my son had to do it via Zoom - 6 hrs a day of instruction, watching it on a laptop. It was awful. They're back in person now, and he's doing well, but they are literally drinking out of a fire hose. There is 6 hours of instruction and 2-3 hours of homework a night, and I don't know if a wife would be helpful/hurtful; I suppose it depends on the wife! I don't know details of if wives are allowed, etc. They are grouped in rooms by language and by branch of service. Sorry I couldn't be of more help!
Hello...My son is graduating bootcamp at the end of this month then heading out to DLI Monterey - he was assigned Chinese but wanted Russian :-)
Questions - from everything I read Boot Camp graduations are still cancelled and available online, is this still correct?
With the DLI being very difficult, (again from everything I've read) is there a good time to visit him? Are we even allowed to visit?
I'm so new to this military life that my head is often spinning with all the information so I apologize for my ignorance. He is 20 YO and got engaged before he left for bootcamp. They've been dating for 3 years and now would like to rush getting married so she can go out to Monterey with him. His father and I think he needs to get out there first, wait about 6 months to see how everything is going then see what happens. Are we wrong for thinking this? I just think he's rushing life and needs to concentrate on himself and school for the next 2 years.
Thank you for any advice!!! <3
Arabic! If it's Korean, I believe he may end up in Hawaii, which will be fabulous for visits :-)
