The say that there is no such thing as planning ahead in the Navy. LOL!
My DEPper had been scheduled to swear in on October 11, but a month ago they told him that he could go on September 27. It was a little crazy because we had planned a major "sending off" vacation for the family and our flight wouldn't be getting back to Cleveland until late on September 25, and then we'd have to drive back to the Cincinnati area on no sleep so he could catch the van to Columbus the next day! Fortunately, his recruiter was able to arrange that we could drop him in Columbus instead of him having to ride up in the van, we got a good night's rest in a hotel, got him there on time, and now he's off. Hopefully he will be well enough rested to do ok on those first few exhausting days.
Glad things worked out.
