When my son was on Grad hold, he stayed at Goose Creek for about 3 1/2 months, then went to Ballston Spa and waited there another month. There was a hold up, because the reactors were down, that happens a lot. He'll just have to wait and see. There's a lot of that in the Navy. While in Goose Creek, they gave him the job of driving the van. Which meant he stayed at the rec room and waited for calls to either take someone somewhere or pick them up for something. He enjoyed it, it was a wonderful break from the stress of school. Plus he was able to get back to working out, which he had no time for before.
