I am new to this group so maybe this has been asked before but after a school graduation from great lakes how does the process work of getting home? I assume their flights are arranged by the navy but are they then on their own and can go home first before reporting to their reserve station?
Im243, I just replied to your post earlier. I hope you seen it. Yes, they are on their own after that and usually have to check in within 72 hours. He should have that information on his orders that he gets before he leaves his A school.
Thanks! He originally seemed to think he had to report straight to the reserve station. Luckily for him though it is only about 20 minutes from our house so he can drive back and forth easily.How far in advance did your sailor know about the flight details back home?
