Adam's Mom: I recall reading that liberty for those attending GL A School changed back in, I believe, April. They used to be allowed overnight liberty, but no longer. We, too, are staying at the Ramada. I didn't think to look at suites, but will do so now to see if there is a big price difference. We'll have a five-year-old along, so I was thinking that if my son naps or wants to spend time online, the rest of us can go down to the pool, as I don't think the little one will be content to sit in a hotel room for very long.
SheilaD: I read that for those attending GL A School, the parents should allow 3-4 hours after PIR for them to move over to their A School. I would hope it doesn't take that long! There is info in one of the discussions about things to do/eat on base while waiting or you can leave base and come back to pick him up. In the 10/21 discussion, a N4M veteran also said there is a slight chance that they won't move over to A School until after the weekend. I really hope that doesn't happen to my son, as I am hoping to be able to leave his cell phone, etc. with him, and it's my understanding they can't have their personal belongings until after they move to A School.
