My son graduates from boot camp 12/28/12. From there he will be going to Charleston for nuke school. I was wondering if anyone knew for sure whether they will get leave after graduation until the start of school and what those dates are.
Yes, I would love to know this information as well!
I've read on here somewhere that they can leave 12/29 at 4:00 p.m. and be back in Charleston on 1/6, but I just wanted to know if others have received the same information. I hate to get my hopes up.
I've been wondering the same thing. I talked to my SR on Saturday and he said they still had to be briefed on it. Haven't received a letter yet either. He said he wasn't for sure but he thought he had three options, but he could very well be wrong:
1) Come home with us right after Graduation and fly into Charleston by 1-6. (My personal favorite :P)
2) Fly with the Navy to Nuke school then get round trip tickets to come home and back by 1-6.
3) Fly with the Navy to Nuke school and stay there.
But don't quote me because this is just what he heard through the grapevine before being briefed.
Please update if anyone finds info out :)
#1 is my personal favorite, too. I'm expecting letters tomorrow. Hopefully, he'll give me some info on the subject. I'll post if he does.
My son assures me they will get holiday leave, but still no word as to whether they can leave after graduation or if they have to check into their A schools first. I hate not knowing. If I find out anything, I'll post about it.
When I called the housing office in Charleston one of the Chiefs who works there said that it was best for my situation to have my husband go straight to SC (he is also nuke) then to fly back to me to help me move so we can drive there together. That way he has time to get the housing ready since he will be in the barracks for the first few days. He also thought that they had a choice, and every situation is different of course.
Thank you. I hope it works.
What's the name of the FB page? I'd like to check it out.
