I am like freaking out right now because I am not sure if they got my husband's Itinerary in time. I called the public affairs office and she told me she thought it was Dec. 3rd, last Friday. but that if we didn't meet the deadline they should stil be able to come home. But I talked to that lady yesterday and she didn't really know what she was talking about. She couldn't even tell me the fax number for the scheduling office. Do you know what the deadline is for division 906 for the itinerary? I would REALLY appreciate it if you could let me know.
Thanks, Megan = )
I thought he could just make the arrangements when he got home, but then when I emailed his itinerary home they told me I had to send his itinerary for A School too. So I got a non refundable flight bc I couldn't find any refundable ones. Atleast now I know I have it covered because I heard if you don't send the right itinerary they can't come home. That's so cool our husbands are in the same division! Does that mean they have the same job? Maybe I will see you at Grad! lol. Thanks for the info and friend request. = )
I am out in the River Ridge area. My son is Ship 03 Div 27. One of my son's friends left at the same time. They both ended up in the same division. I haven't seen that mom on here.
Yes, I received the box but no letter. I remember recruiter said approximately 7-10 days after he leaves to receive the letter. I sure do miss him. He is my only child. It's something he really wanted to do and I am proud of that.
