Attention military moms.

My son is currently in AIT training and will be coming home in a couple weeks. We just found out he will be stationed in Germany and has to leave the day after the wedding. From a city 10 hours from us. He isnt due in Germany until that Monday but because they wont fly him on a weekend he has to literally get married and leave. We asked for his extra leave time and were told no and asked if he could at least have recruitment time here and they said they only picked a few. Does anyone know if we can do anything?

Hello Kate.

You might be better off re-posting this in the forum 'Military Spouses with Children' category. I'm a part of that group, and it seems like you might better get the answer you need.

My husband is in the Navy, so I know a little about how things should go, but I'm not quite understanding your situation. What branch is he in? Why is he having to leave from a city ten hours away? (That's a little much.)

There may not be anything you can do about it, but miracles can happen. Lol. The military is pretty strict on orders, and following them. So if they tell him he has to leave on a certain day, there is no getting around it. Unfortunately. -- I'm sorry he has to leave so soon after. I know that is going to be unpleasant. But again, try re-posting in the forum I mentioned above, and you may be able to get a more thorough answer. :] -- Have a great one.
