    on your wedding!
  4. His A-School is 12 weeks long, so we do not have a lot of time to plan something. I pretty much have a place, photographer, and DJ. But as far as the date goes, what do you guys think? Should I push up the date, or do you think we will be fine in May?

    He'll probably have to talk to someone to get time off or just work around his schedule. You can get enrolled in Tricare as long as you have your military id before then by yourself & you can get your SS card without him, just need your birth certificate, marriage license, ID, and your old SS card.

    It's a lot easier when they're not in school.

    @GreenAZ - You get your name changed when you get married with a JOP wedding. All the paperwork you fill out before the vows is when you decide if you want to change your name or not.
  6. lol. sounds good to me. i just think it would make things so much mroe complicated to try and arrange something while he is in the middle of school. and i don't want to add any more pressure for him. i actually was in the process of planning a wedding for may 26th. i figured if i did it memorial day weekend it might be easier for him to get approved for leave. i haven't booked anything, but we are penciled in. but now my question is that if he graduates A-School april 12th, is may 26th too late for a wedding because by then he will have already been at his first duty station?

    As to where you should get married JOP- it would probably be best to wait until he is done with school for the reasons you stated. That is what my hubby and I did, so I'm biased to think its the best option.
  8. So, get married, CHANGE NAME, enroll in DEERS, get I.D. Will this all be difficult to do while he is in the middle of A-School?

    @rissa*rawr below- shouldn't she change her name first so that she doesn't have to go through and change all that paperwork?

    Hey, welcome to MSOS
    I'll try to help all I can.

    DH & I were in the same situation. We ended up having a JOP wedding & then a bigger wedding with our family 6 months later.
    If that's the route you want to take then you don't have to do anything until after you're married.

    You'll really have to do is go onto base with your SO & get enrolled in DEERS, have him fill out some paperwork listing you as a dependent, ect. They'll explain everything there.
    Also, you'll need to get your military ID card. If you're doing all this here in Port Hueneme, then your best bet is to make an appointment after you're married to get that. Their offices are usually packed. I waited for 3 hours to get my ID because we didn't make an appointment.
    You'll need your marriage license & 2 forms of ID for those.

    Next would be to get enrolled in Tricare.

    And last would be to change your name on your Social Security card. You'll need to fill out an application & mail it in or bring it to the SS office. The one here is over on Fifth St.
