    Bereavement leave?

    Advertisements
    Can anyone tell me how this works? Ryan's grandma is being taken off of life support and we trying to figure out if he should come out now or go for the funeral or what, so we need to know how it works. Thanks.

    I don't know how it works, but I'm sorry for what's happening. I am guessing you call Red Cross and give them all the hopital info. That's what I did when my grandmother died to get word to my husband. I'd call them, they'd know.

    The same thing happened with my grandpa in January. He went downhill pretty fast, like 3 or 4 days in ICU. We told my brother (stationed in WA state) that there was a possibility that he may pass away, so I think he got the wheels turning with whoever is in charge before we had anything concrete. It was less than a week that we had his funeral, and that was enough time for my brother to make necessary accommodations with his base and fly home. The Army always has a way of screwing you though, so I don't know if you will have the same situation as me. I wish you the best.

    I got a week off when my grandmother died to drive to connecticut....it doesn't come off your regular leave balance. It's up to his command how much time they will give him.

    Okay, so there's no forms or anything I can do then, he just needs to let his command know whats going on?

    Thanks for the help, ladies!

    Yes, his command can take care of everything...If I remember correctly, he will just get regular leave papers....
