    Question Orders question

    Advertisements
    So we got DH's hard copies yesterday. But they only have him on the ship for 2 yr 9 months. That just sounds really off when the sea rotation for his rate/rank is 4.5 years. I remember Brandi said something about the guys on J's ship being extended on there. Anyone have any ideas? (ship is a pre-com that wont be delivered to the navy till Sept 09)

    I don't know, is it 2 yrs 9 mos after the ship is commissioned? Or is that the total time?
    I know dh has to go back to sea after his ship commissions, he won't have enough sea time between the commissioning and his rotation date. But that might be because it's been pushed back so much, I don't know.

    Nope it's 2yrs 9mnts from the time he checks on board. That is what threw us. DH called and left a message for his detailer to find out what's up. But of course we havent heard back from him yet.

    I have a feeling that Melissa's DH is right that he has to extend for 2 years after the commissioning. That would put him at what the rotation is.

    I asked dh what he thought, and he said it usually varies by command. Sometimes they make you stay, sometimes they give you a choice. I don't know if they make you leave or not, lol! He would have still have to go back to sea, though.
    I hope the detailer will be able to shed some more light on it. If not, maybe he can call the command?

    Is that when his enlistment is up? That's the only other thing I can think of.
    Needs work.

    Donna, Jason's orders looked the same way. He will have to extend for an additional 2-3 years, depending on the command. His orders were only written for 2 years and some change, but I believe at the bottom somewhere in fine print (or maybe in an email he sent me later) it stated that he would have to extend to fulfill his commitment.

    Hmm I don't know. Tony's orders to his precom were a full 5 year obligation (his rotations is 5/3). He has to extend his enlistment before recieving his orders. Maybe it was because he was in the very first crew for that precom.

    DH said that is what his chief said will happen. That it will be up to the ship just how much he is exended.

    DH is considered phase 1 crew. Not sure of what that exactly means though.
