    For AF SO's--how long to get word on crosstraining?

    Advertisements
    Hey everyone,
    My DH put in for crosstraining 5 weeks ago and still hasn't had any word--his application is listed as being "in processing." No one in his shop has crosstrained recently so no one's able to give him an idea of when he might hear something.
    I know the board is required to consider his app for 3 months in a row before being able to reject it outright.
    Has anyone else's SO crosstrained? How long did it take before you heard anything back?
    TIA--

    I heard it can take a few months, just be patient. We will be going through all that in a few months time.

    All right ladies, thanks very much. It's so hard to be patient because he wants this really badly! He told me today he keeps trying to keep himself from checking his app, and he'll go a few days and then break down and check it again Poor DH.

    I'll tell him what y'all said and tell him he can call and ask about it if he's really anxious!

    Thanks again, y'all rock!

    Dh retrained 8.5 years ago, it took several months to find out... What is he wanting to retrain to?


    JENN: Wow! Your db isn't going to be a load anymore? What's his new job going to be?

    Hey there, he's listed three options: finance (he's working on his degree in business), physical therapy, and imagery analysis (intel). That's why I'm anxious to find out what he gets just like he is The first two have a good chance of getting him assigned back to this same base, the third almost guarantees another PCS after tech school. I just want to KNOW, but I am going to have to cool my jets and grow up

    I think the worst part of being a military wife is the waiting and not knowing!
