    Nutts I Need Advice Please!

    Advertisements
    This might be long but please bear with me.

    DH went to Marine boot camp 1-12-09 and is still there in a medical platoon because he fractured his pelvis. He was 3 weeks out from graduation. Well, a friend just suggested that I see if he could come home and then go back into OCS since he has a degree and should have gone straight to OCS anyway.

    So, I called, thinking why not give it a shot. Well, the SSgt there said that it possible and the DIs will give DH some crap, but he could come home and then go to OCS when he was ready. The pay difference between a E3 and O1 is over $1000. This sounds like a winner to me but I have some questions.

    1- Should I even mention this to DH? I want to but I don't want to make him feel like he got duped in the first place.
    2- How often do new classes start in OCS?
    3- What do they do with him in the meantime? Is he like a free agent or something?
    4. Does it really take at least 2 years after PDS to get to complete the OCS packet if he sticks with it and graduates?
    5- Anything else I should know?

    This stuff is all so new to me. what to do. Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks Brittany. I have to decide by 5 pm. I wrote him a letter with the info but not sure if I should take it to the post office. $2000 extra a month can get all our debt paid but, well I just don't know what to do. I wish he could talk on the phone.!

    It's a HUGE difference so I don't blame you for wanting answers. Can you contact his recruiter? Perhaps they can help you.

    I can't ask his recruiter because I'd be undoing what his recruiter already did. I called the Officer recruiter and he got DHs name and said he is going to investigate. Now I'm scared that somehow DH will find out that I'm looking into this before he gets my letter. The next class is May 28 and then not again until October so this is crunch time. I think it might not all happen in the next month though so then it would be October and what would he do in the interim?
