    Question

    Advertisements
    Hi! I'm new here and I THINK this is the right place to put this question. My husband is active duty Marine Corps and will be submitting his re-enlistment package on the 1st. How long does it normally take for packages to come back approved? They told him it should be relatively soon but friends are telling me several weeks. I'm not sure if I consider several weeks to be relatively soon! He's also currently on a combat deployment, so I don't know if that affects it.

    It should be only a week, maybe 2 if he's deployed.

    A friend whos in Iraq submitted his and it took several months... I think it might depend on the job.

    The friend is a Marine...

    My husband is doing the same, and the career planner told him it would be a couple weeks, but I'm not sure I believe him.

    Is your husband submitting for a lat move or for his primary MOS? If it's his primary and it's considered a fast filling MOS, the MARADMIN says that they will start telling people in August. I'm not sure if that applies to everyone who submits in July, or if that ONLY applies to fast filling MOS's. The MARADMIN isn't clear.

    I've been reading up on this as much as I can because I have a million questions, too.

    Thanks so much ladies! They're actually telling him two weeks tops now. It's his primary MOS technically but it's for a B billet.

    Two weeks sounds right... that's about what we were also told.
