    Question

    Advertisements
    The FRO just emailed me letting me know he checked on DH reenlistment packet He said

    "checked on his reenlistment packet this morning and his monitor at Headquarters Marine Corps still has it on his desk."

    Is that like the low man on the totem poll? Or is that who makes the decision? Somewhere in between ?

    Sorry if thats a silly questions I just have no idea

    Thank you!

    umm from my understanding, the monitor is the one who decided who goes where and when...so if im not mistaken, and i might be, the monitor is the one who decides on who reenlists, when and where....

    My husband is also doing the reenlistment thing and we keep checking all the time, too. I don't fully understand all the monitors, but I can tell you what his career planner has been telling him.

    My husband is doing a lat move from infantry to MWR (the guys that run the PX's). Once the full packet was submitted, it went to the MWR monitor and then to the 0311 monitor. Career planner said that once it goes to 0311 monitor, it's usually a sure thing... that they just sign off on it (saying that he is getting released from 0311 MOS). Headquarters is where they do the reenlist stuff, so if it's there, that is probably a good sign. It seems like the monitors just sign off on the packets, so I'm thinking that is good for you. Also, the reenlistment stuff and orders come from Headquarters.

    Anyway, my husband was told this morning that they JUST starting signing off on things today (as of last week only 3 reenlistments had been approved in the entire corps... at least, that is what the career planner said). So, husband said that we should hear something this week, so I'm thinking you will as well.

    haha...oh ok.

    if you knew the name i could see if DH could put a word in with his (they are close..) and find out what the stinking hold up is

    but for you and your never ending patience lol. i would be going insane.
    dh did say though that as long as he hasnt been in any trouble it should be approved.

    what is his rank?
