    Any other Selectee Wives that haven't had any contact from Command?

    Advertisements
    Well I shouldn't say that I haven't had any contact. I heard from one of the Senior Cheifs the day we found out that DH made Cheif. But other than that, there's been nothing. I've been reading other posts about Selectee get-togethers and other Chief wives taking the new ones "under their wings" and such and I'm so jealous! Our command isn't doing any of that. My DH even asked one of the Master Chiefs if there was going to be anything for the spouses and he told DH that if I wanted to do something, more power to me. I'm thinking about putting a cookout/potluck together for the Selectees and their families at a local park, but I don't want to overstep my boundries.

    Anyone else experiencing this?

    Not me. When my DH made it the entire command was involved. He is helping out with the new ones this time around. Does you DH have a sponsor? If so maybe he/she has a spouse you can talk to.

    While I have a pretty good supportive group, I think if you got ahold of the other selectee wives and invited them over it would be really nice.

    I've had no contact with DH's command other than him relaying messages about how I can contact his sponsor whenever I need to. We have a BBQ Thurs. and I'll be at the spouse meeting Sat.

    Could you maybe have you husband speak with his sponsor about organizing something?

    Well, I'm what I am and I'm what I'm not
    and I'm sure happy with what Iíve got
    I live to love and laugh alot
    and thatís all I need

    i know that our CMC said that he wanted to meet with us so one of the selectees and his wife set up a bbq for us. i was told that we would get a schedule of events but i havent gotten that

    oh and i dont think you would be overstepping anything to set up a picnic or something

    I haven't had any contact either. of course we aren't on a normal base. I pretty much expected it to be like this.


    I will miss you SOS...
    Please be wary of what you post remember OPSEC is not just another acronym.

    He does have a sponsor (2 actually), but nothing from them or their spouses. So I guess I'm going to be the one spearheading the BBQ thing. Now I just have to get a pavillion and everyone's contact info.
