    anybody heard about this...

    Advertisements
    So... as many of you know, my husband's AIT will be finished in about 3 weeks. We STILL have no orders, so he went and spoke to the orders people (?) yesterday and they told him to go to AKO and volunteer for certain duty stations and he will get them sooner (we did this like 2 months ago). Anyway, this morning his commander came around telling them they need volunteers to go to Korea... they told them that it would be only offered to communications, but there is a 2 year command sponsored accompanied to Korea. They also were told they would be non-deployable for the 2 years in Korea as well as the families being moved over with them. Anyone heard of this? I always thought Korea was unaccompanied. Anybody been to Korea? I'm a little skepticle about anything his comand says since they have lied to us so much lately. What is everyone's opinions on this?

    Ask me about Down Syndrome... more common than you think...

    Yeah, you can go with him to Korea. My husband just finished OBC and a lot of people from his class were going to Korea...with their families. It was an option offered to us as well, but we wanted to stay in the states. I don't know much else, though.

    I think MOST Korea tours are unaccompanied....but there probably are accompanied tours depending on MOS and what not.

    Korea can be accompanied, be happy that they are offering you instant command sponsorship, most of the time they make you wait it out to be approved. If they are offering it, then most likely it sounds legit. If it is something he wants to take do it now because if no one jumps on it then what will happen is it will turn into mando and all the perks will be removed.


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

    The Unaccopanied tour is only 1 year, accompanied is 2 or 3. My sister is there (not military related, she married a Korean) and she said it is very nice, and lots to do.

    As long as the tour is over a year then you can go. If it's a year or less you can't.
