    Japan??

    Advertisements
    DH got orders to Japan today... that's all. No base or anything yet he doesn't even know if it will be accompanied, but he does know its for 2 years. Could anyone give me info on what goes on next? What all happens with an OCONUS move assuming I will be going too... What bases are accompanied? Anything would be great! Thanks Ladies!

    the reason behind it being 3 for the MC instead of 2 is because it was getting really expensive to sponsor the families

    there is naval base yokuska (SP) - sasebo - MC base iwakuni (were we were) - and we went to oki for a little while for ob care

    Last I checked, not sure if it's still the same. That sailors E-3 and below are ineligible for accompanied OCONUS orders. I'm sure there's ways around it and ways to get command sponsored but

    Wait. I'll find the document for ya

    DH just got orders to Japan. I can go along with him, he's E-4. All I know is it's a BUNCH of paperwork for the family to go. And a bunch of doctor appointments and a bunch of shots! It's a pian. We'll be there for 3+ years.

    Like I said, I'm sure there are ways around it but I can't be completely sure. I think your DH probably got verbal orders. When he gets his written orders it'll be a lot more clear, like whether you'll be command sponsored, how long, what base.. All of that.

    Plus if they are verbal orders, it's still tentative and can change
