    Sponsor?

    Advertisements
    Ok, so we are a little mad at the fact that we are pcsing in a month and still havent received a sponser. My husband got orders to Barksdale in October. He stated that he wanted a sponsor when he accepted them. 4 weeks later we hadn't heard anything so when we were at the moving meeting (or what ever its called), we told the lady that he hadn't got a sponsor yet. She said she would look into it. That was the last time we heard from her. So at the end of December my husband called the squadron that he was PSCing into at Barksdale and told them that he wanted a sponsor. The woman told him "O, we didn't even know you were coming - we'll get you one as soon as we receive the paperwork". Ok, fair enough. Well, now it is less than 1 month to go and we still haven't received anything. My husband is at tech school and his instructor gave him the number of someone who is working where he will be - he calls and she says they still don't know that he's coming. The most annoying this about this is that a guy that he is in tech school with had his orders changed 2 weeks ago to Barksdale too. In the same squadron and everything. He called them the day after he received his amended orders and guess what? They know all about him and they've assigned him a sponsor!!! WTF?! What should we do? We don't understand why my husband is unkown, yet a guy who got his orders 2 weeks ago has everything set up for him! O - and I cant spell sponsor in the title!!!

    Are you asking how to go about getting an Air Force Sponsor? I would suggest having your DH fax a copy of his orders to the new unit and then asking for a sponsor.

    I'm army, so I'm not sure how Air Force sponsorship works. I know in the Army, sometimes you get one, sometimes you don't. We always prepare to do every thing alone, just in case.

    we asked for a sponsor when we moved here and we didn't get one, you really have to get on top of his new unit about it.

    Yep, you don't always get a sponsor even if you ask for one. Some sqds are really prepared for them and some just don't care.

    Honestly, sponsors are overrated. It's better to get the info yourself... go to www.afcrossroads.com and look up Barksdale. You can also go to http://www.ci.shreveport.la.us/ or http://www.barksdale.af.mil/library/ for a lot of useful information.

    PM me if you need additional help...

    The Airman and Family Rediness Centre is in charge of the sponsor programme, I would contact them about it.
