    Confused overseas????

    Advertisements
    So my husband is still in AIT, but they have been throwing out possibilities of duty stations to him during his briefing. My question is if he gets stationed overseas, how does that work with our children and I joining him? I have heard that it can take up to six months for us to go wherever he is, or that we would not be able to go at all.... anyone with dependents who has been stationed overseas who can give me the 411 would be greatly appreciated. I am a nervous wreck thinking about it all lol.

    I think it depends on the duty station and on his rank. Some orders overseas are unaccompanied (Korea, I believe), while some are accompanied (Japan). May depend though on his rank.

    Not a lot of information, I know.

    Hopefully someone Army will be by to answer this for you. I know the Army regs on this are VERY different from Navy

    It will depend on Duty Station (some do not allow dependants), his rank (some you have to be E3 or E4 to have dependants with you), his command and your medical and dental clearance. though

    First I would say, do NOT freak until you get an assignment... no use worrying over nothing.

    Otherwise what everyone else said... rank, location, branch etc all play into it.

    Korea is not "unaccompanied" per se. There are command sponsorship slots available. If there is one open for his job, then he should get CS granted. There are thousands of families living here and as a matter of fact, I saw a family with seven kids at the commissary two days ago and my DH's friend got CS to Korea with nine kids!!
