    Time off for moving new wife?

    Advertisements
    DF and I were talking recenlty about our options for our honeymoon. We figure we could have the honeymoon here in our hometown and then have him fly back to base and have my drive my stuff out there OR we could have both of us drive together and then have the honeymoon out near base (we'd try for the beach cabins there). DF says that he has time off to move me out there.
    Questions:
    -Is this true?
    -How much time would he get off? (we'd be moving from Oregon to NC)
    -Does it matter that the courthouse wedding is in April and then I'd be moving in late June/ early July?
    -Can he take that time with leave? (as in, could he take leave for the wedding and join it with the moving leave, or would he have to go back to base and check in first)

    My husband and I did something similiar.
    He came up to Jersey and spent a week of his PTO on our wedding and honeymoon in February of last year. Then in May he came up for another week to visit his family and friends and help me move down to Florida. We did the drive down together and everything.

    He will probably have to take leave. They give you time (10 days) to house hunt when you PCS to a base, but if he is already stationed there and just coming back with a wife I think he will have to take leave for time off.

    His leave will be two different set of leave papers since it is two different time frames that the events will be happening.

    you can take 29 days of leave (if you have it) without the commanders approval.
    sry I was confused about what you were asking.
    He would have to take leave for him to come home for the wedding and drive with you.

    He still needs to have permission though. His leave has to be approved and signed off by someone in his chain of command who has the authority to allow it.

    well duh lol and he should know that though. Just saying that under 29 days is alot easier to get approved. when you go over 30 then you have to explain why, what, and everything else.

    Ok, just clearing it up because your post confused me.

    Depending his base he will have to explain the when, where and why anyhow. Especially if he is planning on being across country.

    Ok.
    We figure it will just be about 2.5 weeks of leave for the wedding, honeymoon and moving.
