    It is true a lot of times they have a certain amount of time to get from one duty station to the next and it be on the military's dime.

    Why would he not want to come where you and his child is? You need to talk to HIM about it and not just make assumptions about what he is thinking or feels.

    it may be true that they will only pay for him to go from Japan to GA- if you did not do an ERD the orders will have been written for all of you to go from Japan to GA.

    if you have an ERD- they are being jerks and not allowing him to move his family - but they still can tell him he has to to from japan to GA.

    I agree. The military's plans change day by day. When DH was heading to a new base for training, he called me and said he could come home for "x" amount of time. He bought a plane ticket and packed his bag to leave the next day. A couple hours later, he called back and said he wasn't coming home, training was at a DIFFERENT base! So we had to cancel plane ticket and he was on a flight to a new base the next day.
    Moral of the story, don't count on plans until they've actually happened
    Talk with your hubby. You'll be at your new base with DH before you know it.

    yes, it makes sense that they will fly him from Japan to GA. It doesn't make sense that they will fly you and your DD from CA to GA. Normally, the military does not fly you within CONUS on a PCS.

    He might be able to get his orders to include circuitous travel, which would allow a stop in CA.

    When we PCS'd here from Japan, DH took leave in route and we were able to go back to his home of record. They told us we had to schedual our flights from his HOR to this base when we got there, but we ended up driving and everything was covered. If Cali is his HOR, he could check into taking LIR and doing it like that and being able to travel with you
