    Problems getting orders cut?

    Advertisements
    Is anyone else having problems getting orders cut? I realize that we've got to cut Millington a little slack due to their flooding, but according to them (post flood on their Facebook page), they're operating on a 5-6 month window. For us that's April-May. We've had verbal orders for about 6 weeks now and a friend of ours got verbal orders & official one's in BUPERS inside a week- all happened last week. We're supposed to report in October and they don't report until next March. Could it be because he's a Chief and DH is a 1st Class? I am really trying to be patient, but I told DH if we don't have orders by 6/1, he's got to call. We have a cross-country move, so there's a LOT to do...

    Thanks for listening
    Thanks,
    Nicki

    It's just gonna take time hun. They are trying to play catch up. As well as sometimes things can get overlooked. Best bet would be to just give them a phone call.

    DH is AF and we found out we had orders in Sept last year, only got hard copies 3 weeks ago and we report in July (leave here in 4 1/2 weeks) and it's a cross country move. Be patient, you will get everything done in time, don't stress about it.

    We are waiting for orders as well. In general they like to have orders cut about 90-120 days out (I think it is), but often stuff holds it up. Like we leave here in 9 weeks and we don't have hard copies yet.

    I just hate the waiting because I know where we are going (for at least a short time), but without the hard copies DH can't set anything up for the move.
