A couple weeks ago my hubby's company asked for volunteers to go to an additional course of they're choice. Most of the courses were either like dog handlers (no thanks, want my hubby to live!), or out of state. My hubby choose to decline any courses, as he was told he was allowed.

He went into wor today and someone has put his name on a list that will take him to North Carolina for 2 MONTHS! He didn't sign up and now they're telling him he can't do anything about it!

Well, we can't afford rent here and in NC (if I managed to go with him) and since he's due to deploy again just 2 months AFTER getting back here after the course.

Does anyone have ANY real advice that can help us? If they take him I swear I'll have a breakdown! Heck, he might have one! He almost had a panic attack on his way home. He;s only been home from deployment for 2.5 months and already looking at another one. This is all just too damn much!

Is this just what he told you or have you have seen proof? I'm just asking. I mean sometimes guys volunteer for this stuff and don't tell wives. It happens A LOT. 

Kerry --- 7 years ago -

Sorry you need to stuck it up!!! He probably got put on the list becuz if he is below a CPL they probably had noone who wanted to go. This happen to my husband last deployment they wanted him to do the dog handler thing and my husband HATES dog but thank god he was a CPL at the time becuz he ended up giving it to one of his LCPL. There is no gettting out of it if he is on the list. As far as you going there you WONT SEE him its a school!!! You might be able to see him for a few hours over the weekend but thats it. Stay strong tell him to take a computer and skype with him.

Thats true too!!

Also if he plans on staying in the Marine Corp it will look good on his paper work that he did something EXTRA compared to other Marines.

2 months is nothing; plus if he is in school - why would he have to pay rent - he should get per diem - correct?? So he goes there and you stay here. I don't understand that issue. I mean, they go to school and TAD a lot, then train and deploy - that's what they do.

I was gonna say....

why would he have to rent? wouldnt they just put him in student barracks? 

thetug --- 7 years ago -

Nope, he's not staying in. Yes, I heard him talking a CPL about it and he didn't volunteer. 

Kerry --- 7 years ago -

Yes they will put him up, she wants to go with him to school!!! 

kElJoY --- 7 years ago -

he's not staying in.


I'm confused. Then what is the issue? Why would he be going to school if he isn't staying in. That doesn't make sense. 

Kerry --- 7 years ago -

Im sorry he got TOLD he was going. My husband calls this voluntold!!!! but anyways dont stress about it stay busy and you will be fine. But hey he gets extra pay when he is there. 

Kerry --- 7 years ago -

Its for the deployment Kelly, my husband almost got stuck with this last deployment. Instead bring in other people who work with dogs they train the guys in the unit to do the dogs for the deployment. 

miss Onassis --- 7 years ago -

Yes they will put him up, she wants to go with him to school!!!
oohhh I C.

Well, I guess there's nothin you can do then, Tug. He's gonna get sent and there's nothing to be done but suck it up and get through the two months without him. If you can get through a deployment you can do two months. 

IWearHisRank --- 7 years ago -

People have been through worst situations, military life is not easy. If he's on the list to go, there is nothing he or anybody can do. 

kElJoY --- 7 years ago -

Really? That's interesting. Sounds pretty cool to me.

Yeah that is how at least 3/4 did last year, im not sure if they did it this year 

Saltina Cracker --- 7 years ago -

My hubby is going to 5 different schools over the next 7 months starting next week & he'll be home a total of 3 weeks in the next 7 months because it's literally non-stop until he deploys in the fall...Stop complaining. It's what they do. Sorry to sound harsh but there's really nothing ya'll can do. It goes by what the Corps needs. Sorry you got stuck in that situation but atleast you'll have a little time with him. Count ya'll blessings!

Very true!!

Most of the courses were either like dog handlers (no thanks, want my hubby to live!),

whats that supposed to mean? my hubs has been a dog handler for 8 years in the MC and he's still kickin (thank the good lord above) most all jobs are dangerous, but thats what he signed up for...to be a Marine! 

Mary Swanson --- 7 years ago -

hmm.. good luck.. i dont think there's anything he can do to get out of it at this point. Usually when they're told to go to school.. they're supposed to go. 2 months isnt too bad.. seperation can be hard but its better for him to be at school in NC than deployed. They're usually supposed to go to schools in between deployments, thats the best time for them to go. Mine went to school for 3 months not even a week after he checked in here.. lol. It was good for him though and taught him some valuable things. The better trained and schooled they are, the better off they'll be. 

Saltina Cracker --- 7 years ago -

Once my hubs got to a new unit & deployed 3 days later...worser stuff happens! Atleast he'll be in the states safer than overseas right about now. 

MrsH --- 7 years ago -

He's going to gone for two months....jsut be thankful it's just to NC and not a war zone. My hubs is leaving to VA for 2 months very soon....I'll gladly pack his bags for that rather than a deployment. 

Rude Rudy --- 7 years ago -

Does anyone have ANY real advice that can help us?

NOPE!!!! 

manofthehouse --- 7 years ago -

he will get TAD Orders a place to stay ect... ect.. you will not be allowed to go since its only for a little bit. heck he might even get per diem if no barraks or chow hall is available... 

LovinMyBoys --- 7 years ago -

Wow. i dont know. But i do know alot of people get voluntold to do stuff or go somewhere. My husband just got voluntold he was deploying and had to go to training to be a dog handler for road clearance. 

MrsH --- 7 years ago -

you will not be allowed to go since its only for a little bit.

She can go where ever she wants but it will be on her own dime. 

IWearHisRank --- 7 years ago -

Well, we can't afford rent here and in NC

Does anybody sense trust issues?? 

CareBear --- 7 years ago -

Does anybody sense trust issues?? 

Ding ding ding!!

Sorry, it sucks he got told to go to school. But... that's kind of what Marines do when they're not deployed. Suck it up, stay faithful while he's gone, and be happy to see him when he gets home.

who's he with?
