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!
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.

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.

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.
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!

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!
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.
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.
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.
