DH put on E5 Sept 1st (YAY), and they had always told us once he does, he will get orders. We got our orders to Alaska. January 2012 is his end of service date or whatever it's called. Alaska is a 3 year tour. So, they tell him he needs to extend for a few months (since he can't re-up yet). Ok, I knew this was going to happen.
He is deployed right now...He has 30 days to extend or he loses the assignment. They want it done in person! There is nowhere there for him to do this. WTF people. Why would you give someone orders when you can see that they A) need to extend AND B) are deployed.
They are suppose to let him know tomorrow what they are going to do. I'm going to be SOOOOO mad if this falls through. We've been here for almost 5 years. It's time to go!!!!
