I'm getting a crash course in just how long things can take with the military.
My husband, who is still working with his recruiter on reenlisting in the Army, and I thought we were waiting around for a PFT with his recruiter's command. We waited two weeks until the recruiter could do a practice PFT with my husband, which was scheduled for the 8th, and then we were to wait an additional two weeks for the "real" one with command. He would then complete his packet and be sent to MEPS and you all know how the rest goes.
We got a phone call just yesterday from the recruiter saying she had it backwards this whole time. He has to do his packet and MEPS first THEN the PFT with command. We wasted almost two weeks when he could have been on to the MEPS stage of things and possibly done with it by now.
We didn't renew out lease because we thought we would be out of here by now so come September 15th, we'll have no where to call ours. We have a plan in place, thankfully, but I feel so silly for waiting all this time and not having a better plan B in place and for waiting for the wrong reasons in the first place.
Lesson learned! Welcome to the military.
I guess I am grateful that the backwards-ness was discovered now, and not two weeks from now as it could have been.
*sigh* Please keep us in your thoughts and prayers. We would really just like this part to be over already.
