I hate DH's new unit.

They have been nothing but trouble since he got with them. First they didn't get his orders going until a month after they were supposed to start, so we went a whole month with no pay, and now I just called Tricare to see if we are due to get our Tricare started when DH goes on orders, and they said his unit hasn't updated us in DEERS yet. Oh my freaking gosh. I'm so so so sick of it. I'm praying they get it updated soon, and we get it when we are supposed to. 

I just needed to vent is all. Lol. Thanks.

 1st-love your avatar, 2nd-I hope they get it all straightened out soon. That month with no pay would have REALLY irritated me!

 Um, thats all things that your husband needs to take responsibility for. Its not his units job to make sure you're updated in DEERs. And if he was having pay issues, she should have gone to his S1 and Finance and gotten that taken care of.

And really, Im not sure what you mean by his new unit didnt get his orders going? Orders for what?

Umm we are all in DEERS. He is NG and when he goes on title 10 orders his UNIT has to call them and tell them to start Tricare. I think I would know seeing as how I JUST called Tricare. Orders to deploy. National Guard is much different than regular Army.

Haha love Daryl! And thank you. It's just frustrating. There is nothing we can do about it, it's all on that damn unit. Lol

Sorry, but that's how it works. No orders, no pay, no insurance. Why did he report if he didn't have orders??

Because he didn't need orders at first. He got paid NG MUTA pay, and then they switched to the orders and by that point he was there and couldn't leave, because believe me, we considered it.

Ok, I understand now. Wow, that sucks!! I know it's easier said than done, but he needs to put his foot down & demand orders. I know a wife who's husband died in a similar situation & she had to involve congress to get her benefits. True story. Not trying to scare you, but it happens.
