    Holy @#$%! He's on no picnic that's for sure! Good! It'll keep him good and busy!

    Thank you for the info on that! At least he won't be "bored", that's for sure!

We're sure he's going to be busy, just wondering what he's in for and what he'll be doing. We're not sure if the class is all encompassing as far as "warehouse" or if it's seperated in department's. We did send his laptop down, as he sounded like he was going to need it.
    Unfortunately I am not familiar with that MOS, but most MOS schools consist of the following:

    1. PT
    2. School
    3. Duty
    4. Chow
    5. Field Day
    6. Liberty on the weekends if the command allows and if he's not on duty

    He is lucky that MOS school is short!! My MOS was 6482 (Aviation Electronics) and was a full year!!!

    Clarke- My fiance is a Supply O stationed in Oki currently. It may not be glamorous but it is def important. Pretty much everything their battalion requires from ammo/weapons to vehicle parts goes through their shop. The guys manage and are responsible for huge and expensive accounts. Plus it teaches job and life skills that are important in the cilivian workforce. Be sure to let us know where he ends up for his PDS.

    Hello All! We got a call from our Marine telling us he'd been told he'd be heading for Okinawa. He wasn't sure about leave time after MOS and before he goes (that is if nothing changes, or his chain wasn't jerked). He finishes his MOS 10/Feb/2012. We're wondering if he'll be going over via transport rather than a commercial flight (since he has no passport as yet).

    And, some of his buddies were found out about some drinking the day they heard their duty station. We're trying hard to discourage him from the "culture" of the "hard-drinking Marine, especially since he still 18. Fortunately, he was helping a female MArine with something, and wasn't involved, but he got caught up in the disciplinary action's of base restriction and firewatch (which is how thing's go). We'd hate to see him get an adsep or something, then have to return home, having lost everything he'd worked hard and long to do and get.

    Unfortunatley it is hard to ignore "the life". I remember a drill instructor tell us, "you'll either drink, smoke or do both! Some of you will end up pregnant too!"

    It's up to the individual Marine to make the right decision.

    You are forgetting, he flies with a Marine Corps Identification card and doesn't require a passport while on active duty traveling under orders.

    Do you know what unit he will be attached to? DF traveled to Okinawa on a military charter flight, he was able to request leave before departing. He will probably get a government no fee passport that he can use while traveling on orders, but I would apply for the civilian passport as well. I leave for Okinawa on 2/10 for visit, I'll let you know how it goes.

    Can he apply for a passport while over there through the embassy or something? I know even here in the U.S. it takes some month's for the process. We don't know division as yet, probably won't know until next week sometime.

    And Sgt. Morales? You're right, it will be up to him. We're only hoping he takes into consideration what he has to lose. He's in a way "better" place than I was at his age. That as well as family and people that know and love him.

    I've got a "weird" question. Our Marine is supposed to be headed for Okinawa later this month. What kind of "duty" is it classified as? Sea Duty, Oversea's Duty?
