I'm not new to the bump, but I've never posted in this board. I have 2 daughter one is almost 9yo and my younger daughter will turn 1 in 2 weeks. We are currently stationed in JAX, FL been here for 6 years. I have 2 mortages (one house in FL and another one in VA) & I work FT. DH window to pick orders closed 2m ago. We wanted to stay in Jax, FL but there were no order for his rate and for sea duty. So, he's been talking to his detailer over the phone since then.Anyways to make the story short, the detailer just called and said he need to pick from what's left for this month. Washington state, Lemore, California, or Japan. Then he said Washington is not possible because it cost the NAVY16K to move us. Lemore is a horrible place to go according to my husbands piers who have been there. So Japan is left. To what the detailer said it will be 2 years unaccompanied. I'm so upset. I've been tru 4 deployments, but having him away for 2 years, out of our life. DH's Chief advised him to pick Japan and once he gets there he can ask for command sponsorship "a request for us to go there" sth like that.
Has anybody done this? or know about this???
I appreciate your suggestions
PS: Sorry for grammar, bumping from phone.
