Same. Pretty nervous because wife and I are handling her July 22nd due date but not sure how difficult it would be to move the whole family down before WOCS. I have to reread all of the Rucker Housing thread to find any important information regarding my situation.

Active duty? If so it’s just a regular PCS, move the family like normal, find a house and report on your report date.

My wife is due Sep.19 which is like 7 days after graduation so I feel your stress.

Had a guy in class who's wife gave birth during the last week. all requirements but the APFT were completed and he went to the hospital with his wife and the day after, came and took the pt test and had his own graduation ceremony. As long as you keep them informed they'll work with you. Pretty sure he had his phone the last 2 weeks also but not sure.

I'll be there. I hear there are two report dates, one for PCS and one for WOCS. Do we receive a PCS report date or just backwards plan from our WOCS report date? Taking into account 10 days for finding housing and accrued leave. I'm AD but never PCS'd before

Yeah I'm in your boat this is my first PCS so everything is a bit new to me. I'm waiting on my request for orders so I can start planning and asking questions through my COC.

The cadre is pretty reasonable. We had a soldier whose wife had a complicated pregnancy and he was allowed to keep his phone on him. My wife and I had just found out she was pregnant a month earlier and I was allowed to use my phone while she was at her second ultrasound. Keep your class leadership informed and as long as the run ti up the TACs will work with you. There are many valid criticisms of the course, but the TACs were great and do care about the individual soldiers.

The whole first week (after integration day) you pretty much don't have your phone. After that it was permitted 3 specific times throughout the week. They are to be locked in the security room when not in use except for class leadership and historians (who keep theirs on airplane mode). Some classes let students lock them in their PSAs after the first week I guess... getting caught using it for prohibited purposes would be an integrity violation that would get you set back. And it does happen.

All that said, the course is constantly in flux and there has been a lot of student push back on the phone policy. I doubt it's changed since May though. Cadre also has a lot of discretion.

Nope some computer error has prevented me and a buddy from getting registered with milsuit or blackboard. Should be fixed, check security clearance status, and know by tomorrow. It sounds very unlikely we would start Wednesday with zero in processing done.

I almost was booted from this class date because of a security clearance issue, apparently you go off the investigation start date not the eligibility date which no one at my unit knew. Got everything done and submitted in like four hours haha.

 

There is 10 of us aviation this class, Im the only reservist with a set airframe currently, everyone else is is 153a. So hopefully I can get in touch with the reserve liaison and get a WOBC date with some of yall.

I dont believe so. Just waiting for the field investigation, it started in March. I believe that I was thorough in my 86 and have nothing more than traffic tickets.

I would talk to your security manager, my clearance was expired, received my sf86 paperwork and my Psip work sheet on a Friday, by Wednesday I had a continuation which is allowed and counts as your security clearance.

 

Did you have one before or is this your first one?

Ahhhhh that might be why, if you had one already and it had just expired, the continuance would be granted.

 

Needless to say I worked on secret for three years before my investigation was completed. I dont see why you wouldnt be allowed to attend if the paperwork is already submitted and investigation has been started.
