Well, I've been home for almost a week, and man it has been great. I've got my orders, got transportation set up, and only a few days from beginning my clearing. I can't wait. There are a few things I'd like to pass on to everyone, I'm sure most of you may know already, but for those of you who don't. Family Seperation Pay, make sure you file for it, your entitled to it. It should be around $400.00. All you need is your travel orders, your travel voucher after you close out your DTS thing, and then the Family Seperation Pay form (DD 1561). It should show up on the next LES as long as you get it in before the deadline. Second, as soon as you get back to your base, go to the person in charge of cutting the orders, it took me 5 minutes to get the orders in my hands so I could walk right over to the transportation office to set up my dates. Also, the DLA, I checked on that, you can get an advance which will help out with the move, I know for an E5 w/ Deps its a lil more than $1,900.00.

Right now I'm just waiting for the days to trickle by, which they have been, I was only at work for 3 days and it felt like a week. I also just had my wisdom teeth pulled out and these days have been going even slower. I know there are things I need to do, but most of it I need to do while I'm clearing. But all is well since school, I think the weirdest thing is that everyone now asks me all the time abour reenlistment stuff, like I'm an expert on that stuff, lol, but it's all good. Well I hope everyone is doing good.
