Thanks for the info, thankful45!
Interesting that you mention knowing the detailer or having connections...
Last week at the gym I met a recently retired Navy Counselor and he offered to help in any way he could. Would it be bad form to ask him to make a connection for my husband so we could get Rota if there are jobs available there?
And is there any way for us to see the open jobs before he finishes school? I know that once he's in the fleet, at some point he can log in the "jobs database" (I don't know the Navy name for it yet) to see where there are openings. Do you know when that access comes?
Thanks!! SO hoping for Spain!!!
It doesn't appear that overseas orders would change any because of cutbacks...those slots will still need to be filled as long as we have bases there. I'd say the chances of him getting a specific station are slim to none unfortunately...unless he knows the detailer or has connections up the chain? But ANYTHING is possible! There were at least 4 being sent over with my son today....We actually are on the way to the airport now to pick him up because they had a last minute re-route of his orders and now he gets a months leave here before shipping out! woohoo!!!
Hello! My husband is just getting started at boot camp and then will go to Meridian in June for A-School for PS. Rota is where we want to get stationed. Part of the reason for joining the Navy was to "see the world", he's a native Spanish speaker, and I can speak at intermediate level (and still learning).
I know we don't get to pick where we get stationed.. Is there anything he can do to increase / improve his chances of getting stationed there? Any way to find out if there are / will be open PS jobs there? Are overseas moves on hold with all the Fed budget cutbacks going on?
Personnel Support Detachment...My son is a PS.
We are also in the early stages of planning a big family vacation to visit him there next summer...I would welcome ANY and all comments and suggestions!
What is PSD?
Stephen has a Spanish phone also. His US plan is on hold as well. Your sailor will have a couple of weeks of talks on getting to know local area, customs etc.
It is a beautiful base, your sailor will find out all the pertinant info.
Hi thankfurl45.My son is there since last year February and he really likes it there. He got a cell phone in Spain and I call him on that phone from our land line which works pretty good. Mostly we stay in contact via facebook (chat and video).
Some with iphones keep them and do the facetime etc. but my son just put his US cell phone plan on hold.
It's a small base and most likely your sailor will find out much more details when getting there. Don't worry too much, this is probably one of the nicest places to be stationed.
Hello all! My son is heading to Rota sometime this month...I have tons of questions!!! First off, can anyone tell me the best cell phone plan or option for my sailor?
