Graduation Logistics

Son is in his final MOS phase with a tentative grad date in July. The difference between airline prices three months before vs. a couple of weeks before will be significant, especially given the number of family members we hope to have traveling (not to mention accommodations). So when can we expect a firm date? Yes, something can go south, but he's been successful with every previous phase, including SOCM and SUT, so I'm willing to bet on him. The only variable is the actual grad date. When does that get settled?

You would have to ask him his class number. also all depends on what his MOS is we have a back log on some MOS's and a shortage of others.
He still has Robin Sage after MOS phase. Never count eggs in the basket while walking to your house always a stone to trip over.
NM he is a 18D

Son calls up this morning. They had 47 guys for 40 slots. Cadre asked for volunteers to wait for the next rotation. Two guys volunteered due to things like weddings and babies. There being no more volunteers, they said, "Okay, this row is waiting for the next round." He happened to be sitting in that row.

So, he's waiting until March to start. In the meantime, he's been told he will shadow the class, including sitting in on surgeries. He just doesn't get his patient and can't actually do anything. There are man's plans, there are God's pans, and there are the Army's plans. The first two sometimes make sense.

There's a long story that I don't fully understand, and would not get into even if i did, but he's back in. Summation, it's the Army being the Army.

I would consider this question answered very well by events.
