Well I guess I'm leaving...
« on: July 25, 2011, 08:36:37 PM »
Operational readiness inspection. They knew about it for months. They decide to tell me today I'm flying out tomorrow. I had a shitload of stuff to do. Now I need to go to Wal Mart and buy toiletry items that they never told me I HAD to have for the inspection, until today when they up and decided I am going to be a part of it. 1 month after I get back from a deployment. Thanks for letting me know with plenty of time to get stuff done. I'm proud to be a part of a practice inspection.  :slap2:

We can't do shit! Were sectioned off at the airport, can't leave, eat MRE's for a week, run around in MOPP 4 then get quarantined to our rooms for the night. I wouldn't care if they didn't tell me TODAY that I'm going TOMORROW

Can't do shit?  That'll have extra meaning after a few MRE's.  Which will be a good thing while sweating your ass off in that JSLIST gear.  


Glad to see you are at least earning your wings.

Giving soldiers 1 day notice of a movement.  That doesn't sound like the Military/Government at all. :confused:

I got a whole two days notice when I had to head somewhere earlier this month.  Couldn't even make flight arrangements so I made a 7+ hour drive.  Oh, and GSA's mileage rate hasn't increased to the $0.555/mile that the IRS has.

I thought that if you had orders you could basically commandeer a seat on a commercial flight? Or is that only for overseas deployments?

I don't think that works in any case.  Military is pretty strict about traveling on orders as it is and you can usually make flights within a very short period of time.  I just didn't want to bother with the hassle and it wasn't a bad drive anyway.

Thats the one thing about the military.  Whether its emergency leave or orders...they'll find you a seat on a shity plane asap.

I think by pretend, he means its an readiness drill, not an actual deployment.

Bingo. I can tell you all about that stupid shit :lol:

Oh, yeah, inspectors weren't in chem gear, they made it a point to leave us in full gear outside until the 1st person fell out. I don't think they're allowed to do that...
