The doctor declined us for Japan, and now it's being sent to the overseas screeners.
The way they were talking made it sound like we're screwed. She was being so contradictory also. Like saying one got sent back because they hadn't been vax'ed for H1N1, but then told me that if I was willing to do an alternative schedule that they would probably put us through??????????
That makes no sense.
Then telling me that smallpox and measles are common there...umm babies aren't routinely vax'ed for small pox and you can get measles here too!!!
I'm just so tired. So defeated.
She said repeatedly that they will send him without us, and at best we can hope that they will change it a one year tour.
I don't know what the final word will be but the doc said that there are NO exemptions for PCS'ing.
I don't know how to fight this, who to fight.....
It shouldn't be a fight in the first place. I had the regs from EmmelineII with me and they didn't care.
My husband's gunny said she would put in a fight for us, but I don't know if that will do any good..
ETA: WE'RE APPROVED!!! We're going to Japan together.
The doctor originally said no, but the overseas screeners, the final decision people approved it anyway, no fighting necessary. YES!!!!
