You must save the form letter you get from your SR. It will have important information on it including the password so you can download the parking pass when it's time to go to PIR. Even if you rent a vehicle to drive to PIR from your hotel, you will need the parking pass. SAVE THAT FORM LETTER!

That is all...stand down!

Spoke with Out Processing.  They will not tell us her itinerary at all.   They did say they were aware of her request to be sent to Minneapolis. Stating privacy issues.

Deborah signed a release for information for legal and medical but we were advised that those did not apply to travel information.  The stereotypical government employee comes to mind.

Craig,

We have spoken to her about that.  She has asked.  No response to her request for her paperwork. 

Comment by Craig on February 28, 2012 at 10:12am

Merill, 

Besides doing what the others say (contacting the Representative or Congressman) you need to do something WAY more important.  When you daughter calls make dang sure you tell her to keep all of her paperwork.  Since this wasn't a pre-existing condition she can file for VA compensation.  This is money she is entitled to.  All she needs to do is contact your local DAV office (or others) and ask for assistance in filing a VA claim.  The DAV is totally awesome! and it's free.

I too am sorry Merill.

Some people should find a new job versus doing it poorly. The recruiters in our office here either were lazy or incompetent. Maybe both. Seems both had a severe case of short-timers attitude. They never returned calls or deleted voice mail which was often full. Just glad my son had patience & saw through their dereliction. That was his first lesson with the Navy, patience & perseverance. There are many good skilled sailors doing a fine job!

We can tell that you're frustrated Merrill. But there is only so much that you can do now. Just follow the rules and hopefully she can give it another go. Keep us posted on how this all comes out.

Comment by Merrill Tucker on February 28, 2012 at 6:48am

You are correct.  My apologizes.  My issue lies directly with the situation and personnel involved.  Not to extend that issue to the whole.  Think first, type second, review third, then erase and do again.

Comment by NavyDads Admin (Paul) on February 28, 2012 at 5:23am

to say you've lost respect for the armed forces is very short sighted...you may have lost respect for command and the way they handled things, but please do not disparage the dedication and sacrifice of the thousands of sailors, soldiers and airmen that put their lives on the line every day.

Comment by Merrill Tucker on February 28, 2012 at 5:16am

Spoke with medical, legal and SEPS.  Even asked them to have our daughter call back the other day.  No call.  No idea if she received the message or not. Spoke with someone last night that provided us with a contact in Out Processing.  Also was advised by VA that she get her medical packet and hand carry it out with her.  My wife has contacted the office of Michele Bachmann.  I had a lot of respect for the armed services until this occurred.

Contact your CONGRESSMAN, unless they're on vacation.  :)
