And I am a fulltime IT professional, so I know what I am doing.
    I didn't mean anything antagonistic by it, just that if she's having problems with the site, maybe its not an IE/FF issue.

        Oh I know you didn't. Don't worry about it.

            Update:
            Finally heard from his unit today. Apparently they never received any paperwork from the readiness NCO from RSP so there was no expectation of him last month. They moved from Atterbury to the Franklin Armory in early November but no one notified the switch board and the voice mail messages were not updated, so no one at Atterbury really knew anything.

            so all the worry and they never even knew he was supposed to be there.... classic.

              Typical! Better get use to it! The increase in technology available the military hasn't improved communication at all trust me.

                What? Poor communication within the government? Never.

                      Have him ask about making up the drill weekend. Since he wasn't coded a "U" it should be pretty easy.

                        Since his paperwork from basic hadn't been processed yet, he was probably actually still coded "T", so that may make it more difficult to make up.

                          He asked about making up Dec drill when they called him yesterday. The person he talked to said not to worry about it. What ever that means. He has a drill date for Jan so Im sure he will find out more then.

                            This varies by unit, but sometimes you can come in during the week to lend a hand for special projects (usually involving supply) and get credited for a missed drill or upcoming drill that you will miss. And by "will miss", I mean...you've been authorized to. There is no banking of drill time or anything like that.

                            Another common way of making up a drill is by showing up a day or several hours early on an "advance party" that typically goes ahead of the main unit to setup tents, ranges, etc. The military formally calls these SUTA (Split Unit Training Assembly), pronounced "soota."

                            Word of advice for your husband: View authorized SUTAs as a huge favor from your chain of command. Do not make a habit of them. And always live up to the agreed makeup dates. NCOs and officers have a tendency to remember the unreliable ones for a long long time.

                            Luckily, December drills are typically 1 day of actually doing stuff (likely administrative junk) and 1 day of holiday festivities.
