DF is rejoining the RAAF this month as some of you already know.
He's been calling them at least once a week making sure theyve got the last of his security clearance paper work etc' and we've been finding it really difficult to get a hold of the woman he normally speaks to.
He finally gets a hold of someone last week and they say to him 'oh you havent done your fitness test yet'
he said ' uh no last time i was in i did it on the day i enlisted and left for basic training'
she says 'no we dont do it that way anymore you sposed to do it 8 weeks before you leave so you'll have to do it next Tuesday!'
which is fine,we would have liked to have been told that,since no-one told him,or sent a letter and it wasnt in his paperwork but whatever.he knows he's ready so thats cool.
But then she says 'oh your a re-entry so your just going straight to wagga and not doing basic training right?'
DF was like 'huh? i was told that since its been over 5 years since i was last a member i had to do it again??'
This womans like nope,not what it says here!
The other woman told him he had to and shes on leave so we have NO IDEA whats going on.The only reason he is sposed to do it again was because he could have gone last October and gone straight to his posting but THEY lost his criminal check paperwork etc and the 5 year cut off lapsed so they told him he would have to wait until the next basic training intake this APRIL.
Im pretty sure this woman is wrong and he'll have to repeat BT but im feeling totally in the dark now. Ive been gearing myself up to be alone with DD for the 10 and a half weeks.I dont want to be getting my hopes up thinking he may not have to do it.
But since he's meant to leave on the 22nd of this month and they are the Defence force i figuered they would at least know what theyre doing with their enlistee's.
God,im going to laugh if they contact us after he passes his fitness test and tell us were moving in a few weeks and he's not going to basic training and that was just a mistake.Im so not prepared to move yet.my house is a disaster zone
