Got the official word that I'll be heading to OCS Feb 14th! Can't wait to meet any of you that are also getting this news
Any advice on how to survive the cold? Buy a woobie and hope it protects you from the chill (and the occasional DI/Chief)?Crap, I endured Great Lakes in the dead of winter!
I heard rumor that all travel expenses are comp'd. But, like I said, this is just rumor. I'll do some digging to see how much of it is true.Mhm. Trying to figure out if I want to chance driving from NC. Will depend in part on the weather I think. Might leave myself extra time to get up there.
Cool. Does that extend to housing (i.e. Hotels) as well? I remember someone telling me how he stayed at the Navy Lodge a few days before check-in and got it comp'd. He said it helped him acclimate pretty well.Yes we are reimbursed for all travel. I think there's a set amount you get based on how far you have to travel. Save all receipts if you're driving.
