    Confused mom here! DS leaves for 1st Regiment CIET at 6AM Friday.
    1. CIET orders: He only has unsigned orders. Was told that signed orders would be emailed to him once they were received from CC. I have heard (Reddit) mixed information about orders, that he will not receive signed orders until he arrives at Knox. He has tried emailing his HR person, but has not gotten a response. He will be calling Monday, but does anyone have info about orders for CIET (in general).
    2. Airline tickets: He was told to confirm with the airline 3 days prior, that the govt confirms with the airlines 72 hours prior (this is actually written on his travel pages where his flight info is written). However, the airline(United) confirmation page (with his actual flight/seat info, etc) says not yet ticketed and that the flight will be cancelled if not confirmed by tonight. Just noticed it, so cannot get a hold of HR person until Monday. Does anyone know how this works?

    Not having been through this before, and being one who plans ahead and double checks everything like that, I am a bit worried! I know, welcome to the Army....

    OK, apparently his HR person is at Knox working...she just sent the orders ("authorization memo" in place of orders or something like that). However, we still are wondering about my question #2 above. We will see what happens at midnight! And,no, I will not be waiting up!

    Did everything work out with the flight? I noticed mine says the same thing. I leave 15 June so need to get this figured out if there is something I need to do!

    Thanks!

    This morning it said ticket confirmed - so I guess Army did what they said - confirmed it 72 hours ahead. His HR person also sent an email confirmation which said the same thing.
