DS is currently in Hawaii for RIMPAC. After RIMPAC, he flies back from HNL to LAX and then from LAX to IAD. Upon arriving into IAD he is on his 3rd summer block to come home. We live in California. DS already checked and they said that when he arrives in IAD he is free to go home and doesn't have to check into academy. Instead of going all the way back to IAD, can't he just take the 1st leg of the flight from HNL to LAX and not go to IAD and just stay so he can start his 3rd block?
