    LOA question

    Also, with her nom and her LoA and mostly completed packet, many years they wait to send BFEs until mid-January as a batch. However, other years, BFEs drift out in the Fall. We will learn together what sort of year this is. She has a nomination but should definitely let her congressman and...

    waiver but no LOE/LOA

    Do not think about LOAs or LOEs, pretend he applied to schools that don't have insider groups like this one, and trust that you will know before 1 May. Nothing matters but the BFE. He was interesting enough for waiver to be requested...

    Meeting LOA timelines

    Dodmerb Guru?

    He was very helpful here...but we also worked together in our real jobs--and he was a tremendous supporter of my team's research. Just a wonderful human, a true champion for service members and their families.

    Dodmerb Guru?

    Mr Mullen has retired. I repeat.:Mr. Mullen has retired. Perhaps he will use his free time to answer questions about DODMERB? He is greatly missed by many--and we wish him well. In the meantime, DODMERB questions are best asked in the DODMERB forum.

    You should have someone post this on the WP Moms and WP Dads pages so that new parents can learn about your bus services.

    Also, for anyone coming by because they are curious. The parents club that ALWAYS runs the buses is the WPPC MDDCVA--with stops in Delaware rest stop and along I-95--to DC and Fredericksburg. This is for most of the big 3-Day weekends: Labor Day, Presidents Day...but also for return to Re-Orgy...
