We are trying to make plane reservations for DS to come home for a short visit this summer and are trying to get ~hard dates so we can buy the plane tickets before they get too ridiculously expensive. Our 4/C DS expects to work during Indoc this summer as an EMT. He is on A split and is in BandCo. So, if all mids have to stay at KP for Commencement, his “summer” at home near the left coast will be very short, like about 4 or 5 days. Hopefully someone on the forum has been through this and can help us with a couple of questions: How early do the EMTs and DIs need to report before the start of Indoc? How likely is it for DS to get special leave to miss Commencement if he is in BandCo (so he can spend a few more days at home)? Does every mid have to work Indoc during their time at KP (i.e. will DS have to work additional summer’s at KP)? Is the requirement any different for A and B splits?
