    Housing for fiance

    Hello.I am the proud mom to my marine Adam. Adam just got transferred to Camp Pendleton from Okinawa where he served 2 years. While in Japan, he met someone he wants to marry and we are all thrilled!! Problem is, she is from another country and coming to visit him in California for 3 months. They want to get married while she's here, but don't know how long it will take. They cannot afford to pay a hotel for lodging, while they are figuring out housing with the Marine Corps. Do you know of any other resources to find housing for 3 months? I have tried all the online resources (expedia, craigslist, vrbo, etc) and there's nothing that seems affordable or close to Pendleton.If you can point me in some direction, I would greatly appreciate it.THanks,GinnySee More

    To ship or not?

    My son was scheduled to ship tomorrow, but was informed on Friday that his ship date has been delayed.  Is this normal?  My husband and I took time off from work and had a big going-away party planned.  My son has not been given a new ship date, they told him maybe next month or possibly October.  He says that he passed all of the fitness exams and did make weight.  He was told that it is a "numbers thing".  What does that mean?  My husband tried to reach the recruiter, but we have not received a return call yet.  Help?See More

    "Getting out after 4 years as a LCpl is very common in some MOSes. There's even a cartoon online called "Terminal Lance," which refers to the fact that many infantry Lance Corporals expect to get out before picking up Corporal."
