If you let him drive your car, you can have fun in a new car while he's visiting.

Comment by sues on October 9, 2014 at 2:26pm

Yes, good idea, thanks.  One of the issues is that we have only 1 car and would need it for work and such.  He wants to go visit friends, and do things in and around town while he is here.

Comment by Dilyhi on October 9, 2014 at 2:09pm

Since he is only 20, it might be easier to let him drive one of your vehicles since your insurance would cover him. Then you could rent a car to drive if you don't have an extra vehicle, and your insurance would cover you on the rental car. He could still pay for the rental car if money were an issue, but you could drive it while he drove your car. I don't know of any rental companies that rent to someone under 21, but they might make an exception since he is military, but it would cost him a lot of extra $$$ to buy the rental agencies policy.

Hi, my son is overseas and plans to come home for a few weeks over Christmas holiday.  His US driver's license is current, but he doesn't have private auto insurance and wants to rent a car when he's here.  He is 20. Is there mechanism for a short term rental/getting insurance for a few weeks that isn't outrageously expensive?  Most rental companies don't want to rent to under 21.  Just thinking others may have had this experience.  thanks!!  Sue

My son was at 29 Palms for over a year; first MAT, then BEC, then trained as 2821. His PDS is now Camp Pendleton outside San Diego. He has been there a few months. Needless to say, after living in the desert of 29P he is quite happy to be in SD now. The summer in 29P can be brutal with temps well over 100. Red and black flags are flown when it is dangerous to be outside due to weather.

Wow, that's great  he loves Okinawa and wants to stay. My son is not overly fond of the base in HI, he has 3 yrs there but can request after 2 to be sent back to the mainland and that is what he is going to do. He has friends in Okinawa, and they love it over there also.

Comment by willow on July 30, 2014 at 3:15am
My son was 2821, and he started Sept 2012, graduated the end of August 2013 and went to Okinawa. He loves it there and has requested an extension of his duty there. If approved, he will be there for a total of 3 years instead of 2.
