When my son was there 2 yrs ago, the school closed for 2 weeks, he was able to come home during that time, it did put him in the hole, they will let students do that. Of course, it was the 11th hour before they officially approved his leave, he booked his flight before it was official since prices were creeping up. The ones who did not go home, could sign up thru the single Marine program, to go spend the  holidays with families in Palm Springs, they also do this for Thanksgiving.

Hi Zj's mom! When my son was there, they had local families who took them in and gave them a meal for the holidays. My son asked for, and was fed red, leave to come home for Christmas, as his school hadn't picked up yet and he was still in the waiting platoon. He went in the hole for leave time , but he didn't care.

Can anyone tell me the scoop on MOS school 29 Palms and whether they normally close school the week of Christmas? Do they get liberty off base, if so where are some places that are within their mile range that they can go to get off post for the weekend? Any information on anything would be helpful. Thanks, J's Mom

Haha, true :)

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
