Working out and taking the MCI and MCMAP courses are other ways of staying busy too while Marines wait to class up. My Marine enjoyed his gym time.
Best wishes to your Marine as he adapts to this new environment and making new friends some of which may follow him to their PDS.

Once your Marine graduates from MCT he is no longer under their command. He will have to report to the MOS school to find out a) if it is backed up b) if the command at MOS allows RA. Getting RA requires several approvals. One, the Recruiter has to need the help, the Recruiter's supervisor needs to agree help is needed and the Command at MOS school has to release the student. Travel for RA is not paid by the USMC so that is something else he will need to consider.

There may be needs of the Corps duties the arriving Marines cam do.

It looks like there will be a bit of time between MCT graduation and the beginning of my son's MOS training (about 10 weeks). That's a pretty long RA station, if that's what they will allow. Is that typical? Or will they assign him somewhere else?

After MOS graduation they are assigned to their Permanent Duty Station (PDS). Usually orders for PDS are given about two weeks before graduation.
My Marine went straight to his PDS. He graduated FLW. Even those who get stationed overseas, leave is not guaranteed. The "needs of the Corps" comes first.

Leave after MOS is not common. Leave has to be approved by command and once they graduate MOS they are under a new command.

What usually happens after this schooling...will my son get based someplace a little more permanent?   (or at least more than 3 months?)

Will he get any leave when he is done, or just right to the next place they send him?   Thanks!

Thanks Keri...I will not hesitate to ask if I have questions.  We have been in contact with him the last couple of days.  Coming from dry climate is is adjusting to humidity. But he's young, he can do it!!  I think he is looking forward to classes starting and working out again on a regular basis.  That sounds a little weird since they are in such great shape but he wants to continue doing MCMAP.  I guess we will find out soon enough how this goes and what is next.

Hi Paula, welcome! Congrats to your Marine moving on to another phase of training -- MOS.
Even though some of the discussions above are older, there may be some good things to learn. Questions, just ask. I'll do my best to locate an answer. Hopefully some others are still following to drop in with a word or two. :)
