    So yesterday i received an email from an AMEDD recruiter in my area that my actually recruiter has been using as a liason because i am currently on a travel assignment. The email had a file attached to it from the HRC entitled assignment instructions I'm guessing they're orders but it's a pretty PDF-type file i was really expecting something that resembled an old school typed out letter for orders...or i have been watching too much Apocalypse Now ;-) The file was dated 02/25/2011 so someone has has been hanging on to it for a week. The actually email said "call me tomorrow"...i love a man of many words! So i guess i will give a call today and have him help me decipher the alphabet/number soup that may or may not be my orders.

    That's the RFO -- request for orders, which means your actual orders are in the works. I got a copy of my RFO from our branch manager on Wednesday. My recruiter said the actual orders won't have the pretty colors or HRC on the top, but will say Department of the Army.

    I only had 2 1/2 weeks max from the time my orders came in to the time they said to report on the 8th. So I hope you guys get 'em soon!

    And they're just plain ol' black & white typing thrown on a piece of paper. No special nothing for those asking.

    Also, for any of you getting to San Antonio earlier than BOLC this month, message me! We can workout, because I'm still majorly needing work on my 2 mile run!

    Hey all! I'm a little late to the party but I just wanted to say hi and thanks for all the info! I'm glad to run/train with anyone, I need it too! I still haven't received orders, though my assigment officer tells me I'm in the March class. Is anyone assigned to Korea after BOLC? Like I said, I don't have orders but I'm told that's where I'm headed.

    Hi Ashley! Welcome to allnurses, congrats on your selection! I'm really really really hoping we get orders this week....

    I've been told I'll be going to Ft. Stewart after BOLC.

    I can't believe you guys still don't have orders... okay well I can believe it!

    Ashley, I lived in Korea for a bit when my husband was stationed there. Will you be at Yongsan? I really liked it, my husband hated it.

    I think the poor Accessions Branch is tearing out their collective hair, waiting for the funding to come through. Should happen very very soon, from what I've heard. Yes, I'm still waiting as well!

    Got my orders last night in the mail. Felt relieved to know I have them but reality is starting to sink in. Report date in 15 days...yikes!

    Lunah, I'm right there with you. Still no orders!! However, I did just receive an e-mail from my TAC officer saying that I'm enrolled in the Prep Course. Does anyone know if everyone without military experience goes to that class because this is the first time I'm hearing about this. The report day is tomorrow! And I'm in Delaware still... without orders. Kind of freaking out. Anybody have any info to throw my way?

    i'm there with you too, still nothing! even my recruiter is starting to question if i'll really be in the march group. ashleyot, i don't know about the pre-course, but i wish i did seeing as i don't have any prior military experience and could definitely benefit from it! good luck!! adl11, i'm so glad there's someone who's spent time in korea; i'll definitely be picking your brain about it lol, hope that's ok! i think it will be the 121csh/brian allgood army community hospital at yongsan--but i'm still not sure. bolc video, check it out and get psyched!! lol
