Im not really sure which forum to post this question in, but since my boyfriend just signed up for the army, I feel like this would be appropriate. Hes been trying to join since last sept. We found out we were pregnant with our first child in january.. ( of course thats when they speed up all his tests / paperwork ) Anyways, he just told me today, he leaves in march for basic, and will be going to an academy following his graduation from basic.
My question is, since im due in july, will they allow him to come home for the birth if he still isnt done with basic / academy ? any help is appreciated.
I hate to throw cold water on good news, however I once commanded am army basic training unit (I can't speak for the Air Force) and the training command (as policy) would not permit leave for such a purpose. If a leave was granted for emergency reasons he would have to be re-cycled from the very beginning, regardless of how far along he was in the training.
