Stoploss Question

Has anyone here had a spouse stoplossed after receiving orders to PCS? We are on orders for overseas (have been since Jan) and we are to ship the car on Friday and already have movers coming next week. DH's unit is coming down on a stoploss order (it has been "unofficially" released) and now we are wondering if he will get to PCS or not.

Anyone with experince in this?

DH is active duty Army.

That is a tricky one. I really couldn't guess either way. I don't know if this helps or not, but DH had a soldier being thrown out for weight issues stop-lossed to go to Iraq with them last year and they protested and their CO got him out instead of making him deploy.

I hope you get the news you are hoping for. I'd have him hounding anyone he can bend an ear on.

WE were faced with that possibility in Hawaii right after 9/11. We were to ship our car that very week! It was very frustrating since no one knew what was going on, but Dh just talked to his commander to find out what he would suggest he do. He told us to ship it and we did, thankfully it all worked out and we moved on schedule. The only thing I can suggest it keep bugging them for info.

Is it a stop-loss, a stop-move or both?
If it is just a stop-loss order, it usually means that people can not get out of the military period.
If it's a stop-move, it means nobody will PCS from this dutystation (which in your case, you would not move, unless you already shipped your HHG's. It doesn't matter if you have orders or not, they would most likely be defered).
If it's both, well, neither you nore anybody else will be moving or retiring or ETSing. Click here to enlarge

Thanks for the input. It is a stoploss not a stop move and I think we will be ok. DH actually spoke with his branch manager who said we are not affected as two soldiers are taking DH's job and one is already here. I think the only one who would keep us here would be the brigade commander who DH works very close with, but I don't even think he would change things at this point. I will have to keep my fingers crossed though as you know how things constantly change in this environment.
