Whenever it is, it isn't soon enough. This is the most nerve-racking process I think I've ever been through. Driving me, the wife, the kiddies, and the dog crazy. I'm smoking my fingernails and chewing my cigarettes!:laugh:
Interviewed last month, waiting for the ever-elusive "DB" to tell me my fate. Quick question: should I avoid the dreaded "Sorry, but...." letter and get a call, do they call overseas? Reason I ask is because I'm deploying tomorrow morning for 3+ months in paradise. Told the wife that IF the phone rings, give them the number to the squadron, and they'd know how to reach me. Does that pass the sound judgement test?
While I can't say for sure, I surmise that if they will call overseas to check references (and they do), they will probably call you overseas as well. No promises though. They will probably call your primary contact number first (home or whatever you gave them on your application), so I suggest you leave a good forwarding number for them with whomever answers your primary number.
I realize the previous sentences ran on a bit, but I hope you were able to get the point I was trying to make.
