But only crazy people want to fly. Catch-22.
Today was a fine exercise in logic. The S1 lost my overseas orders. They will not attempt to find my orders until I put in the dates for my PCS (permanent change of station) leave.
In order to know my dates for leave, I need two things: an overseas brief so I know what I need to plan for, and my transportation brief so I know the details of when I need to get my car to port and so on.
In order to get a transportation brief scheduled, I need to present them with five copies of my orders.
Furthermore, the S1 says that my company clerk doesn’t need to know when the next overseas brief is, because according to their records no one in his company is going overseas because no one has orders to go overseas.
So without the orders I can’t schedule the two briefs and without these briefs I can’t get my leave form done and apparently therefore can’t get my overseas orders which are necessary to schedule these two briefs with which I could complete the leave form that would allow me to get my orders.
My platoon leader told me I was allowed to go up there and punch them all as long as I said I was from the other company.
