Hello,

My son-in-law is in A school and received notice of his first assignment to Atsugi Japan NAS.  His instructor told him most likely his wife would not be able to accompany him until he reached the rank of E-4.  If I'm reading the information above correctly that is not a true statement.  He is stressing significantly as can be expected.  He has a new wife, newly joined the Navy and now is told he will be separated from his wife for 3+ years.  Is this true?  Thanks in advance.
