     Since my husband is on medical hold in Cape May, I had a few questions about his stay there.

    While a person is on medical, what does the unit the person is assigned do about it? Such as, do they have to plan around the missing person or is it not really a big deal?

    I was told while in Cape May that our unit could change during the time hes on medical hold, Why would it change? Would it be more a numbers factor (too many people at the unit) or do they base it off that person whos being held?

    How long does it typically take to get checked out of the base? What involves that process? Is it a ton of paperwork?

    While on base, someone suggested that if hes held there for more than 4 weeks that we should request to be stationed there so I would be able to see him. Is this possible or just good thinking?

    Med Hold sucks..freaked

    The unit he was assigned to is short-handed until they fill the non-rate billet and so they probably can't wait indefinitely.

    How long they are willing to wait is probably a function of several factors (as you suggest, size of the unit is likely relevant) but I doubt any of those factors involve the person who is being held. After all, they don't really know that person at all so they would have no way of making a judgment about them either way.

    There have been previous posters who were headed elsewhere but got held over for medical, dental, etc., and ended up being re-assigned.

    I do not know exactly how long it takes to out-process, but I would be surprised if it took much longer than half a day.

    If he were to request reassignment to Cape May, it's very possible they could accommodate that request. Whether you should do so, however, depends on what y'all want to do.

    Thank for the info. My husband said that it takes 3-5 days to get checked out of Cape May and I thought was a little extreme, but I dont know the military. Well the unit is fairly small(33) and he keeps in contact with his sponsor alot which they have been holding a housing unit for us. The medical its self is very unsure, which is tough on my end because I have no clear dates that I can tell the moving company ect.

    The definition of 'checked out' is probably what is tripping us up. The '3-5' days probably includes the time to cut new orders, process the travel request, etc. I was referring to the time it takes to get out of the gate on the last day: Pick up orders and tickets, check out of housing, etc.

    I will say Fisch has been working very well while he has been on med hold. If i remember right he is only supposed to be there a couple weeks so the chances of him loosing his orders are slim. I do know i will probably not even see him before he leaves as i start my leave tuesday. just relax and everything will work out i promise.

    Thank you southern, they said 3 weeks, but all of it could change due to his tests, so Tuesday we will see what the doc has to say.
