So you volunteered for a remote, and got it, and now you are surprised that you have to leave in July and might not get to take your family with you?

I guess you learned the hard way about doing research up front...there are unaccompanied tours in Turkey. And the RNLTD date shouldn't have been a surprise to you either...the RNLTD window is advertised with the assignment cycle. Someone with 14 years in service should know this stuff.

Hope it all works out for you...but you won't get much sympathy from those of us out here working on our 4th and 5th remote tours away from our wives and children.
