I would involve the IG, so these idiots at MPF don't get away with this. I always wondered what liability the MPF and orderly room people had when they screwed something up. I had a huge pay problem that was the fault of MPF.
Anyway, I'm glad you now are able to take your family. My only regret of the time 8 years I spent in the USAF is that I didn't get to take my family overseas. Congratulations and have fun.
