My husband is leaving in 3 weeks for Drill school. He has gov credit card that will be activated when he goes. I have heard we have to pay the bill in full each month but he doesn't get reinbursed until he gets back and turns all his reciepts in, is this correct or do you not have to pay until you are reinbursed. Can someone please clarify. Because if he gets put in a hotel or something surely we can't afford 30 days in a hotel plus all the other. Thanks in advance.

Maybe an advance in TDY pay will help. He should get with his unit RMO.

Although if you can endure that pain and walk away from it, you'll find that you now have a heart strong enough to overcome any obstacle. Yeah... a heart made Fullmetal."

When he files his DTS for school, he should request partial payments (available for any trips over 30 days I believe). It will give him his per diem for that time frame and I believe it also gives him the chance to file a hotel bill for that time period as well (not possative about the hotel part).

You do a partial voicher at the 30day mark of ANY TDY so you can pay the bill, etc. and i thought you could not get an advance since you have a travel card, its one or the other, correct me if im wrong.
