compassionate reassignment

I'm not sure if this is in the right location for this type of question, but I'll ask anyway Smiler

Anyway, I'm a SSG stationed in Korea right now with approx. 7 months left in country. I was stationed in Aberdeen Proving Grounds and came here with a HAP to Ft Carson. My wife and I have one son, which they are still in Maryland. Since Caine started kindergarten in 2005, he has had to see a school speech therapist along with other types of specialist through the next two years of school. Up until the start of this new school year in Aug 07 he hadn't had to be put on any medications for AD/HD. My wife decided to put him on some meds because his outburst and lack of concentration in school was hurting his education.

Skip forward to January 08. Caine started having "tics", which is mild outburst of tourettes, while he was on the first drug. My wife took him to see his doctor and she abruptly took him off of that med and made an appointment with a Pediatric Neurologist that specializes in tic & tourette disorder at Johns Hopkins Hospital. Now I don't know how long these appointments are going to last, and counselors at his school think he should stay there thinking that a move would put undue stress on him. I want Caine to stay in the area he in because of the quality of hospitals around there are considered the best in the world, and the continuity of teachers, counselors, and therapists in the school would be best for him.

Well I want to put in for a compassionate re-assignment I guess. I don't really know anything about it and have never tried to do something like this before. I found the DA form 3739 online, and I can get any documentation needed to support it. What all can I do while I'm here in Korea? And do I have a good reason to want a re-assignment? I feel I do, and I'll do anything I can to take care of my son. Thanks for listening.

I'd recommend you sit down with your S1 and have them walk you through the DA 3739 & if you can get any other additional documentation to make your compassionate packet stronger then do so by all means. If you send me a PM, I can tell you all you need exactly when I get to my office tomorrow. I'm working 3 for guys in my unit right now. Hope I can help though. AR 614-200 Sec 3 para 5-14 also gives more clarity.

5–16. Supporting documentation
The following documentation will be included (as appropriate) with DA Form 3739. (See fig 5–2.)
a. Medical problems. A signed statement from the attending physician giving the specific medical diagnosis and
prognosis of illness. The statement will include date of onset, past and anticipated periods of hospitalization, period of
convalescence, and anticipated life expectancy for terminal cases. The statement will list any other factors that establish
the Soldier’s presence as having a bearing on the medical condition. For cases involving reassignment from OCONUS
location where medical care for family members is not available, include documentation from appropriate medical
authorities stating that fact. (See para 5-15g).

Also add Red Cross messages of any kind you've received, whether you were allowed emergency leave or not.

First timer here, so hello everyone Smiler My question is what if you have 2 dependents with 2 total different reasons for comp reassignments? 1 is medical/health condition, and the other is a child not adapting to the pcs move. (it's been 9 months of hell, really.) Anyone have any advice for us on this? We have counseling records for the child who isn't adjusting well at all...Thanks in advance!

Get w/ the S-1 to start paperwork, and the doctors/ therapists. Your LTC-level is the official who approves/disapproves, so hopefully they're on your side. It will help a ton if your CoC knows what's going on and supports you.

Your right it's all in the paperwork. Thanks to this forum and the valuable info I got my comp assignment approved. My mother has cancer and with that I gathered copies of her medical documents filled out the 3739, 4187 and the 4187-1-R. This last choice is your call but I wrote a letter to the local Congresswomen. The reasons I did this was for timing and visability. I didn't want to submit my paperwork and have it sit on someones desk. Once my battalion signed off on it I knew I wasn't going to have any visability or real time status so to me the letter was a given. To me family is everything. FYI the boards usually meet on Fridays so that afternoon the Congresswoman called me before HRC did to give me the good news. The following Wednesday my orders were cut. Read the regulations and have your documentation in order and mostly have faith.

I have a question my Dad has ALS, and HRC gave me a hard time with my assignment. They gave me Ft. Irwin,just last week, Yes he is in California but in the city of Downey, California. This is about 3 hours away. What can I do to get closer? As I am still not clear when my orders will be cut, it has been since July. Do I ask my new command at Ft. Irwin for time off or what can I expect is this just treated as a PCS move?

They have to follow regular moving rules.
Expect to use leave, and your Losing Command can give you 10days permissive TDY for "house hunting" at the new installation.
((((MAKE SURE you get the housing office to stamp your paperwork on the day the PTDY starts or you get charged leave for those 10days!!!))))

Once you get to the new unit, be respectful, lay out the situation to your supervisor, CDR, and 1SG, so they can try to accomadate you.

-----------------------------------------
As far as orders, when are you supposed to report? If HRC already finished the assignment, bug your unit to bug the local personnel office to get the orders done...

I have a question too maybe someone could answer this for me. We are currently is Italy and my husband is gearing up to go down range. I have been recently diagnosed with acute ptsd and they do not have the facilities I need here. The doctors want a compassionate re-assignment for my husband. Is this an EFMP thing or a compassionate re-assignment, if it's EFMP don't they have to send us back stateside if they can not facilitate me? We literally have no idea where to go with this and either do our doctors.


The men in power are only as good as the women who support them.

It really doesn't have to be either- the family can return home (with justification) anytime. You CAN NOT move back to Europe though.

Talk with the Command to see what they can do for you.

I just came down on orders for DS school with a duty station at Fort.Benning. I was wondering about a compassionate reassignment to Fort.Knox due to my wife having split custody with her EX. He all ready threaten to give us a hard time if I were to move them out of Kentucky. Also since us both being a native of Kentucky and her living only a hour away it would also be a low cost move. What documents would I need if I could get the reassignment.

forty-two, in our case, my husband went back to Germany and cleared us. If you gave someone a power of attorney before you left, they can clear you. In our case, though, my husband was on TDY so he had to go back anyways but when the compassionate came through the report date was 3 Jan and he didn't make it back until 2 Feb so you should be able to go back. If you don't want to leave her, maybe try to send a power of attorney to someone back in Korea that you trust.

11 BANG BANG, I don't think that would be grounds to get a compassionate reassignment; most of the time it is for medical problems w/someone in your family. If you want to submit anyway, your PAC should have a packet for you. There is a request form (3739 or something?) and you should back it up with any documentation you may have of the situation, such as if he has threatened you in writing, or online, or something, but honestly I don't think he can stop your wife from taking her children to live with her. The custody situation may have to be revisited. Good luck!
