You could go anywhere there is a decent hospital. Your request is much more likely to be approved if you request "a duty station near hospital that can treat X ailment". If you get hung up on trying to go to only one place you're asking for disappointment.
You could put in the request now, depending on how cooperative your chain of command is. Because you could be bumped off the deployment to go PCS.
BTW the first O-5 in your chain of command is the one who "approve/disapprove" but even if they disapprove the Army could still okay it. You need documentation that she needs to live somewhere else from her doctor.
Be Proud of what you do- and do it Well! ~me

i have a second compassionate turned in, does anyone know where I go to check the status on it? I remember there was a site I went to before to see if it was approved or not but that was some years ago and now I can't find the site. Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks in advance.
