Default white house communications

does anyone know what this means? apparently someone nominated my husband for it and waiting for it to be approved is messing with our orders off this rock. DH already has an EOD school date so we are just wondering if it will screw with him being able to go to school.

All I found was this website (which I imagine you've already come across).

http://www.disa.mil/Careers/WHCA

Boo that it is messing up your orders!

ETA: But, it sounds like it could be a good thing!

Dh is comm too. From what he was told by his old boss who did this white house job, he said that they travelled with the president and made sure that the communication was working properly. His job is telephone so he dealt with phones. Dh's other boss that did this job is Radio so he dealt with radios. We don't really know much about it other than they were on stand-by most of the time in case the president needs to do something or go somewhere and that they go tdy A LOT.

Dh thinks that this assignment is a really good bullet for making ranks later on the career and would look good on resume when out of the military.

great.. that is all we need. one not family friendly assignment where he is never home to another. i hope he can get out of it since he already has a school start date. whoever put him up for it was really stupid since they have known he was reclassing for about a year now

I'm not sure how the assignment process work for this white house job. I think though that this is a special duty. I think there's a way that he can change his status from voluteer to non-volunteer that way other guys volunteering would get it first before him. But I might be wrong.

On the bright side, when my dh had approved cross-training. He did everything he could to get out of it and talked to high ups for recommendations, and all but still had to cross-trained and was told that since it was already approved and had a date, they couldn't change it. So hopefully, your dh cross-training is still on.

My DH is TDY nearly 3 months out of the year w/ his EOD duties, aside from deployment obvs. The longer he's in the longer he's gone as he takes Team Lead, etc.

Default Re: white house communications

Hubby just left WHCA (White House Comm) after 3 years...

Its a huge squadron and whether or not he travels depends on what part of the squad he is in. Hubby travelled a lot the first year because he was on travel team, but the last 2 years, not so much because he was in a different unit. Those who come here usually love it, it is very demanding, but great experience, and somewhat prestigious (to others in the military)...

But, its not common to be 'nominated' for WHCA, one usually has to still apply, but it helps to have someone you know in the squadron.. so i'm not sure how he even got put in for it if he didn't want it.

WHCA is its own little world. It is special duty so they get extra pay and can make money when they travel. And his current comm job likely would have nothing to do with his job in WHCA... Hubby is comm, and his job at WHCA had nothing to do with what he was doing in Comm prior to WHCA.
