Here's a corker for anyone in the know. The problem: I have applied to live out and seem to be getting the run around with permission. My situation: I currently have a room in the Sgt's mess which is SLAM accom but never use it. I am never on camp to take meals but if I did stay on camp I would leave before the mess is open and return when it's closed. I would have to travel to my present job which is a 30 min drive from my unit. I have my own property which is approx a 1 hr drive from my job. The distance is around 53 miles. I only have 3 months left at work before my resettlement and termination leave after more than 22 years service. I have applied to live out in my own property after testing the route and shift pattern and found it more advantageous for me to live at home. My problem is, the powers to be are giving me the run around with my application to live out as they think the distance is too far? I have never had a problem with lateness. I'm a SNCO and suppose to be an adult. I'm losing money each month with SLA and food charges and also paying for my own fuel as I am staying at my own house. Is there anyone who can offer advice on this as to what further actions I could take if they continue to delay the application and can it be back dated to when the application was submitted? Whats an even bigger kick in the teeth is our unit has Pte soldiers who have been granted permission even though they live further.
