Ugh! Deployment

Got the news yesterday that my son is going to deploy. Naturally he can't tell me much about it. Plus this is his first time, so it's all new to him too.

My big question right now that I am hoping someone can give me some feedback on is: He will be moving from his home base to the base from which he will deploy. What are the chances of us getting to see him at the new base,even if only for a few hours, before he deploys?

As he gets closer to the date, he should get an idea of when his flight will be, and, from my experience being the "deployer" he will have time to see family/friends before getting on the bus to the airport/airfield.

Not sure what branch-army soldiers-even guard soldiers, get a leave period or at least a pass to go home or have family members come and visit prior to leaving the states for deployment.

He's army. It's good to know we should be able to see him before he goes. There are so many questions I have. Hopefully he will have some answers soon.

Regular Army? Guard? Reserves?

If he's regular Army he is PCSing?

If not I'm assuming he will be sent to a Post for training before deploying. That is the way I've seen it done in the past. My husband built barracks at Fort Riley they guys would stay in to do training before deployment.

Generally I've seen deployment ceremonies before leaving.
