Training and afterwards...

The training is essentially 3 phases...

Phase I is a 2 week orientation at Ft. Lee, VA. "Yes, Sir; No, Sir" kind of stuff.

Phase II is a 10.5 week course at the military law school on the campus of the University of Virginia in Charlottesville. Karina and the girls will be with me for this part.

Phase III is a 10 week officer basic training at Ft. Benning, GA. This is the real grueling "army" type stuff. Karina and the girls are going to Mexico for this part as they cannot stay with me.

Once done, I return to my job at Catholic Charities. Then it is 1 weekend a month (not overnight) with the Boston unit (about 30 lawyers) and 2 weeks of training in the summer. Deployment is always a possibility, but as I am brand new and know nothing, it is unlikely to happen for awhile.

  1. Tom,

    Just to want to say congratulations and thank you for serving not only our country and the many immigrants serving in the military. While I am very sad to lose your wonderful work, kind spirit and dedication to CCAB/RIS, I know that what you are doing is so important and critical to many and we will somehow manage without you! Now, on to planning a good-luck party....
