I signed my DA 199 on 27th of June. Can I expect my LOR next week. She sent my school acceptance letter with my 199 to try an have it expedited. Do you think that will help any?...trying to start school mid aug, my Commander is willing to give me the max amount of leave (OCONUS) I can have so that I can attend school.

It's supposed to take 10 days. I signed on 26 June and nothing yet. I am sending a letter to expedite signed by Commander. They don't need a letter of acceptance or anything. Being in the IDES program in Germany seems to be a curse. We have the longest timelines for everything except pay.

I just got word my name was on transit list today, signed 199 may 30th. I have 52 days of leave and I guess since my transition and my command are supportive I get enough time to clear and get back home before I start my leave. I officially start leave with 10 days of permissive tdy on Aug 2nd. My actual leave starts Aug 12th.since you accumulate days while on leave my final out date for the army is Oct 4th I pick up my orders tomorrow and try to clear asap.

Expect 8 weeks for PDA to process your packet. That is what they are putting out as their average right now. IF you get a Approved Expedited letter (your commander isn't the approval or high enough to say yes/no but helps show/tell why you need it. It will come from the PEB or PDA with their approval signature on it and go along with your packet) then you are looking at a few days to week or two before you hit the list to clear.

Who did you send the letter to? For example, did you get your PEBLO to expedite it and was it memorandum?
My PEB was expedited so I called the PDA on Friday to ask if they receive an expedite Memo from the PEB the Rep looked into my file and told me yes but if you want a faster processing ask your PEBLO to upload it to the "PDA group email".
I called again today to confirm that they got it for sure (to avoid what happen with the PEB where my PEBLO sent my C&P and they didn't receive it and ended up waiting 5 months for PEB) and the guy asked me where I'm stationed I said Germany. He said since I'm overseas he's going to do it right now. He did it while I was over the phone! Picking up orders today hopefully.

Ok, so I finally called the PDA and was greeted with a very pissed of person wondering why I am calling him and not my PEBLO. I told him that I haven't heard from my PEBLO in about a month and no matter what messages I left they were never returned. I finally told him hey my Unit is trying to RCP me out of the military and is ordering me to sign my RCP paperwork. He asked what that was and even got more pissed about my COC trying to pull some shady shit. OK so regardless that phone call got me my PDIR on Friday. The question I have is how the hell do I read this? Because PEBLO told me to hand it into my S1 and they went home early so now I have a weekend to figure what the hell I am looking at. the only thing I know is that my final date in the military is 24 OCT 2017.

What did you have to do with it? Did it get you your orders?
I had to give it to my S1 for them to go over my leave and produce my own separation packet ie memorandums and other stupid things because my unit is really fd up. It is different because I am NG AGR which has to go through my HRO which is a pain. But you should be able to take yours to the transition center, which should be the welcome center when you first got to your post.
