  1. Hi Megan-
    My husband is set to begin CBOLC at Fort Leonard Wood next month. In fact, I found your blog by searching for information on chem school! Your blog has been more insightful than most things that I have found and I am looking forward to a fun MO bucket list now! :) I was hoping that you could provide me with a little more insight as to what to expect from CBOLC. We are trying to weigh if I come out for the duration of the school or if I should just remain here and visit. We are currently packing everything up to put in storage until we get our first duty station. My husband just got off the phone with billeting and was told that although spouses are authorized to accompany them to FLW, it really depends on if the room shares a bathroom with another room so we won't know for sure until he gets there. Also, we have a small dog and were told that pets are not allowed in the lodging there. ANY advice/experience that you have is greatly appreciated. I can't seem to find any additional information and thought that I'd reach out to someone that has been there. :)
    Hope that 2013 is off to a great start!

    Kindest Regards,
    Candace :o)
