I just got back in the military on 23 February after a 7 year break. I currently have MOB/deployment orders for the 27th of April but my unit day I can go to the MOB station where my unit is already training. A major from my unit said I can’t go until I get a PHA but I got orders.Will I get in trouble for missing movement or will the unit be responsible? I’m ready to go on my 3rd deployment.Thanks

I called the Ft Bliss hospital. They said once you get there with orders in hand to get DEERS activated, call Tricare to get a primary care doctor, then a PHA can be scheduled. However, if I was you, I would try to get confirmation on this info. I wonder if you have a medical unit nearby that can conduct a PHA for you?
Again, your unit should be coordinating the PHA for you.

Where is your MOB site? Your unit should be giving you more instructions pertaining to solutions to your problem.

Again they need to give you better guidance. I am making an assumption that you can get a PHA at Ft Bliss. Your unit needs to be more proactive to give you time to adjust to plans.

Get your orders changed or go without it.
If your command knows your issue and you're following their instructions it shouldn't be an issue.

MAJ (Join to see) I asked could I go without it and they say I have to have it. I don’t know why they even gave me orders then. So I should be ok to not go then sit?

You should make sure your orders are changed and / or get it done. There's not much to a PHA.
