Army R&R Travel from Overseas


Your soldier has to pay for his own travel back home during R&R when he is deployed overseas.


No, he does not. The military pays for this flight to the airport of his choice. The only stipulation is that whatever airport he flies into is the same airport he must fly back out of when he returns to theater.

Please note there is a scam where unsuspecting people are being told that a “soldier” must pay thousands to return home for R&R. The people are asked to wire money to the soldier to pay for his flight or he won’t be able to come home. This is a scam and not legitimate.

    I been talking to a guy from Badoo since February, constantly asking for money, now he say he can only come if I pay for his medical £25! He thinks I’m an idiot!! As if the army make you pay for it! His details given are James Pearson, from Belville Texas and reckons he got a 10yr old son who lives with his friend!!!! Removed from the mother because she cheated on him!! Anyone heard this name before, I have loads of pics and “private” ones, which I think he IS this soldier, so I reckon he is the soldier but still scamming!
