Are you joining as an officer or enlisted?

Ship date wouldn’t be for a couple of months so I’d be able to give my team lead time. Any advise on how to navigate?

Definitely don't mention anything until you have actually sworn in. Decide what's the minimum reasonable notice to give them based on your assessment of the project. Remember that there is no requirement of advance notice but of course you want to be a good teammate. it's unlikely that they would just roll you off immediately but they would start looking for people to replace you and might ask you to step away early if they find somebody who can start sooner. So, decide whether that matters to you.

My grandparents never make an effort to ask about my life or how things are going. I’ve gotten a promotion, switched roles, etc and they’ve never asked about any new and exciting life events. When I finally do visit them all they can do is comment on my weight or how I look - basically anything they can nitpick about my appearance, and then guilt me for not visiting them more. Am I being dramatic by not wanting to interact with them anymore? Do they get a pass to be rude because they’re old?
