Hi...I'm glad to find this 'community'. I've found christian ones & Army ones but was trying to find one with both and here it is! ☺
My hubby has been working with the recruiter to get enlisted and after this, that & the other thing being left out or forgotten they told him this afternoon that he should be headed to MEPS next week. We are excited and nervous about the changes we will be coming to but feel that the Lord has lead us thus far and as long as we rely on Him, He will continue to take care of us.
About me, I'm Charlene....32 & so is my hubby & we've got 4 children (11-g, 7-g, 3-b & 1-g) and our anniversary is tomorrow, we'll be married for 9 years! There are no bases for full time active Army in our state so we know that we will eventually have to move away and we are kind of looking forward to it. We haven't really told our family/friends about our plans as when we told his parents they REALLY frowned on his signing up, like basically said he's too old, what's he thinking he has young kids, did he actually tell me what his plans are and on and on....it was really hard. So we decided that once he's gone through MEPS and has the exact date for basic then we'll tell everyone this IS what we're doing and they can accept it or not but it's not up for discussion.
We've been through a lot in our relationship and we both feel this is a good move for us. Hopefully I'll be able to get advice and learn some things from you other Army wives out there. ☺
