My husband has reenlisted in the military. We are now stationed in Hawaii. I am sure I will meet some other military moms on the base, but maybe not Christian ones. Just curious if anyone else out there is in a similar situation? Thanks!

My husband and i are both in the air force, we are based at a small base in the north of Scotland, there are alot of mums here and i did meet one or two christian ones at the church service on camp, so maybe you will be lucky, either way, there is always someone to chat to :)

It is hard and we have had close friends of ours that the wives just couldn't handle it and left. It is a hard life but one that I can say for us brings my family closer together! It surprises me how my family really pulls together for me and they help me in what ever way I need...and my church family, they really are something special! I will say a quick prayer for you guys!

Speaking of deployment, my husband is going to be deployed in a few months. It will be hard for us since we were apart while he was in school. We just got back together and moved to Hawaii to find out he is leaving again soon for a year. Guess I need to get used to him being gone!!

I am a military spouse, mine has been for 19 years, coming up on his 20. He just recently got deployed again for his second tour over seas (1-8-11). We are not on a base but we are in the utmost important, Christians! Welcome to the group! It has been a while since I have gotten to post anything on here because we have been getting ready for my husbands deployment. I pray you do find some Christians there on the base as it is very hard to find those that "are in your shoes". That is one thing about where we are, there are no family or friends that know what this feels like or the emotions that go along with it!

I remember how hard it was when I was an Army wife...I tried everything to find like minded people! It's not as easy as people would think.

I agree that communicating with the military group could be helpful, but I may not find anyone who is Christian. I was kinda hoping for both military and Christian. I guess that is a lot to hope for!! Why aren't the 2 groups compatable? Ha! Ha!

not a current military wife, but I used to be. I'm also a veteran and a Christian. I know what it's like to be away from home and trying to make new friends. :-)

I totally know the feeling. We too are in the Army. We are stationed in Ft Bragg NC. Yuck!!! I know I am on the other side of the US but it is so hard to find strong Christian moms/wives in the Army. I know it is for me. Or maybe just not looking in the right places. Our church family has helped out. One of the things I started to do was reach out to "older" military moms/wives. They have helped me out so very much with their knowledge and their support. They have already been down that road. Dont know if it will help you out any but its worth a shot. Good luck.
