Just seeing if there are any other new Army wife's out there. I am very use to the Army life but not as a wife. This part is all new to be. My husband and I are recently married but have been together three years and I have been thur all sorts of stuff with him while he has been in. I also have two brother's and a sister in law all in the Army. So its not all that new - but now that Im a wife it just seems different ... Is that normal??? Also were ( my kids and I ) new to the Ft.Hood Texas area. Its a Big difference from our home state of Ohio.

Hey Katie! I grew up in the Army and am now a wife to a soldier. What you're going through is completely normal! Ft. Hood IS huge, but there's a ton of stuff to do. I know it can seem really hard, but get involved with one or two things on post and you'll find you start to feel more comfortable and can keep in touch with everything going on in the area. Good luck and welcome to the Army!

Hi Katie, welcome to Ft. Hood and Army life...lol We have been here in Harker Heights for about 1 1/2 years. I am not new to this life. We have 2 more years and he is retired.

What you are feeling is normal. You are welcomed to connect with me if you would like some help with anything.

Hello, I am not at fort hood...currently my husband is in Korea doing an unaccompanied tour so we are in SC and waiting to get his next assignment. I have been married to my husband for 6 years but I was in the Army when we were first married. I got out of the Army last year so I am still getting used to the differences as an Army wife. And truthfully I think I liked being in the Army better than being out. It is very hard meeting people and also finding a job at the same time as getting your family situated. Good luck and if you ever have any questions feel free to ask, I know a lot about the Army!

Hey Katie, looks like you've found quite a few army wives! My husband (of 7 years) has been in for 6 years, and we have two kids. Aurora is 4, and Jordan just turned 1. My hubby's been stationed at Fort Hood since June, and the kids and I have been here since August. We love it! We are originally from Michigan, so this is completely different! There is a lot to do in the area. You should find the Fort Hood FMWR on fb, b/c they always have posts on freebies and things to do. We live in Belton, but it sounds like it may be fun to try and get a mom play date going on! BLORA is a great place for families. Enjoy this area while you're here!

Hi, Katie! My husband has been stationed at Ft. Hood since March 2010. Currently he's deployed and we (me and the kids) are living in MO with my family but we'll be back to Hood by the end of December. I love the Ft. Hood area and can't wait to get back there! It was a huge change for us because I grew up in MO, then lived in MN where my husband is from, then moved to Ft. Hood....one extreme to the other! If you have any questions about the area or need a friend feel free to ask. Are you on FB? Feel free to add me if you are...I have a few friends still in the Hood area that are just wonderful, too!

Hi Katie. I am getting ready to move down to TX from IN this weekend to be with my new husband too. We actually got married before he left for his training! I am pregnant, due Dec. 18, so I will be in the same boat you are in, but will be at Fort Sam Houston.
